Some Endorsements for TLI

Feb. 5, 2015By: Darren CarlsonAuthor Bio

022012_1907_DA332c8f2d44The vision of Training Leaders International -- bringing together Christian pastors who have enjoyed the privileges of training with Christian pastors in cultures where there are few opportunities for training -- is proving fruitful and encouraging. It brings biblical and theological content to the people best positioned to pass it on to others. Most forms of short-term mission are fraught with troubling downsides, but this pattern of transferring serious theological nourishment is enriching both parties to the glory of God.

------D.A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School



I love the goal of international, Christ-exalting, theological famine relief. And I love the way God has raised up Training Leaders International to meet that need with real live,

johnpiper Spirit-filled, human teachers, on the ground, face-to-face with seasoned and emerging pastors and Christian leaders who have little or no opportunity for in-depth theological training. So I thank God for Darren Carlson, and the amazing ministry God is gathering around his vision. May the word of the Lord run and be glorified! 

-----John Piper, Pastor for Preaching and Vision at Bethlehem Baptist Church


2014_3$largeimg205_Mar_2014_081757833Church leaders in the developing world are longing to receive in-depth theological training but are most often hindered by lack of opportunity. TLI strategically leverages the advantages of the western church and training institutions by sending teachers with a passion to spread the supremacy of God and with humble hearts to serve these pastors who long to receive sound bible-based training. We are so grateful for their partnership with ARCC as we are together raising up a new generation of leaders thoroughly equipped to spread the gospel throughout Africa and beyond!

-----Jeff Atherstone, Principal of African Renewal Christian College
