Introducing the Pastor Sponsorship Program

Jul. 6, 2012By: Darren CarlsonAuthor Bio

We are happy to announce the launching of our Pastor Sponsorship Program. The program gives everyone an opportunity to meet the pastors we are training and give them the gift of theological training. When you sponsor a pastor your are covering the cost to train a Christian leader who has almost no access to sound theological training. 

Here are the basics:

What is the purpose of the Pastor Sponsorship Program?

The Pastor Sponsorship Program is for ground level partnering with pastors in training. These investments ensure that TLI’s partnering pastors receive theological education, and allow believers in the States to connect with them through prayer and ministry updates.

How does my donation for my pastor get used?

Your donation goes to the cost of training the pastor. This could include translation of the material, printing of documents, pastors travel cost and more. THE MONEY DOES NOT go to cover the day-to-day living expenses of the pastor. 

How long is the commitment?

We ask you commit until the pastor has finished our training program. This lasts anywhere from 2-4 years.

Do the pastors you train pay any portion of the training they are receiving?

As a general rule, we ask pastors and their churches to pay for something, even if it is small amount to show that they value what they are doing. We never want cost to be prohibitive.
