Missions 101

Exciting Times for Training Leaders International

Oct. 8, 2012By: Darren CarlsonAuthor Bio

TLI has been experiencing the gracious hand of God in the past few years. We just had our bi-annual staff and board meetings. I thought I would share some of the things that are happening:

  • We decided to centralize our office in Minneapolis. As we have continued to add staff, we have found it necessary to come together to a common location. Pray that we can find a good place to have an office!
  • Our board is definitely engaged in the mission. We had a wonderful board meeting with new ideas being discussed. Pray for the board to make wise decisions as they steward the ministry.
  • Our staff is growing. It is true that we are hiring more people, but even more, our staff is learning to work together and serve one another. Pray for the staff to be effective in their roles.
  • We have a lot of work to do! The big one is curriculum and translation. Every 3-4 months we are putting out a new class and having it translated. Pray for Philemon as he heads up the team to write the material.
  • We are intent on sending more missionaries and serving them well. We have opportunities and now are making a concerted effort to fill them. Pray that God would raise up competent people to teach and be sent.
  • We have launched our Pastor Sponsorship Program. You can now visit our website and read the bios of many of our pastors. More will be posted soon. Sponsoring a pastors allows us to cover the cost of training.

Thanks for praying for us. We are experiencing the answers to your prayers on a regular basis. Keep them coming!
