Two years ago I had an idea. Could we create a free online journal that addressed issues related to global Christianity that was accessible in multiple languages. Today that idea is reality.
Training Leaders International just released the first volume of the Journal of Global Christianity, which has 120 pages of articles, book
reviews, and abstracts. The journal is available in five languages: English,
French, Spanish, Chinese, and Farsi.
Journal of Global Christianity seeks to promote international scholarship and
discussion on topics related to global Christianity. The journal addresses key
issues related to the mission of the Church, in hopes of helping those who
labor for the gospel wrestle with and apply the biblical teachings on various
challenging mission topics. The journal targets an audience of pastors, missionaries, and
Christian workers around the world.
Our first edition contains the following contributions:
- Darren Carlson | EDITORIAL: Introducing the Journal of Global Christianity

Origins: Conversation and Cultural Identity

Join me in praising God for all those who made this journal possible. May this journal also be an encouragement to our brothers and sisters around the world.
