training national leaders

Church leaders worldwide state that the greatest need of the global church is to train national leaders.

The International Imbalance

The largest Christian communities today reside not in the west, but in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Despite persecution and poverty, the non-western church is growing rapidly. With this growth comes a significant need for leadership training. In fact, those leading 85% of these churches have no formal training in theology or ministry.


Our Global Partnership

College Church partners with 14 national seminaries to train national Christian leaders for gospel work among their own people and to the least-reached peoples of the world. Through the provision of scholarships, committed career missionaries and short-term teachers, we seek to aid the educational aims of these institutions.

Fellowship for Theological Training

The Fellowship for Theological Training (FTT) exists to promote theological understanding and biblical exposition in local churches around the world.

Our Approach

FTT is a fellowship of pastors and theological educators who are members of College Church and who have expertise and experience related to theological studies and/or biblical exposition. FTT solicits and responds to requests for training in theological studies and/or biblical exposition that FTT receives from overseas schools, church leaders and ministry organizations.
