AMT INTERNATIONAL TRAINING


 In response to the overwhelming need for the training of leaders worldwide, AMT has broadened its commitment to training worldwide through setting up the Thelma Lilian Dutton Fund from a generous bequest. Donations given for training will be matched from this fund. AMT is partnering with ACCS (Australian College of Christian Studies, formerly Emmaus Australia) who is also working in conjunction with BTN (Brethren Training Network), the training arm of IBCM Network, to provide training to key overseas leaders in our network.

This International Training initiative seeks to strengthen churches worldwide through providing quality training through on location and in context training, and where possible internationally recognized accreditation.

The Need

In many places around the world the gospel has taken root and there are a growing number of churches. However, in many areas, specifically in the majority world, the local Christians do not have access to pastoral, leadership, and Bible training that is essential to ensure the growth, maturity, and future of the churches.

The greatest consistently expressed need across the majority world countries is that of training leaders. In many countries the missionaries have pioneered effective evangelism and church planting ministries leaving behind
a body of nationally run churches. However, upon the missionary returning home, the support of the sending country has often declined or ceased completely. In most cases there has been little follow-up support provided to train the leaders of the churches to ensure the stability, protection, and future growth of the churches. In many places, false teaching, cults, prosperity doctrine, and syncretism have negatively affected or even destroyed churches.

The national leaders are now crying out for our help. "Train us!" they say, "So we can feed the many who need our leading." This area of work is one of the key areas for mission today. It is this specific need and call that ACCS seeks to address through the International Training initiative. It is time to develop an international approach to providing accredited training that can serve our leaders and our churches in all countries. It's time to...

TRAIN THE TRAINER.
