Want to support this mission?

God is raising up pastors and leaders for the Church all over the world. Those pastors and leaders want to effectively lead God’s people to work together to make disciples and start evangelistic communities for the sake of God’s mission. Growing in Christian leadership is a life-long process — pastors and key leaders need leadership learning communities and other experienced Christian leaders who are willing to come alongside them to encourage, equip and empower them in their missional leadership development, as well as in the development of missional, evangelistic communities.

We believe that through Leadership Essentials training and through an equipped and transformed pastor or key leader, tens, hundreds, and thousands of baptized believers can be empowered for their participation in the mission of God.

We at PLI are very grateful for your interest in the leadership and discipleship training, learning communities, and leadership coaching that PLI provides. You can see the breadth of our international trainings in the calendar below. Please note some countries may not be listed to protect our sisters and brothers who are boldly proclaiming the Gospel amidst persecution and risk to their own lives.

  • 4 continents outside of North America, within
  • 25 different countries, with
  • 34 different church bodies or networks, and with
  • 13 different denominations or non-denominational networks

See what our partners around the world are saying about their PLI Christian leadership training.
