In its 20th year of equipping pastors around the world, God has blessed LeadersFormation with an exciting new partnership with Harvesters International. Both ministries aim to provide church leaders with training and support that would otherwise be unavailable to them in their remote communities, so this collaboration may just be a match made in heaven!
While living in Honduras in 2002, Hannibal founded “LeadersFor” (now known as LeadersFormation) when he saw the need for leadership development in the local church. He quickly realized that this need went beyond Honduras, as the majority of leaders and pastors in churches around the world do not have access to seminary or Christian coaching. Since then, LeadersFormation has set up projects in Asia, Africa, and Central America to meet this need for churches globally.
Through the new partnership with Harvesters International, LeadersFormation hopes to expand its reach to more churches and nations. As Harvesters International establishes churches in remote parts of the world, LeadersFormation will work alongside their new church plants to equip and empower their leaders. LeadersFormation plans to continue their model of training: within three or four years, visiting pastors from Canada train the local leaders so that they have the tools and resources needed to disciple and reproduce leaders in the future.
Since LeadersFormation joined the Fellowship International family, it’s been incredible to witness the doors that God has opened for this ministry. Director Ben Porter shares, “It is amazing how God continues to bless Fellowship International. This partnership with Harvesters International will be an impactful tool for years to come.” Propelled by a united God-sized vision, we hope to see many church leaders and churches flourish in this new chapter of LeadersFormation.
LeadersFormation needs coaches for on-field training, in addition to churches that can partner in raising funds for these life-changing projects. If you or your church have a heart for equipping leaders around the world, click here.
