CHALLENGES TO ADDRESS
Heartland Biblical Leadership Seminary
We hear from many pastors regularly, who share with us the many challenges that they face personally, raising up leaders and in desiring to grow themselves. We want to see these challenges met!
Challenge - Many pastors, church planters, evangelists and other church leaders do not feel that they have the adequate training needed for the work of the ministry that they have been called to.
Challenge - Many potential leaders do not feel they will be fully able to achieve the vision that God has given them without first getting a seminary education.
Challenge - Great leaders often leave their fruitful ministries in order to pursue a seminary education, sometimes allowing their current ministries to diminish, or even shut down. This stunts the rate of multiplication in church planting.
Challenge - The cost of relocating (especially if a leader has a family), along with the costs of tuition, can be prohibitive to their pursuit of a ministry education.
Challenge - Statistics show that 8 out of 10 leaders who leave their homeland for training, never return.
Challenge - There are many areas of the world that the internet is still not available for on-line educational opportunities.
