Timothy Leadership Training Program Our Story

In many countries around the world the Christian church is growing rapidly, often in places of economic need and political restrictions. It is common for pastors and other church leaders to be appointed with little or no training. As they engage in challenging ministry and observe the proliferation of sects and non-Christian teaching, they sense a great need to be trained themselves and to train the lay leaders of their churches.

Recognizing this acute need, particularly in Africa, an international team of educators came together during the 1990s to address this challenge. They represented a variety of mission groups and churches. Over the next two decades, the team designed, field-tested and continually revised what is today Timothy Leadership Training (TLT). TLT is now being implemented in over 40 countries worldwide and in more than 30 languages.
