Training and equipping leaders has always been the driving force behind the Church Planting Movement (CPM) in North India. To continue and further accelerate the CPM, more leaders will need to be nurtured. Our capacity to train leaders has been limited – especially Community Learning Center (CLC) leaders. CLC’s have been the catalyst for accelerating the CMP since 2008 when this strategy was implemented. However, our capacity to train CLC leaders has been de-centralized and fragmented. We recognize the need to centralize this process while at the same time opening up our leadership development training to other organizations in India and around the world.
The Global Learning Center will significantly add capacity for training and developing leaders. The GLC will be our center of excellence for leadership development – not only for the leadership needs of ASSI, but also for developing, training, and equipping leaders of other organizations and other countries. ASSI believes that as we train and equip organizations and believers who have been called for discipling & church planting, the result will be a great harvest among unreached people in India and around the world.
