Ministry training (BEST)

Every three months, we produce a newsletter with updates from our study partners around the world. Read the latest one here.

BEST (Bursaries Enabling Strategic Training) is the Crosslinks bursary programme.

There are many places across the world where churches have few or no trained leaders. In Kenya, for example, there is a region the size of England which has just 15 trained clergy. Without sufficient trained leaders, churches lack consistency in Bible teaching, discipleship and evangelism. Crosslinks has years of experience in training church leaders and workers and our bursary programme provides both financial and prayer support for individuals from these areas so that they can be trained for Bible-teaching ministries. 

The Crosslinks bursary programme helps to:

  • Fund local courses that are contextually and culturally relevant to mission.
  • Ensure promising candidates have the financial means to take courses.
  • Resource local churches by providing trained leaders and ministers.
  • Foster valuable links between study partners and supporting churches and individuals.

Through getting involved with BEST, churches in the UK and Ireland can play a real part in taking God’s word to God’s world by praying for them and supporting them financially. You can partner with individual study partners (whom you can get to know here). You can also donate to the BEST general fund and your gift will go to any study partners with a shortfall.
