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 10 trained clergy. Without sufficient trained leaders, churches lack consistency in Bible teaching, discipleship and evangelism. 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.

We have years of experience in training church leaders and workers. 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.
