When you sponsor a pastor to train for ministry, you’ll have a stake in God’s mission. You will sow a seed that will yield a harvest of many.

Thousands of pastors around the world have not been trained for ministry. As we approach the Crosslinks centenary in 2022, our vision is to be supporting 100 students each year through studies in their own context. This requires more Christians in Britain and Ireland to get behind them. You can play a part by praying for and giving towards a pastor's studies.
