Up to 62 percent of the world’s pastors have no formal training. There is an estimated 3.2M pastors in developing nations who have no Bible training. Global Action is standing in the gap by training pastors and lay people around the world. This training is done through conferences for pastors, youth and families, and an 8-month global modular training program (GLOMOS) in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Latin America and Ukraine.
Untrained pastors around the world long for an opportunity to learn, but lack the resources to attend formal seminary. The Global Module Studies program (GLOMOS) systematically and thoroughly trains Christian leaders in practical pastoral and theological instruction.
Global Action's Response to the Need
Global Action is committed to training ministers in developing countries, who often pastor churches in remote villages. They may have come to Christ from Hinduism, Islam or Buddhism by someone sharing Christ with them, through reading the Bible, or by receiving a miracle that took place in their lives. As they begin to share their story and the Gospel, people begin receiving Christ. Soon they find themselves the pastor of "the church," without any training whatsoever.
Global Action adopts a non-traditional, non-formal, and innovative approach where the training is not delivered in a permanent setting of a campus with permanent faculty. Training is conducted in facilities near students’ residences or places of ministry and work. Both national and international faculty teach the modular courses. The training takes three days a month for ten months for eight months.
Global Action has operated GLOMOS since 2001 and the results have been phenomenal. Over 5,500 pastors and leaders have been trained and they, in turn, have trained many thousands more.
