Starting iconFrom the beginning, Jesus and the apostles recognized the need to prepare Christians for service, and to train the next generation in church leadership, ministry and mission. The bodies and initiatives represented on this website recognize not only their own training needs, but also the need to support local churches so that they have the people they need in order to continue to flourish and multiply as churches. This section focuses on the key training initiatives, while recognizing that other CSN bodies also provide valuable training for churches and others.
