As intimidating as it may seem, God actually calls local churches to prepare people for mission. IMB Training equips churches with essential tools for raising up faithful cross-cultural workers. So much of missionary training is basic discipleship—loving and following Christ. IMB Training resources work with the discipleship efforts of local churches. Our materials and courses are practical, current, and culturally informed. We draw upon the experience and wisdom of practicing missionaries from around the world so that local churches can better fulfill God's calling at home.
The IMB has developed two new online training tools for churches.
Spend 15 to 20 minutes at a time in our focused reading collections for an introduction to topics and concepts that are integral to missions.
Engage in more in-depth missions training that equips you with necessary tools for cross-cultural discipleship at home and abroad.
Lead your church to fulfill the Great Commission with a two-day live conference for missions leaders that combines motivating theological messages with practical “how-to” sessions.
