Training Indigenous Church Leaders – Tony Merida

God commissions his people to be global disciple-makers. We go. We send. We baptize. We teach others to obey God’s Word. We primarily do this through church planting.

But some places are harder to plant in than others.

Church in Hard Places is a resource-sharing collaborative that trains and supports indigenous church leaders in poor communities. One way this collaborative trains indigenous church leaders is through church-planting apprenticeships. Participants receive two years of theologically robust and culturally relevant instruction to equip them to serve in their contexts, and they are brought into a larger network of likeminded church planters.

Joining us on the podcast today is Matthew Spandler-Davison. Matthew serves as director of Church in Hard Places. He’s also the executive director of 20Schemes and the pastor of Redeemer Fellowship in Bardstown, Kentucky.
