Entrust

Entrust's vision is, "To see multiplying leaders for multiplying churches." We do this through our mission statement, "To multiply church leaders through accessible, locally owned, 
reproducible training systems."

Entrust is an organization strategically positioned to equip other ministries with the tools necessary to train men and women to lead a rapidly growing church around the world. Currently, Entrust is equipping indigenous ministries to train leaders in Europe, the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Latin America and North America.

What sets Entrust apart from other Christian organizations? We've outlined three key principles that inspire our approach to leadership training. These distinctive are "Locally-driven," "Learner-driven," and "Lifestyle-driven."

Locally-driven. Entrust begins by assessing, “What kind of training might leaders readily utilize and multiply in this context? How can we supply that sort of leadership training to those?” Then, in collaboration with local Christian leaders, we develop locally sustainable and reproducible training systems. We design our training to be accessible, relevant and readily multiplied in any location.

Learner-driven. Entrust begins by asking, “What does the learner already know? And, what does each unique ministry context require a learner to know?” Then, in collaboration with local Christian leaders, we assist in equipping the learner with biblical skills and understanding not readily available in that context. We design our training to build on the learner’s current knowledge to promote ongoing equipping for biblical ministry.

Lifestyle-driven. Entrust begins by discovering, “What are the challenges of living a life for Christ in this culture? What does it look like to be a transformed disciple of Jesus here?” Then, in collaboration with local Christian leaders, we develop training materials and mentoring opportunities to build up obedient followers of Christ. We design our training with the goal of personal, church and community transformation.

Our core methods include contextualization, mentoring, employing current understanding of best practices in adult learning in all of our training, and crafting and using questions in learning settings.

These leaders are hungry. Hungry for biblical, theological, ministry training and mentoring.

Entrust’s calling is to equip leaders for the local church — equip them to serve well and to equip other leaders with all they learn. Join us in multiplying leaders for the local church in this under-served region of the world. Build a financial support team and come here to serve. It may be one of the most effective and impacting ministry decisions you’ve ever made.

Land and funds are already provided for a building. Our national staff couple are in place to serve alongside you as you come to lay the spiritual groundwork of evangelism and discipleship, to launch this new church and train a new generation of Christian leaders who will plant more churches. Is this setting your heart racing? Get in touch! NOTE: You would need to raise your own financial support, which means you’ll build a committed team of prayer warriors to undergird you.

Entrust Remote (Moldova / US with travel to Moldova)
Oct 07, 2021

Moldova is a small country sandwiched between Ukraine and Romania. Resources are scarce, forcing most pastors to work an additional job in order to earn a minimum income. Consequently, small seminaries cannot keep up with equipping and training needs. Entrust has a long history of training pastors and church leaders in Moldova but we need more help. Step into a ready-made network of pastors that Entrust has been pouring into, as they themselves are beginning to train a new generation of church leaders, many of whom are eager for training. Knowledge of Russian or Romanian languages is a plus but not necessary. Options to live in-country or travel here several times a year. Raise support and join us!

A place where Christians often suffer for their faith. Maybe it’s time to share the wealth! Consider joining Entrust as an itinerant pastor trainer in the Middle East. We visit regularly, offering training in various aspects of theology and ministry. We build relationships, we track with these people, we encourage them even as they encourage us. Come with us!
