Training, Equipping, and Discipling Leaders
For over thirty years International Christian Ministries (ICM) has responded to God’s call to train, equip and disciple Christ-centered leaders. The result are astounding – over 2 million leaders have been impacted through the following ICM initiatives.
Christian Leadership Institute
The Christian Leadership Institute was launched to help pastors develop skills to be effective disciplers in their churches. Through key partnerships with organizations like Walk Thru the Bible, Equip, Willow Creek, and Purpose Driven Ministries, ICM provides critically needed training and in-service learning opportunities for millions of leaders who have then used their training to reach others in their communities.

Africa Theological Seminary
In 1990 pastors began to ask ICM to launch a specialized formal training program that would allow them to stay in the ministry while gaining the high-level knowledge and skills that come from a seminary education. In 1992, ICM responded to this request by launching Africa Theological Seminary (ATS) in Kitale, Kenya. The strategic program of study at ATS allows pastors to attend seminary without leaving their ministries. By spending time on campus three times each year, participating in classes as a part of a learning community, pastors take back to their churches skills and knowledge that has immediate application. As a result, these stay active in ministry as they take on skills to enhance and expand their ministries. The seminary now has campuses in six countries and is regionally accredited. LEARN MORE>>
Discipling Marketplace Leaders
In many parts of the world, churches have moved from being a powerful spiritual force of transformation in their communities to being simply a series of programs meeting in their buildings. ICM’s Discipling Marketplace Leaders (DML) initiative shifts the emphasis from programs to people. It empowers pastors to equip their members to live and be the Church each day of the week throughout their communities. This vital ICM program is launching local churches into marketplace ministry, by discipling every member to be a marketplace ambassador. These ambassadors take the equipping from the four walls of the church to fill every corner of the community. LEARN MORE>>
