Global discipleship for a changing world

LEADERSHIP - We focus our support on mission leaders, creating new opportunities for them to connect, learn and grow in leadership.

Most of our work within the Faith2Share network is with Christian leaders with a focus on mission and collaboration. We do this with several objectives and through a range of interventions. The Faith2Share network is intrinsically relational and our focus is on the missional maturity of leaders and the impact of their ministries.

We work directly with over 600 leaders from five continents. Each leader acts as a ‘gateway of influence’, often having more than 20 other leaders reporting to them, alongside the oversight and responsibility for hundreds of mission workers. Faith2Share’s ability to strengthen and influence a large number leaders and mission practitioners is significant.

“The leaders of our mission agencies need to be empowered not only with theological studies but also with managerial training for outstanding output in missions.”

Plamthodathil S Jacob, Leadership and Mission, Ed. Mark Laing, 2004

Faith2Share builds leaders for three key outcomes:

  • To help them lead disciple-making movements where children, women and men learn to follow Jesus in every aspect of their lives.
  • To help them build effective collaborations in mission as they establish trust and respect with other leaders in their own locations as well as internationally.
  • To help them recognise when God is doing a new thing, when He is raising up new and emerging mission movements, and to know how and when to come alongside and strengthen these new movements (seeking to foster inter-dependency and mutuality).

  • “Leadership development is at the heart of Christian mission. Leaders emerge from the inner and outward workings of any successful organisation or movement. The missionary movement is no exception. Development of potential new leaders has been the goal and expression of the Christian mission from its inception.”

    Dr Roger E Hedlund, Forward in Leadership and Mission, Ed. Mark Laing, 2004.

    As the Anglican Communion seeks to deepen its collaboration in global mission, I welcome its close links with the Faith2Share Network, which remains an important initiative in bringing together partners from across the world who seek to participate in God’s mission today.

    Latin America largest Christian continent

    2014 was the year when Latin America became the largest Christian continent, passing Europe (including Russia) for the first time.* However, Africa is predicted to take first place and by 2050 Asia will also have overtaken Europe.This means that in 2017 65% of the Christian family lives in the "Global South" and by 2050 this will rise to 76%. This statistic underlines very clearly the vital importance of the work we are engaged in through the Faith2Share network to strengthen...
