We have a passion for training church leaders in the
developing world, and it is our firm belief that this is best
achieved through investing in local institutions. By training
Christian leaders, we can have a positive impact on the church for
generations to come; and in resourcing local theological schools,
we leave a sustainable legacy.
reSource Leadership International exists to foster excellence in theological schools in the developing world - giving them the resources they need to offer the best education - thereby ensuring a high standard of teaching and lay training in the local church.
The theme of this year's Institute is Unconventional Models for Theological Education. It will build upon learning about innovative educational models at nine Overseas Council partner schools. Through this learning, the Institute will become a catalyst for "reflection in action" among educational leaders and multiply the influence of our 130 partner schools. The participants will work to see how their school can implement new models for theological education, so that the churches in their context will have a greater impact through leaders trained for ministry in a more contextualized manner.
The Inter-institutional Christian Repository (REPCI) is a virtual space to spread the intellectual and original production of Latin American and Caribbean Christian authors. REPCI is intended to provide a common space for researchers, teachers and students of Latin American and Caribbean theological institutions to share their publications. REPCI will be an open or low-cost tool to access this shared space.
The REPCI project will be coordinated jointly by Mariel Voth, the Latin American Library Consultant for reSource Leadership International, and by the librarian of the Biblical Seminary of Colombia (FUSBC) in Medellin, Colombia.
The Greek Bible College (GBC) is the only evangelical theological school in the country and its library serves the students and faculty of the college, as well as students and faculty from the nearby Orthodox Seminary. The college recently recieved the gift of an extensive personal library from a retired Cambridge Biblical scholar that has greatly strengthened the collection. The gift also presents some challenges that reSource has committed to helping with. These challenges include the need for assistant staff to process the new materials, barcoding of the entire library collection, and the purchase and installation of new library software.
