    Leadership Resources

    Home » Community Outreach & Support » Global Initiatives » Leadership Resources » Leadership Resources

    Around the world, the Church has grown so quickly that the training of pastors hasn’t kept pace. So many pastors feel unequipped and inadequate for the task of leading and caring for their flocks. Most of these pastors will never go to Bible school or seminary. So Leadership Resources brings it to them—the most essential training that they need. LRI trainers seek to humbly bring God’s heart and to see Him develop within each pastor the heart of a shepherd, formed by a biblical understanding of ministry.Throughout Asia, Africa, and the Americas, Leadership Resources equips small groups of national pastors to teach God's Word with the heart of a shepherd. LRI works closely with the same group of pastors for about 2 weeks per year over 4 years, allowing deep friendships to form.

    FCC supports:
    -Pastor Joe Paglia and his wife Amy (  in their work with LRI. When not traveling to Africa, Joe works in administration and training at the Palos Heights LRI office.
    -Phil and Jessica Smith, who works with Joe Paglia at the Palos Heights LRI office.
