With your help, Langham trains pastors around the world to preach and teach the Bible, equipping them to biblically shepherd their churches.
How it Works
Regional Pastor Training
With your help, a pastor travels to an annual one-week long Langham training seminar with other pastors and lay leaders.

Local Preaching Club
Each pastor returns to their community and forms a "Preaching Club" with nearby pastors and lay people, to continue training and support.

Pastors and lay leaders teach the Bible, biblically shepherding local believers to grow in their faith and apply God's word in their context.

Why it is Needed
It is estimated that more than 80% of pastors around the world have little or no biblical training – that's more than 2 million pastors who are not equipped to help believers in their churches to understand and apply God's Word.
“If it is true (as Jesus said quoting from Deuteronomy) that human beings live not on bread alone but on God's Word, it is equally true of churches. Churches live, grow and flourish by the Word of God, and they languish and die without it.” – Langham founder John Stott
Learn how the ministries and lives of Langham-trained pastors have been transformed.
"What has produced such a growth in the church? Without doubt, it's been the preaching of the Word. When the people of this church meet with God's Word, their lives are transformed."
"I’m so grateful for Langham Preaching for training our men, and now they are able to preach and teach the word of God in a way that our people can understand."
"Langham Preaching keeps me on track. The congregation’s taste for sermons can be misleading - the steps of observation help me find treasure in the bible."
"The training of Langham is a great tool to equip preachers to communicate the Word of God in a better way. It helped me a lot in my ministry."
"Langham Preaching really taught me how to get the message from the Scriptures, how to preach the Word according to the Bible."

One Example of Transformation
When God's people hear and apply God's Word, they grow in maturity and mission. Shadrack, a local member of the church below, describes the transformation in their community, "Katani is a new place. The word of God has penetrated the area."
Langham-trained pastor Peter Mwaw, pictured in the middle, began preaching the scriptures and providing biblical, relevant solutions to local issues. Today, the church, Africa Brotherhood Church, is growing in maturity and reaching out as salt and light in their community of Katani.
After hearing messages on Christ’s love, the church began reaching out to the many orphans in their community and bringing them into their families. “He has taught us about love.” Joseph, church member
