Training Timothys

One of the biggest challenges in the Vietnamese church is training and equipping leaders. The communist government has typically restricted the church’s ability to train pastors, especially those from rural areas. In recent years in northern Vietnam, Christian churches have had more freedom to educate leaders in seminaries and send teachers to provinces to train pastors.

Pray for more rural pastors and leaders to have the opportunity to be trained and equipped and to reach out to the communities around them with the gospel.

Pray for the Vietnamese church to have favor with government leaders and be allowed to continue training leaders and growing the church.


Throughout the month of May 2015, we are asking individuals, families, groups of friends, small groups, and churches to join with us and commit to pray for the peoples of Vietnam. We will be posting stories and sharing ways to pray daily through the blog, Facebook, and Twitter. You can also download a prayer guide and other resources here.
