Who are Equipping Pastors Worldwide?

Equipping Pastors Worldwide supports majority world pastors who long to be faithful in serving the Lord Jesus Christ, but who are lacking the training and resources to do so. The organisation was born from a merger of the Pastor Training International and Christian Books Worldwide charities. Over the last 15 years, these charities have been privileged to serve thousands of pastors in regions where the church has grown hugely but where there is great material need.

The focus of Equipping Pastors Worldwide remains on providing quality training for pastors in expository preaching and providing free books to under-resourced pastors throughout the majority world. Over the years, we have also translated books into more than 41 languages, extending the reach of this important work to non-English speakers. Recently, we have sought to concentrate on establishing hubs in selected locations, working with trusted partners to train local trainers for the future and to more effectively manage our book distribution work.
