1,000 current and aspiring Trainers of Pastors (1/2 under 50 years of age) from nonformal, formal, and informal training sectors.
GProCongress II is a transformative event for trainers of pastors built on the momentum of GProCongress I (2016).
Some pastors with seminary education look down on others who are called to do ministry without formal training. We have a big responsibility towards those needy pastors...We thank the GProCommission for opening our eyes.
I have been honored to reinforce my ministry calling as a pastor trainer to envision the next level and season of ministry. Hearing the information about the [pastor training] industry has been a big part of my assessment of ministry effectiveness. It is of most importance, as well, to find spiritual resources related to pastoral growth to connect all my peers who are leading biblically and preaching biblically.
The GProCongress was a huge shift for the ministry. I went from focusing on training pastors to focusing on training more trainers. Because of this, the number of pastors we have trained has tripled since the GProCongress.
"In 2021, the GProCommission produced a Global Integrated Report:
Initiatives and Activities in the Training of Pastors Worldwide, 2016-2020,"
documenting the follow-up from GProCongress I.
