2016-2017 ANNUAL REPORT
Thank you for being faithful to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matt. 28:19).
Recently, we finished reading the book, Gospel Patrons: People Whose Generosity Changed the World. The title intrigued us, and it took reading only 11 pages to realize author John Rinehart’s words perfectly describe those who partner with the International Leadership Institute to accelerate the spread of the Gospel.
Rinehart explains that behind every great movement of God stands generous men and women who both pray and fund the spread of the Gospel. He even coined a new noun, “Gospel patrons.”
Gospel patrons, noun. 1. People who resource and come alongside others to help them proclaim the Gospel.
Your generosity resulted in a 28% growth from last year in the number of leaders trained and mobilized. Nine nations held their first ILI training event, including Iraq, Jordan, Macedonia, Finland, Georgia, Israel/Palestine, Lesotho, Senegal, and France. Almost 30,000 men and women graduated, and the total number of ILI alumni now stands at more than 200,000!
As we look to the future, we envision a movement of Christians who are marked by radical generosity and risk-taking action to see more lives changed, more souls saved, and more people sent around the world to reach the unreached.
We invite you to download ILI's 2016-2017 Annual Report. Whether you provided financial support, prayer, equipped leaders, or led an ILI Team, we worked to insure maximum kingdom impact.
Thank you for equipping leaders and accelerating the spread of the Gospel around the world.
