In January, World Outreach International Leadership Development Director Bruce Hills travelled to the northeast Indian state of Assam, to conduct a three day training seminar with 60 key leaders from a Church Planting Movement (CPM). Bruce, whose role with World Outreach is to facilitate the training and development of pastors and leaders, provided photos of the event and writes:
‘The northeast of India is the region wedged between Bangladesh to the west, Myanmar (Burma) to the east and China to the north. The northeast is a very different ‘India’ than the plains. The people look, dress and eat very differently.
‘World Outreach partners with a CPM in three states [in NE India] There has been a prolific explosion and axpansion of house churches throughout the northeast.
‘Over three solid days, Pastor Jonathan Oastler and I taught 60 significant leaders. These 60 pastors and leaders oversee 50,000 people. The impact of our time is far reaching. We covered areas such as “Preaching, Creative Thinking and Strategic Planning” among many other topics to help develop them and their networks. It was a special time.’
