Online Ministry Training

Chris Davis teaching an online ministry training

 We have discovered many ministry leaders globally do not have the resources or time to attend face-to-face training. This development of online ministry training overcomes the problems of: 

  • the cost of transportation for the trainers and the participants,
  • housing and meal expenses, and
  • loss of wages due to time away from their full-time employment

And online ministry training has the added benefits of: 

  • flexibility to learn and apply pieces of training when available (We have discovered retention and implementation of training increases in online training environments because leaders can take their time),
  • spreading out training in bite-size chunks for better learning,
  • immediate on-the-ground implementation, and
  • enabling cross-cultural learning and missional community beyond borders by allowing participants from various countries to collaborate

We will continue to develop these ministry trainings and seminars to provide greater accessibility to leaders around the world. Explore the tabs below to learn more about these option.

If you are interested in any future iterations of these trainings, please use the Contact Us Form or send us a message on our Facebook page.


Learn Biblical ministry principles that are proven to be always transferable across all cultures and in all ages. Practical, transcultural examples are used to inspire to implementation of the principles. Time is also set aside for the seminar participants to put their ideas and plans into writing. This enables leaders to have a strategic plan for one entire year of ministry.

Our goal is to develop an entire group of Christian youth leaders and create a team of trainers within their existing structure so multiplication of youth leadership can occur with local trainers and input.

You can expect to be completing about 3 hours of work per week at your own pace. There are no class times or meetings. Classwork only includes watching the posted lecture videos and then thoughtfully responding to the assignments.

The week’s sessions appear on the Tuesday of every week. Participants will be required to watch the provided videos and complete assignments to apply the learning. Weekly sessions are designed to be about 3 hours of work, and they are “due” on the following Monday. Assignments will remain open after the due date but will not be counted toward the final grade/accepted for credit if more than a week late.

There are six weeks, and upon adequate, quality completion, you will receive a globalLead Youth Ministry Certificate, have a personalized take-home plan for your ministry, and be eligible for our Level 2 Ministry Training.

Info Sheet


globalLead’s online Ministry Team Strategy training is currently in the development stage.

The in-person curriculum is being converted to an online cross-cultural and flexible engagement platform. The format/expectations will be very similar to our Youth Ministry training.

Thank you for your patience.

globalLead’s online Heart of The Leader seminars are currently in the development stage.


We do, however, offer hybrid HotL trainings in some locations. Our staff and teams have begun to use an approach where we meet ahead of and after a retreat for multiple online sessions with participants, and we will meet for 3 to 4 days face-to-face.


The Great Commission

The Great Commission is impossible… from a human point of view.

Join us on January 17th, 2024 to hear from Pastor Steven Tumbaga. He will be speaking on the Great Commission, God’s perspective on it, and what we are called to do as a result of it. Come and be reminded this mission is primarily about and done by the Great King. Learn His commands for every believer and how you can effectively participate.

Every believer must get this right!

Essentials of Multiplication

What does it mean to multiply? And how do you do it?

Rev. Macky Sabayle will be sharing essential principles of multiplication based on 2 Timothy 2:2-7…

“…What you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also. 3 Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him. 5 An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. 6 It is the hard-working farmer who ought to have the first share of the crops. 7 Think over what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything.”

Transforming Bible Study

Information or Transformation?

For the spiritual growth of a believer, the study of God’s Word is essential and must come first. However, too often, we do not know where to start or how to study Scripture for character transformation instead of merely more information. In truth, a transforming Bible study is more perspiration than inspiration, more work than magic. The effort of studying a passage makes it possible for the Holy Spirit to speak to us and through us in our Bible studies. In this micro-training, Pastor Lanz will deal with some Biblical principles that Christ Himself used to bring about spiritual transformation in His hearers.
