Cultivating Theological Leaders for the Global Church.

Global theological leaders are Christian scholars who train local leaders, captain theological schools, speak out as public and prophetic voices, and launch new missional initiatives.

Spotlight

In 1983, inspired by British pastor and author, John Stott, three theologians from North America — Steve Hayner, Mark Labberton, and Tom Cooper — established the Christian International Scholarship Foundation to serve the global church in leadership development in the Majority World. Today this work is known as Scholar Leaders. The “spotlight” section of our homepage will feature the innovative work of theological leaders from our fellowship.
