Leaders are God’s gift to his church (Eph 4:8–12), shepherds to care for his saints (1 Peter 5:1–5, Acts 20:28, Heb 13:17). Leaders are vital to the growth and nourishment of the church (Eph 4:12–13), as they build up and protect God’s flock (Titus 1:9). Similar to the reality that many Christians have not been discipled, many Christians have been given leadership roles without being biblically qualified (1 Tim 3:1–7), which means many Christians have been left without biblical leaders to guide them. One of the greatest needs in unreached locations is that new indigenous leaders are raised up and multiplied to serve, protect, and sustain local churches. Urgent supports ministries that are committed to raising up and deploying new indigenous leaders to serve the church in unreached and underserved areas.
