Give the Gift of a Theological Library

In many places around the world, pastors lack access to biblical resources to help them cultivate healthy churches full of thriving Christians. What’s more, many church leaders have never received formal training in the Scriptures or theology—and thus easily fall prey to false teaching promoted by dynamic leaders who proclaim a message of health and prosperity rather than the gospel of Jesus Christ.

And yet, this global challenge also stands as a unique opportunity for Christians in the West—an opportunity to work together with believers from around the world to equip under-resourced church leaders with Bibles and doctrinally sound books. That’s why Crossway created the Global Pastors Book Set—a multi-volume collection of resources covering a host of topics crucial to pastoral ministry chosen by church leaders from every major world region aimed at providing pastors with the biblical and theological foundation necessary for a lifetime of ministry faithfulness.

The impact of these book sets has been so significant that Crossway has continued to distribute sets from the Global Ministry Fund to pastors throughout the world. To date, over 6,000 Global Pastors Book Sets—totaling over 90,000 resources—have been distributed to church leaders in over 60 countries, including places like India, Uganda, and South Africa.

“These will be the equivalent of giving a mechanic a toolbox, or a carpenter the tools needed to do their job. A spanner, or a saw in itself can't get the work done. The pastors will have materials they can refer to from time to time, to increase their knowledge and access to orthodox materials. The end result will be sound, accurate, and correct teaching in churches that will lead to transformed lives and church growth. Pastors too will become bolder from the growth of their knowledge. These resources will have a tremendous impact.” —Arnold, Kenya

What Subjects Are Covered in the Set?

Please pray that the Lord will continue to expand partnerships and opportunities to distribute these book sets into the hands of church leaders in need all around the world. Ask that the Lord would give the recipients a deeper understanding of his Word and wisdom for shepherding their churches.

The Foundation for a Healthy Church: The Pastor’s Library

Samuel had never been to Bible school. Just a few years before, he became a Christian. He was still learning about God and working to correct the beliefs instilled in him from his Jehovah’s Witness background. But despite his background, a church asked him to be the pastor.

The Most Effective "Missionary"

William Carey. Hudson Taylor. Adoniram Judson. David Brainerd. Jim and Elisabeth Elliot. This list just begins to name the countless missionaries who have given their lives for the sake of the gospel. How would it be possible to choose the most effective missionary?
