Tim Adour is the senior pastor of Church of the Revelation. Tim has a passion for evangelism, reaching the poor, impacting the city (his church is in The Bronx), training leaders and furthering the work of Global Missions. Tim travels several times a year for leadership conferences and seminars, both with LCI and with his denomination - Assemblies of God.
Tim will be teaching a graduate course, Spiritual Leadership, in Asuncion, Paraguay. The group of leaders who are enrolled in the master's programs in Asuncion are an awesome group of leaders. I've been there twice working with them and I am a little envious of Tim going there. While he is there, Tim will be connecting with an old friend of his (Phil) who pastors in Asuncion.
And my good friend and colleague (both at LWCC and via LCI) John Hilliard is headed to Argentina about the same time. John is going to teach a graduate course on Mentoring in Cordoba. He is also going to travel to a missionary training center in another city (Mendoza) and teach on the subject of mentoring.
One of the key methodologies for LCI is training the trainers, or mentoring the mentor. A core part of our vision is to empower leaders to become developers of leaders. Latin America tends to have a more directive and often authoritative leadership model in place. That approach does not easily train, empower, and release others for leadership. We work to help leaders become a new kind of leader.
You can see on each map where Tim and John will be teaching. Just look a little, click on the map for a larger picture to come up.
Please pray for both Tim and John's work of teaching. Pray especially for the work of contextualization that is always taking place as we teach.
They each have connecting flights, so pray for good connections, safe travel, and good health.
Finally, pray they will be an encouragement to wonderful groups of Latin American leaders.
Tim and John - thanks for your partnership in the work of leadership development.
