Help us Train Leaders in Nicaragua?
Training and empowering community leaders to lead more effectively can have a massive and positive impact on the people they lead. Whole communities benefit - and that’s why at Links International we passionately believe it is worth investing our time, resources and finances to do this with excellence. We hope you can help us.
The reality is that Pastors, ministry leaders, and community leaders often don’t have access to education or leadership resources to help them grow in character, spiritual maturity, effectiveness, and productivity. I use a variety of training material based on the needs of our partners. Next week I have the privilege of facilitating a 7 Habits of Highly Effective People seminar for 30 leaders in Nicaragua in addition to the 5 Voices of Leadership. I (of course) weave the Gospel into these resources and additionally provide one-on-one coaching to all the participants. It’s going to be a great experience!
Franklin Covey has offered to give us an extremely discounted rate on their official materials which are usually more than $200 per packet. Additionally, we are adding supplemental training videos that have been translated into Spanish. All in, we are able to provide a thorough and professional training experience for about $85 per participant (our travel expenses are separate).
I would like to ask if you could possibly sponsor one (or more) of the leaders to receive the training. As I have already said, this investment will have an impact that goes way beyond the individuals, as each of them is on the front lines of confronting poverty through sustainable faith-based initiatives that are helping the poor rise out of poverty. A full $85 sponsorship is great. More than one is amazing, but any amount is helpful and significant.
Since we first sent word out about this trip, we have some BREAKING NEWS! We have had a generous offer to match any donations that come in for this training. That means your donation will have twice the impact with Nicaraguan leaders.
Thank you to those who have already invested! For those who still want to participate financially, you can donate using our secure online giving or by mailing a check. Thank you for your ongoing love, support, and prayers for us and the work of Links. We couldn't do it without you!
For the Kingdom,
