Hear our Langham Scholars International Director share his vision for this strategic ministry

Riad KassisDr Riad Kassis believes our Langham Scholars ministry must serve the Church … is for the sake of the Church.
The greatest need nowadays, he says, is for leaders who are able to lead their churches and societies, and be great agents of change in their cultures.
“Will you work together with us to fulfil this vision to produce these teachers and leaders for our churches and societies?”

For your prayers
  • Pray for Chris Wright as he speaks at Katoomba Men's Convention, that he will know God's enabling and that all who attend will be challenged and encouraged.  Likewise for the other meetings and church services in Sydney and Canberra.
  • Pray for Paul Windsor and the Pacific Preaching Consultation in Brisbane, that those who attend will know God's leading and wisdom as they plan for the future of the Langham Preaching work in the Pacific.
  • One of the most important strategies for helping pastors and preachers to develop their training and to encourage one another is the strengthening of preachers clubs – the small groups which seek to meet every month (and sometimes more frequently). Please pray for the hundreds of people who are part of local groups, that they will be encouraged to keep going in the year ahead, and will find the groups to be a significant resource for their ministry.
  • Pray for our Langham Scholars in Australia - Ronald Lal Din Suah from Myanmar and Qaiser Julius from Pakistan - that their work towards their PhDs will continue to progress well. Please pray also for their families - that they will continue to know God's blessing and provision.
  • Pray for the work of Langham Literature across the world. Give thanks for the publication in Russian of the book "He Began with Moses: Preaching the Old Testament Today" and pray that this will be a blessing to the Church in Russia.
  • Please pray for Christian brothers and sisters in Egypt and Syria at this time, especially for those involved with the Arabic Bible Commentary. It is not easy to write with conflict on your door-step.
  • Praise God that we are able to offer our member theological colleges and seminaries the Library Grant this year, which enables them to obtain titles for students and faculty. Please pray for the safe arrival of the books, which are so appreciated by those who receive them.
