The larger project

In June 2016, more than 2,500 trainers of pastors from 101 countries attended the historic Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers—a connecting, resourcing and planning event focused solely on training pastors.

The GProCongress launched a four-year follow-up project called the Global Proclamation Commission for Trainers of Pastors, which seeks to connect, unite and strengthen trainers of pastors and to collect, in statistical form and for strategic purposes, the number of pastors being trained by various pastoral training initiatives worldwide. It is our intent to use this collected data to provide wisdom for future training efforts. GProLearning is just one project of the GProCommission for Trainers of Pastors. Other projects and the fruit God has provided so far are outlined below.
