Crosslinks works in many countries where there is often little or no trained leadership in the churches. For example, in one Kenyan region the size of England, there are 10 active parishes, each with many congregations, and only 10 clergy and 2 evangelists.
Situations like this leave many churches without consistent Bible teaching, discipleship and evangelism, and there is very little opportunity and resource available within parishes and Dioceses to make any difference.
BEST provided us the financial resources that we didn’t have to have a privileged theological training. It provided for us a gospel friendship and partnership with a Mission-minded, gospel-centered institution like Crosslinks that remains until today.
