Supporting Christian leaders where they're needed most

Innovista identifies, equips and develops Christian leaders working in challenging contexts


Inspired by Jesus, we equip leaders to build a better world

Innovista identifies, equips and develops Christian leaders working in challenging contexts. Every year, we train and mentor around 1,500 leaders in Britain, Ireland, Moldova, Ukraine, Central Asia and beyond. We help leaders transform people and communities through churches, ministries and enterprises.

"Without leadership, nothing happens. If we want to see the church grow in difficult places, we should be doing everything we can to train and support local leaders breaking new ground. Innovista lets leaders know they don’t need to do it alone. Because of this ministry, churches and ministries are growing, and lives are being changed with the hope of Jesus."

"Too many young leaders burn out after only a few years in ministry. By providing training at the right time, Innovista are equipping leaders for the long haul. The result is healthy ministries growing in places that need them, and lives are being changed with the gospel."
