Knowing Jesus changes everything
Across Europe, Russia and Central Asia however, millions of people have not yet been given a credible opportunity to find and follow him.
But a generation of passionate new leaders is on the rise, committed to reaching their communities with the gospel.
Their vision is bold, but their training and experience often limited.
That’s why many leaders in places like these feel isolated, under-equipped and overwhelmed.
And that’s where Innovista comes in. From Oxford to Omsk, we identify, equip and develop leaders we believe can catalyse change across their communities.
You can see for yourself here.
Last year Innovista supporters provided training and support for 1,200 leaders – and demand is only growing.
With your support, we can help more leaders in difficult places to reach the people around them with the hope of Jesus.
We work in the least reached and least resourced places. Our local trainers invest in leaders across Ukraine, Siberia and Central Asia where the church is small and the need is great. And just a few steps from our UK base, we mentor young people growing up in disadvantage on three Oxford estates, helping them to realise and release their God-given potential.
We provide high quality, practical training for local leaders who are mostly in their 20s and 30s. These pioneering, purposeful people are already leading something and are best placed to try new ways to reach their communities.
Because without leadership, nothing happens. We know that if we can equip a leader, we can see individual lives – and whole cities – changed by the hope of Jesus.
