Innovista means to exact a positive change.
Innovista is a charity that identifies, supports and develops Christian leaders in challenging contexts. We do not send people to serve in other countries, but we support local leaders who are called to mission in their communities.
Innovista has team members in the UK, Ireland, Ukraine, Moldova and two Central Asia republics. It has National Directors, trainers and leaders in the respective countries, and is also connected with a wider global network of Christian trainers. Innovista International, which is based in the UK, provides support for the global team and has a Board of Trustees. Innovista Ireland, Moldova and Ukraine are registered charities in their own countries with their own Board of Trustees. You can read more about the team here or the Annual Reports here.
Innovista is a charity that focuses on identifying, supporting and developing Christian leaders, so everything it does centres around a theology of mission. If you want to read more about that, you can see our recommended reading lists on both leadership and mission. Our training is specifically designed for Christians and it draws from biblical insight and secular leadership resources.
Innovista’s leadership training has been shaped by over two decades of mission work in challenging contexts. It draws upon the experience of local Christian leaders working in under-resourced and hard-to-reach areas. We offer different types of training for both established and emerging leaders, including workshops, courses and mentoring/coaching.
Innovista offers a range of different training opportunities for both established and emerging leaders, including workshops, courses and mentoring/coaching. There are different options in different locations, as well as online training. Explore more on our For Leaders page.
