“The Thrive network of pastors does for isolated pastors what no other denomination or association is doing in the southern Philippines.”
— Paul Penley, Excellence in Giving Report 2017
Strengthening churches through world-class training and relationships
Pastors live and serve in the communities they are passionate about, and are often as poor as those they serve. Nearly 50% of pastors in the ICM Thrive Network receive a weekly offering of US$11 or less.
We support thousands of pastors every month with mentoring, accountability, bible study and prayer, as well as leadership and church management training.
Second Day Training Project
In response to requests for deeper ministry training, the Second Day Theological Training Project was launched. ICM is partnering with six respected seminary training organizations to deliver two-year ministry training courses designed to build healthy pastors, healthy churches and healthy communities.
A diverse network
As we seek to serve our participants and pastors more effectively, our research team helps us to develop a better understanding of the thousands of pastors that make up our network.
More than 50% of pastors receive a weekly offering of US$11 or less. This includes any salary for the pastor. 69% have a congregation size of 50 people or less.
