I attended ILI training first at Caren in Nairobi the Kenya biggest city , its 185km from my home city Kitui. This conference had been organised by Margaret Stephen , Gordon's and Dr Florence. Goal setting , integrity, mobilization and intimacy with God touched me. I then organised and mobilised the pastors working under me 15 pastors and deacons from the church I minister got trained. Next I attended a Regional conference organised by phyilis where I met friends from all over Kenya ,others from Uganda and US. Then the same training was detailedly fought and I learned a great deal . I organised a second trading for all the overseers and Bishops from my city. 14 attended. I'm organising another conference for churches .I'm purposing to have a 40-50 delegates conference in early 2019! Thank you so much ILI team. Keep moving and lift me more and others too. My people need this so Much . invest more in us and use us to change history in this generation, by Bsp Dr sskiema
My name is Shankar Shikdar. I am from a very traditional Hindu family. In 1990 I had a great kidney problem and severe pain in my abdomen and admitted into Memorial Christian Hospital, Cox’s Bazar. The doctor gave me 2 options: the first option was to do the operation but no certainty and the second option was to pray to God only. I and my brother choose the second option. The Doctor and my brother prayed for me and our family. I then submitted myself to Christ at that moment and it was on April 16, 1990. After 4 days I was completely well and returned home. The Doctor was amazed to see my unexpected healings. A great miracle happened in my life. A great joy fulfilled my heart. I thought I returned home as a new man. I started going to church regularly. After 2 years, I and my 2 younger sisters were baptized on the same day by Pastor Anup Dio. It was on September 11, 1992. Since then we are no longer the follower of Satan, we become a member of the royal family where Jesus Christ is the King of all kings. 1981 to 1992 long 12 years I had to fight with my mind to come out from the traditional Hindu Society.
It was the 9th of November 1999: my old father accepted Lord Jesus Christ as his personal savior. And after 6 months my mother received Christ. How great victory is that all the members of a family get redeemed from sin! A great learning from here is that great crisis is the way to enjoy the great victory! It was the result of our long prayer.
Presently our parents are enjoying in Heaven with God. God has given us all strength to with the rest souls or the community. Now we have a church in the middle of the Hindu community. In addition, we have formal children school, music ministry to teach church worship team some more ministries to glorify God.
Kindly pray for us and our ministry

When I first attended ILI classes back in Mombasa, Kenya, it was by coincident God was calling me into the teaching ministry and I was compiling the relevant materials for the beginners class. My target was to reach out to the unschooled pastors and church leaders. I organized two the training in our church and later with a group of local pastors at Likoni sub County and since that time I have continued to teach the 8 cores values of leadership character to church leaders. This training revolutionized my leadership and ability and sharpened my passion for Christ and ministry. I know i was to attend the next level of training which i would like to attend if given the opportunity. May the Lord bless you for the good work
I am proud to support ILI’s work in multiplying and facilitating the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. ILI trains pastors and lay leadership worldwide equipping them to spread the the message of salvation, then challenges them to host training on both local and national levels, thus multiplying their efforts. This format allows local customs and methods of communication, interaction, and understanding to provide the most inspirational experiences to motivate Individuals.
ILI has benefited may leaders in Indonesia. Many leaders work very hard and need to develop their leadership capacity so they can enhance their ministries and build up more leaders. And ILI has made it possible.
ILI completely changed my paradigm for missions as I saw firsthand the viability of all believers becoming equipped to share the gospel in a transformational way. Now having put this into practice over nearly a decade, I can attest to the efficacy of practicing and teaching the Eight Core Values of our Christian faith around the world.
International Leadership Institute (ILI) is a wonderful organization that trains Christian leaders around the world. The impact of this training is almost immeasurable as these leaders return to their cities and villages and share this training with many so that the Gospel is multiplied many times over. Countless lives have been forever changed because of the efforts of ILI workers all over the world. I am a proud father as my daughter is the Creative Director for ILI.
My life and career has been positively transformed. I attended the ILI National Training in the year 2011 at Mariapolis Centre in Nairobi, Kenya. Since then I have trained, together with others, more than 2,000 leaders, I have had personal life transformation experience in family, finances and ministry. I have set goals and objectives that are SMART and have realized 50% of the Long-term goals achieved.
Many Leaders in Kenya have found ILI to be a practical Training that has great impacts on the individual Leaders as well as those that they are leading.
The photo below shows how a Member of county Assembly, a Lecturer and some great Leaders of Machakos County in Kenya have embraced the training and mobilised their Leaders to participate.
I am Greatly blessed to be part of ILI team in south Asia.
I am excited to be involved in the work of ILI because ILI is committed to the fulfillment of the Great Commission. It is an organization in which prayer is foundational, and the training is thoroughly Biblical. ILI is committed to equipping indigenous leaders in countries and cultures throughout the world, and is especially concerned with ensuring that unreached people groups have the opportunity to hear the message of the Gospel. These are values important to me, as is the willingness of ILI to work in any and every place God gives opportunity. ILI is a ministry that is making a difference.
While searching for an opportunity to train young leaders in Paraguay , I found (was led) to ILI . The material was exactly what I was looking to teach and the opportunity to be a part of the teaching team was a blessing. I have been blessed by this Organization, and have been able to share my faith an teach leadership skills to young leaders in the churches.
ILI is a global organization that is changing history by equipping leaders. I have been privileged to be involved from the very beginning. Twenty years later, ILI is a movement of leaders equipping leaders impacting more than 100 nations with a vision to see leaders equipped in every nation of the world.
I love supporting the International Leadership Institute because I feel a deep sense of connection with their vision and mission. I've been supporting them for the last 10 years and have seen them grow tremendously in that time. They truly pour their hearts into their work, putting the work of spreading the Gospel as their number one priority. I love their honesty and transparency! The results are evident!
