The Challenge, Our Vision & Strategies

The Challenge

In many places in the world, the church is a mile wide and an inch deep. This lack of discipleship in the ways of God has resulted in broken families, disunified churches struggling with sinful habits, and communities marked by corruption and licentiousness spiraling deeper into hopelessness and pain.

Our Vision

The vision of BELT is to see people groups transformed by the Word of God through empowering community and church leaders who have limited access to Biblical training. Our mission is to partner with mission organizations (primarily Wycliffe Bible Translators) and indigenous churches to develop leaders through culturally relevant Bible training that teaches them to apply the Scriptures to every area of life and equips them to teach and influence others. 2 Tim 2:2

Our Strategies

We seek to fulfill our vision by:
  • Providing holistic Bible training to secluded church and community leaders through various discipleship seminars and resources
  • Supporting the world-wide multiplication of the Bible School for the Nations (BSN) which effectively trains and mobilizes Bible teachers for BELT
  • Equipping trainers through BELT Orientation Seminars so they can disciple others through running BELT seminars in the nations
  • Creating and distributing tools, resources and seminars to be utilized for the transformation of individuals and people groups
  • Establishing BELT operating locations in each continent, able to provide holistic discipleship to those with limited access to it
