Christian Education

CMC trains pastors and church leaders throughout Cambodia in 11 provinces reaching 1000 churches. We are building a training center(see below)in Siem Reap that will be a much needed addition to the training programs already in place.

National Leaders — Help to train the 60 Regional Leaders

Regional Leaders in the Cambodian Provinces — Help to train the local Pastors and leaders

CMC works with 500 churches and over 300 pastors from provinces in rural Cambodia. This is a multi-evangelical denominational project. Pastors from the rural churches attend monthly training in their region led by regional Cambodian Pastors. The regional leaders are trained quarterly by CMC Cambodia staff.

Because of the training based on 2 Timothy 2:2, Pastors begin to multiply their leadership and not only are more churches planted and built up, but the church is planted for stronger success in reaching their villages.

CMC works diligently to produce new and effective training material and resources for pastors and church leaders. This is a critical part of what CMC does, because almost all of the books were destroyed during the genocide of the 1970’s and the few books that survived are now outdated and not relevant to today’s Cambodian culture.

CMC also provides partial support for pastors in churches where they cannot support a full time pastor.

CMC provides scholarships to students who want to attend the colleges, universities in Cambodia to become the future pastors and leaders of the church in Cambodia.

What can I do?

CMC is unique in its approach to training national leaders.

They use national pastors and leaders to train. While many organizations utilize foreign speakers for training, CMC realized that the language and cultural barriers were too great when it came to effective communication.

The leaders who train in CMC are highly qualified, passionate native Cambodian pastors.

You can help CMC leader training by supporting training financially. For each rural pastor, it costs approximately $1000 per year. You can also support a local Cambodian pastor for ministry at his church.
