At first, I thought of BILD—The Biblical Institute for Leadership Development—simply as a source of leadership development tools. Their Antioch School was unlike anything I’d come across and a few of our members were excited to have the opportunity to study at such a high level and earn an accredited degree through our church while they served in our church.
But as I became more and more familiar with BILD, I was exposed to a big vision. Jeff Reed and his team were helping leaders in more than 40 countries train up more leaders in such a way that church planting ministries were thriving in places where the gospel had never penetrated before.
They had developed The First Principles Series of Bible studies which are being used by leaders in more than 40 countries. This unique tool is designed to raise up grassroots leaders by giving disciples a firm foundation in the teaching of Christ and His Apostles.
The more I interacted with and learned from the BILD team, the more I realized they are like the sons of Issachar (1 Chronicles 12:32): Men who understand the times and know what needs to be done. Through my interactions with the team at BILD—and their excellent resources—I began to understand what needs to change in America.
