Contemporary Christian WMIT (106.9 THE LIGHT)/BLACK MOUNTAIN, NC raised $140,336 yesterday (2/8) in support of EQUIP MINISTRIES' "Million Leader Mandate,” as part of its weeklong "What's Up? On-Air Missions Conference.”
The "Million Leader Mandate" has the goal of training a million Christian leaders around the world. The focus of the current effort is training leaders in NORTH KOREA and VIETNAM.
After 12 hours on the air, 1,087 listeners supported the training of 5,613 Christian leaders. Each leader commits to training 25 more leaders, raising the total number to 145,938 Christian leaders to be trained in these oppressed nations.
"For just $25, a leader is trained for three years; that leader in turn trains 25 more, who in turn train 25 more," said GM JIM KIRKLAND. “The gifts provided by 106.9 THE LIGHT’s listeners provide nine times the base number of church leaders presently in two of the most oppressed countries on Earth."
