On April 6, 2019, IGSL commissioned 59 graduates who will be serving strategically in the church, government, education, business, and cross-cultural missions in 10 countries in South and Southeast Asia. These graduates joined 1,210 IGSL alumni serving and leading in more than 40 countries around the world.
Former IGSL Executive Director and alumnus Dr. Jim Whelchel, this year’s commencement speaker, challenged batch 2019 to pursue God’s dream. Drawing from his years in the ministry, Dr. Whelchel shared how God humbled him through “delays” and redirection. Today he continues to work on the fruits of a God-given vision: thousands of small groups and house churches planted in different countries by equipping local pastors and church leaders who could not go to Bible school or seminary.
Here are highlights from graduates on their IGSL journey:
