We are often asked who we have on the teaching staff of SOS International. Our response typically is: “Nobody. And Everybody.” Let us explain:
Nobody who trains leaders through SOS International is officially on our full-time faculty. However, we have prescreened a team of capable and experienced trainers, in the US and abroad, who are ready to expand their ministries to international proportions through the invitation of SOS International. These equippers trust us to screen training opportunities yet are not officially “Staff.”
On the other hand, everyone in the leadership corps of The Church is on SOS International Staff! Ephesians 4 identifies those with leadership gifts as those who have responsibility to equip the saints for the work of ministry for the building up of the Body of Christ (4:11-12).
Since we’d all agree the Body of Christ exists on a global platform, the equipping of the saints (in our scenario, indigenous-leadership saints) takes place on the same level – on a global platform. Ergo, every ministry leader capable, experienced and prepared to equip leaders for ministry is on Kingdom Faculty and, therefore, an SOS International Staff Member!
