Leadership Training:

Group picture of Leadership Training groupIt has been said, to enrich a country, you must impact its leaders. It is our desire to do just that. Those leaders will effectively and efficiently spread the word of God to their own people. Oasis Leadership Institute is the leadership arm of OSI that has had tremendous success and impact on Egypt, the Arab world, and Mexico. Training 230 pastors and leaders at four to six seminars a year enables us to annually impact between 1000 to 1500 national pastors and leaders. Pastors and leaders who participate come from a wide range of denominations and church backgrounds.


Taking notes during trainingThe ministry of Operation Serve® International is inter-denominational in nature where the participants in our training seminars come from a wide range of denominations, and church backgrounds. The gathering of those theologically diverse pastors and leaders strengthens the work of the Lord and brings unity to the body. We aim to serve the national leaders through training, teaching, uniting their efforts for the cause of the Gospel.
