Church details Overseas pastors

Most of these men receive full personal support from the Tabernacle, together with support for all the listed branches of ministry. Most had training or pastoral refresher courses at the Tabernacle’s London Reformed Baptist Seminary (LRBS). Seven also operate training programmes for pastors (in every case being the only doctrines-of-grace course in the region). Eight are also engaged in literature translation.
