Studio of Innovative Leadership

Moldova, Republic of

The Studio of Innovative Leadership (SIL) is an open platform to equip a new generation of vibrant Christian leaders in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. The ultimate goal of the program is to reshape culture and produce long-term transformation through the development of relevant and innovative ministries. The program identifies visionary Christian leaders and launches them as catalysts in society. There are currently 116 students in the program. Around 50 % of SIL students are in full-time ministry and 80-85% are active ministers in their churches. Their initiative to impact their societies for the gospel span from church-based to ministry enterprise, to social and business enterprise. It is exciting to see SIL leaders creating inroads for the gospel in secular and Muslim contexts and among least reached peoples in a number of restricted access countries.

Update on the Studio of Innovative Leadership

In January there were lots of plans for the Studio. A couple of trainings had been organized before the global pandemic hit our country early in March. The government declared a national lockdown and all of the activities ceased or became significantly limited. All of our meetings indoors for the safety of participants and the team were cancelled. Although it was not possible to meet physically with the students during the lockdown, the SIL team decided to continue teaching using alternative methods, mostly on internet platforms. There were three online sessions out of nine training sessions. Also during the lockdown period together we put together regular live streaming programs and interviews. 

In May we carried out an online graduation ceremony and celebrated  15 young leaders who completed the three-year training program.
