World Zone Leaders

The Vision International Education and Training Network has divided the world into Zones. Each Zone is represented by a Zone Leader who is working to strategically raise up national leadership for expanding the Vision Network. By the hundreds, Bible Colleges are being started, leaders are being trained, and churches are being planted all over the World.

Indigenous Mission

Vision International Training & Education Network is thoroughly committed to indigenous missionary endeavors. ITEN places a high level of respect on the local culture and customs of our partners around the world, allowing them to translate, contextualize, and adapt the curriculum to suit their own needs in their immediate ministry environment.

The two major themes turning heads in the missions community are the integration of Church Planting and Leadership Training. A problem exists, however, in a lack of integration of these two major streams of mission. Church planting ministries are desperate for trained workers and Leadership Training Ministries are looking for places for their graduates to minster. Through a Strategic Partnership between VITEN and churches, programs are established worldwide.

VITEN Networks focus on local church based education and positions itself to help bring integration between leadership training and church planting. The vision for church planting comes from hundreds of strong local churches VITEN partners with, and who have a compatible vision to plant churches. Through VITEN, church planters can be trained in their local setting. By working together we can see churches planted around the world
