Langham equips Christian leaders from around the world to receive their PhDs in Bible and theology and then serve the church in their nations.

How it Works



We fund scholarships and shepherd these leaders through their PhD studies in Bible and theology.


Scholars biblically train and disciple future pastors and Christian leaders in their nations.


Christian leaders start new ministries and churches, equipped to make disciples.
