our mission:


We help discover and equip international leaders for transformational ministry in global cities.

There is nothing that delights my heart more than to see people of every tribe, tongue, and nation worshiping King Jesus on earth, as it is in heaven.

our vision

For international leaders and partners to work together to bring the transforming power of the Kingdom of God in multicultural communities around the world.


our story

The International Leadership Coalition was birthed out of a recognized need occurring in the “backyard” of our own home. Over the past few decades, Tennessee has become home for over 600,000 internationals from all over the world, many of whom have resettled in Middle Tennessee as either refugees seeking asylum or immigrants seizing school or business opportunities. This number is soon to reach 1 million by the year 2040 with the same diversity increasing in many states all across the United States. In a world where millions have been and are currently being displaced, persecuted and oppressed, the ILC seeks to see communities transformed by the power of the Kingdom of God by discovering and equipping leaders to be conduits of transformation in global cities. Through the power of the gospel, value and dignity can be restored to the thousands impacted by loss. We believe leaders pave by serving as life transforming agents in partnership with the local church. Our international communities have a sure future by seizing opportunities for the next generation.

our residency leadership training program

The Leadership Residency Training Program is a 15-month leadership development program that discovers leaders, both international and American, with a call for international ministry and equips them for transformational ministry to people groups around the world. Residents learn how to revitalize their ministries, build intentional community with each other in partnership with the local Church, receive personal mentoring and strategize about ministry multiplication. Residents are further equipped as ministers, ministries are enriched, and the mission is empowered — all unto seeing the gospel go forth around the world.
