The mission of the International Leadership Academies is, “to develop indigenous Christian leaders to build community movements that will assure the continuing fulfillment of the Great Commission in a given area. ILA provides concentrated vocational training for Christian Leaders who will mobilize believers into movements of evangelism and discipleship to reach their communities for Christ.“
The ministry started in Russia in 1993 and there are now academies all over the world. This ministry trains leaders and does so, coordinating and assisting ministries with the same goal as Campus Crusade, reaching the world for Christ. The headquarters for ILA are in Phoenix, AZ. Their website has much more information about their mission, history and purpose.
