About The Location & History
The Grace Project International (TGPI) and its school in Zambia, The Grace Institute Zambia (TGIZ) is focused on training pastors who are called to serve but face educational and financial challenges which prevent them from attending established Bible colleges and Seminaries. In fact, 85% – 90% of the estimated 4.0 million pastors and ministry leaders worldwide struggle to find good theological education and ministry training that is accessible to them.
Special Fundraiser – Solar Powered Lights
UPDATE: Thank you for your generosity! Prolonged power-cuts force students to study under unreliable makeshift lights. Our solution was to purchase at least seven solar-powered lights and seven rechargeable lights worth $1750 that would be charged during the day and ultimately used during classes.
You have helped us achieve our campaign target for energy solutions in 2022!
Who Are We Partnering With?
Brian and Muriel Windsor have always been enthusiastic supporters of Christian workers at home and abroad. In April 2008, Brian served on a short-term trip to Lusaka, Zambia. It was there that God gave him a dream and a love for the Zambian people. Brian and Muriel continue to serve and lead the people of Zambia through TGPI.
Basil and Karen Taylor are our workers in Zambia. Basil is the National Director at The Grace Institute Zambia and overseas the Institute along with his wife Karen who is the Director of the schools under TGIZ. Together, they work alongside Brian to further progress the overall mission of TGPI.

What Is The Initiative?
THE PROBLEM: 3.6 million pastors and ministry leaders worldwide cannot access good quality, grace-based, theological education, and ministry training. This deficit negatively affects pastoral health, church health, and societal health.
WHY? Pastors who are not trained Biblically cannot think, live, or teach Biblically.
WHAT’S TGPI’S SOLUTION? Grace-based theological education and ministry training that is accessible, transformational, and indigenous.
The Grace Project International was created to address the great need to provide training and education for pastors at a high-quality level and economically for those struggling financially. If a pastor is well trained, not only is their church impacted, but the entire community is transformed by their leadership!
THE VISION: To be the world’s most accessible, transformational, and indigenous Bible colleges and ministry training centers that testify to the gospel of God’s grace.
THE GREATEST CHALLENGE FACED BY THE GLOBAL CHURCH TODAY:
Why is TGPI/TGI so important? Where does TGPI/TGI ‘fit’ in the theological education/ministry training landscape?
85%-90% of untrained pastors cannot access good quality theological education and ministry training in Zambia. In fact, most churches do not require minimum qualifications to lead churches here. This remains a real challenge for the nation.
TGPI/TGIZ is positioned to ‘bridge the gap’ between this problem faced by the church and the current state of the pathway for pastoral qualifications.
TGIZ is making good Theological Education & Ministry Training accessible to all!
