The Timothy Fund
In building the kingdom of God, the deliberate, diverse and dedicated discipleship of national leaders remains a priority. We multiply our impact when we mobilize thousands of kingdom-minded leaders.
The PAOC currently has 38 partner institutions in 31 countries from Southeast Asia, to Eurasia to the MENA region and Africa to South America and the Caribbean. Last year, the Timothy Fund provided 234 scholarships to students in 23 of our international colleges.
Timothy Fund Scholarships defer tuition costs and are given directly to schools for students' accounts. Each scholarship is worth $600, and is often accompanied by students participating in school life as a way of participating in their educational costs.

Asian Outreach, Mongolia
With 36 percent of the population living below the poverty line, Mongolia is a third world country left in decay following the 1991 fall of Communism. Asian Outreach's Education and Community Development programs provide literacy classes, small business loans, and training for poor and needy families. On the spiritual side, prior to 1990, there were only five known Christians in Mongolia. That number has now dramatically increased to over 60,000. Asian Outreach has been closely involved in that change, training over 85 percent of Mongolia's Christian leaders through their Leadership Training programs.

L'viv Theological Seminary
With the fall of communism in 1991, a great door for the gospel opened up in Ukraine. However, it is estimated that 90% of those who are leading the church today have no theological training. L'viv Theological Seminary is committed to preparing Christian men and women for ministry, equipping them with the tools they need to be leaders in the Ukrainian church of tomorrow. LTS has approximately 1000 students preparing for ministry.
