6. Supporting initiatives for the Training of agents for evangelization and development

The Oblate Development Programmes recognizes that 'leadership' and particularly, 'successful leadership', is the fundamental process by which development in society takes place. The world not only needs good leaders, but also religious leaders who protect and promote the value and tenants of personal and social conscience.

The Oblate Development Programmes invests, through a partnership with St Joseph's Theological Institute, in supporting the educational training processes by which agents for evangelization and development are produced for the life of the Church.

This partnership involves supporting the infrastructural framework of the Institute to provide an ever increasing quality of religious and leadership training for future ministers within the Church.
