I have known Dr. M. David Sills and the ministry of Reaching and Teaching for several years now. They have my highest confidence. Dr. Sills is a rare combination of excellent missiologist and sound theologian. He understands the critical nature of solid theological training for church leaders if the fruit of Great Commission advance is to be preserved. His biblical and theological convictions are solid and deep. His missionary experience, combined with years of service in the seminary classroom, makes him uniquely qualified to lead an organization like Reaching and Teaching. He is also a delight to work with. The organization itself is doing excellent work laying solid biblical foundations in areas where the gospel is known but theological foundations are weak. I endorse Dr. Sills and the ministry of Reaching and Teaching with enthusiasm.

I heartily recommend the ministry of Reaching and Teaching because they take seriously the entirety of the Great Commission directive.

Reaching & Teaching International Ministries faithfully executes on the call of Christ to make disciples of all people groups. Based on the biblical call to reach the lost and disciple believers, the ministry is led by Dr. David Sills who brings field experience, academic credentials, and essential partnerships to his leadership of the organization. The result is a program that is as effective as it is faithful and as such, I recommend Reaching & Teaching to you as an organization deserving of the confidence of all evangelicals.

I recommend highly David Sills’ Reaching & Teaching training model for its biblical-theological solidity and its practically savvy. This model weds the head, the hearts, and the hands in a way that is reproducible and can be taught both to literate audiences and to oral learners.

I enthusiastically endorse the ministry of Dr. David Sills and Reaching & Teaching International. I use two of David’s books as required textbooks in the introductory seminary classes that I teach. The training program for pastors and church leaders is well conceived, and it is greatly needed in many nations around the world.

Mike Morris, D.Min., Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Missions and Associate Dean of Applied Ministry and Mentorship

I highly recommend both Reaching & Teaching International Ministries and its president, Dr. David Sills. They are worthy of your highest consideration and cooperation.

Donald S. Whitney

Professor of Biblical Spirituality; Associate Dean of the School of Theology

I believe that the work that Dr. Sills does through Reaching and Teaching International Ministries is advancing the Kingdom of God. The discipleship program that is provided through RTIM is very intensive and thorough.
