As Trainers, the process of moving from fear to faith, from doubt to belief, from concern to confidence, from ‘my need’ to inviting others to partner with me, will all begin the very first day in the program, in your online classroom.
Your Coach will continue your training in partnership development until you’ve reached your destination, FULLY FUNDED as A Way Of Life! Your coach will walk alongside you, encouraging you through the process to 100% funding.

He has a well-established work in Nicaragua, training leaders, planting churches and working with a broad range of social issues. Cheyenne and his family currently reside in Florida, traveling to Nicaragua on a regular basis.
“After serving more than 16 years as a non-resident missionary to Nicaragua we learned about and received the training offered by KCT. I knew immediately that this was the answer for missionaries to resolve the challenges of being fully funded for the mission that we have all been called to. There simply is no better feeling than knowing that as a trainer with KCT, we are equipping and connecting partners for the Kingdom.”

“I believe all Christians are called to fulfill the Great Commission in some way, and it is such an honor to join in partnership with missionaries who have a passion for becoming the expression of Christ to the world. I look forward to helping each missionary I coach build momentum through partnership development as they utilize their God-given strengths for sharing their passion with others and witness God’s faithfulness and provision.”
Jerry Long – Founder
Founder, Jerry Long went to home to Jesus April 13, 2016. Though he is not here in person, his legacy lives on through the mentoring, videos and writing he has left for those of us who are here to carry on.
Jerry Long was a visionary. When God gave him a dream he grabbed it with his big hands and wouldn’t let go. He would find people who could share that dream, ask for God’s blessing, add hard work, and in time it would become a reality.
Jerry served 43 years with Wycliffe Bible Translators as a Journalist, Administrator and International Training Consultant. For many of those years he traveled the world, developing a process of training missionaries to rapidly build financial partnerships. In 2007, after retiring from Wycliffe, he founded Kingdom Come Training (now KCT/APD) to help equip faith workers achieve full funding fast using live, interactive videoconferencing.
He often said, “Nothing excites me more than having a part in equipping and releasing a generation of fully funded witnesses for Christ on our world.”
Lady Carol Long introduced the concept and strategy of coaching and accountability, completing the program offered today.
“I believe with all my heart that KCT is here for such a time as this. We cannot be silent! If we do not do our part, God will surely find another way to bring relief and deliverance for this time in history. Missionaries, leaders, teachers, all faith workers, need to be fully funded so they can focus on their calling instead of worrying about their finances.
God has shown KCT a path that, when followed, leads to 100% funding and freedom to do His bidding. Each of us must do our part to take the message of the risen Christ to the nations.”
