One of the great joys I have in leading The Haiti Collective is the opportunity to provide instruction and encouragement to ministry leaders across Haiti through our network of churches. Theological education, pastoral training, and church reformation are massive needs in third-world countries, and Haiti is no exception.
Next month, over 60 pastors, deacons, and orphan school teachers from across our 13 churches in Haiti will come together for our third annual 3-day conference. We are excited to have a team of 10 pastors from five states going down to pour the Word of God into these leaders! The focus this year is on the nature and importance of Scripture for life and ministry. It is our hope and prayer that one of the key distinguishing aspects of our churches and their leadership is a deep love for God’s Word and commitment to preach, teach, and live it out!
This indigenous network of church leaders coming to the conference requires financial support from partners of THC. These men and women have invested their lives in leading local churches, all of which at this point are unable to financially support their leadership teams. Without the generous assistance of others through THC, these leaders simply would not be able to travel across the country and have the opportunity of receiving three days of intensive instruction and encouragement from God’s Word.
This upcoming Haitian Bible Conference will take place January 7-9, 2013, and we ask for your prayers as our team of ten pastors are actively preparing their messages. We also ask that you consider investing in the theological education of these church leaders by giving a year-end financial gift which will help cover the cost of travel and hotel accommodations for men and women hungry to know God’s Word. To do that, we need to raise $8,750 by the end of 2012, and with your help we believe we can reach that goal!
No gift is too great or small. We seriously and sincerely appreciate all the support from you who believe in the work we are doing in Haiti. For there to be long-term reformation and revival in Haiti, it begins with a serious investment of the Word of God into leaders of churches. We long to see that happen, and with these small beginnings, we believe God will use them for His glory.
