The Pastor support program has been in place for more than fifteen years and is a vital link to the rural work of evangelism and church planting in Africa. The program involves the spiritual oversight and financial assistance to rural native African pastors and leaders.
These native pastors are an active and vibrant part of the ministry in the countries of Malawi and Mozambique, they are pastoring rural churches, doing extensive evangelism outreaches into unreached areas, and planting churches to expand the Kingdom of God.
Since these church leaders make their living through subsistence farming, many struggle to meet the financial needs of their families. School fees for their children, ministry travel expenses, and food in times of drought, are a constant challenge to these leaders. This Pastor Support program enables these dedicated pastors and church leaders to continue the work of evangelism and church-planting throughout the many financial challenges they face.
Bicycles are a vital tool for transportation in Malawi and Mozambique, because there is little public transportation available in many areas. This program helps native leaders in a big way by supplying many pastors and Overseers with a bicycle for ministry travel.
A bicycle costs about $80, and this simple item can allow these men and women to travel almost anywhere in the rural areas to minister and visit their churches.
Bicycles are practical, affordable and easy to buy locally. If you would like to help an overseer or pastor by buying a bicycle, or contributing towards one, this is a wonderful way to show support.
