Paying for ministry

12 Oct

It is said that over 90% of pastors are bi-vocational…their churches are not able to financially provide the support they need to live and take care of their families. Rather than fight this truth, the Church has an opportunity to help these pastors make a living in such a way that they are also able to care for their flocks. This applies even more to national movement leaders like Eduardo pictured above. He has a ministry to leaders in a number of countries. In fact, he will be going to C…a next week to provide training to leaders of very large church movements in that closed country. Eduardo does have partial support from the States, but he is also pursuing economic opportunities that make up the rest of the support that he needs. Today he and I visited some property that he has purchased and will be developing for housing. This photo is just a small part of the incredible view surrounding this property and I believe it’s going to be a wonderful business for him. As a mission we want to encourage and come alongside movement leaders like Eduardo to enable them to not only impact national leaders around the world, but also to help them find the means to support themselves while doing it.
