One of the most powerful ways to be involved in effective missions today is through the support of national (indigenous) workers. Through Empower Ministries, you can partner with these dedicated national workers and their ministries without ever leaving Canada. Your partnership will result in churches being planted and people coming to Christ.
National worker support provides food, housing, clothing and some transportation money enabling an indigenous pastor and his family to evangelize and plant churches. This support costs as little as $30 per month.
In many countries, national workers are in need of training due to varying factors. In some cases, the fast growth rate of the Church creates an urgent need for pastors. Often the cost of training is prohibitive to many in areas of poverty and need. Other restrictions may keep pastors from receiving training.
Empower Ministries assists with this great need by helping with training seminars, which are conducted by qualified national teaches as well as gifted foreign instructors.
An essential tool desperately needed by numerous pastors is a theological study library. Pastors long to have access to reference books and Study Bibles to assist them in leading their churches. These books allow them to delve deeper into God's Word. A typical pastor's library will include eight to twelve theological and training books as well as a pastor's Study Bible.
Pastors in many countries face a great problem that many in North America only dream of - having so many Christians coming to the Lord that they can't keep up with them! A key ingredient to the growth and development of these new believers is having trained pastors to lead them. Our assistance enables young pastors to receive essential theological training at a low cost and gives them the tools needed to effectively pastor their flocks.
Your partnership to provide the tools and resources needed by national workers can make a huge difference in their ministries.
