We have an update with eternal ramifications concerning one of our ministries. We need your: help, prayers, and financial support.
RREACH is thankful for God’s amazing work. God has called, gifted, and placed over 2 million pastors. However, did you know that only 5% of pastors are trained for pastoral ministry? Pastoral health affects church health. Church health affects societal health. Introducing Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers.
What: The Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers (GProCongress) connects, unites and strengthens pastoral trainers in order to better deliver training to the world’s 2 million-plus undertrained pastors.
Who: The GProCongress, convened by RREACH, is for anyone involved in formal and non-formal pastoral training of any kind, anywhere. We expect attendance of up to 5,000 pastoral trainers working in 200 countries, including individuals, churches, organizations and institutions.
How: This specialized gathering will fulfill its purposes by providing opportunities to Build Community, Explore Opportunity, Discover Resources and Exchange Encouragement. To carry momentum created by the GProCongress into the future, attendees will commit to training, on average, 25 pastors a year for the following four years (2016-2020).
Why: Pastoral health is systemically enhanced by better delivery of more pastoral training with coordinated follow-up. Healthy pastors lead healthier churches, and healthier churches are more able to reach their communities for Christ.
Anticipated Outcome: The measurable outcome is 100,000 connected, united, strengthened pastors and 20,000 more pastoral trainers ministering in 200 countries by 2020.
When: June 15-22, 2016 (follow-up: June 23, 2016-December 31, 2020)
Where: Bangkok, Thailand
This epic congress with the potential to reach 1 billion people is being put on for only $5 million. Of this amount, only $1.6 million is still needed. With 20 days to go, please pray about what God would have you to give to M2M so we can give generously to this great movement.
We cannot express our gratitude to you for your prayers and support for not only RREACH but for M2M and the many life giving ministries we support who are doing the work of the Kingdom worldwide. We are offering a FREE e-guide from Ramesh Richard as a thank you and a guide in your prayer: Praying Against Terrorism?
