Belize City, Belize

Belize is a small English-speaking nation that lies in the midst of the Spanish-speaking nations of Central America. It borders the Caribbean Sea to the east, Mexico to the north, and Guatemala to the west and south. Before gaining independence from Great Britain, it was a colony known as British Honduras. The training at Belize City is a strategic opportunity to equip pastors and leaders in the nation of Belize. It is expected that teams will have the opportunity to train 25-30 pastors and leaders in a training venue in the Baptist Resource Center in Belize City. The project site is expected to draw English speaking students potentially including some from among Maya and Garifuna indigenous groups.

Reaching & Teaching is seeking like-minded partnering churches that will send qualified teachers to Belize City 1 to 3 times per year for the duration of the 3-year training program.

Juazeiro do Norte, Brazil

Juazeiro do Norte is in the process of becoming a major hub in northeastern Brazil. Because this region of Brazil is one of the most heavily Catholic in the entire country, the area surrounding Juazeiro do Norte is one of the least reached and least discipled in all of Brazil. Few of the pastors in this region have any type of theological training.

Port-au-Prince, Haiti

The poorest country in the Western hemisphere, Haiti faces many barriers to social, economic, and political development. Though many nationals consider themselves Christians, there is a significant lack of gospel-centered preaching and discipleship. The country’s voodoo roots run deep, and many professing Christians engage in some form of voodoo worship yet today.

Since the massive earthquake in 2010, there has been a groundswell of interest in local churches working together in order to reach their country with the gospel of Jesus Christ. One of the church’s greatest needs in Haiti is theological training for the hundreds pastors in the outer-lying regions of the country who have little to no access to theological resources.

In an exciting partnership with a nation-wide network of churches, Reaching and Teaching is able to launch our first training site in Port-au-Prince. This opportunity will be the first of its kind in the country: one which specifically targets rural pastors with the formal and comprehensive training they so desperately need.
