- Previous classes have met in various borrowed spaces, often with limited space for the growing number of students.
Construction has begun!
Project: Tambo, Ecuador Training Center
Cost: $18,000- Reaching & Teaching Pastoral Training Center
Location: Tambo, Ecuador
Still Needed: $4,200
Reaching & Teaching is nearing completion on a pastoral training center and ministry base in Tambo, Ecuador, an area with more than 330 isolated communities with only 32 churches. An area where in one part of the region a single believing couple lives hours from the next believers. A region where those who are believers are persecuted for the faith. And in this area, those pastoring the churches have often never even been discipled. They've never been taught the Bible. And yet that which it proclaims is the only hope.
These believers are motivated. They know that they are not equipped for the task to which God has called them. As such, they have already contributed $12,000 of their own money to go toward the construction of the Reaching & Teaching Pastoral Training Center in Tambo, Ecuador.
The construction is almost complete. In addition to the money raised by the Ecuadorian believers, a recent Reaching & Teaching short-term team serving in the area contributed an additional $1,000 and then we have been blessed to receive donations from partners around the country. We only need to raise an additional $4,200 to complete the building and open the facility!
The Reaching & Teaching Pastoral Training Center will allow us to expand and strengthen our ministry in Ecuador. We will be able to provide housing for pastors who come from all around the country to attend our training sessions, have a location for our classes, and provide a base for evangelism, medical, vision, and dental relief work, and church planting training that we offer.
Please pray about contributing to this project. The facility will allow us to more effectively minister to faithful followers of Christ who are eager to know how to serve Him more fully and obediently. They only lack the facility and the trainers. By God's grace and for His glory we hope to be able to provide both so that His Kingdom is expanded and Christ is made known.
