Sponsor a Chinese pastor to attend a training conference
All of us need refreshment as well as encouragement. 110 Chinese pastors participated in the conference I had the privilege of co-leading. 70% of these dear pastors had never been on an airplane and had never traveled outside of China. This conference provided for them a “safe” environment, free from any threat from government officials. For many of these pastors this conference may be the only conference they might ever attend. For four days, 8 hours a day we spent time in worship, training from God’s Word, fellowship and just having fun. They went home refreshed and ready to face the ongoing challenges of serving the Lord in China. Our partner in China coordinates seven of these types of conferences each year. You can send a Chinese pastor to a training conference for $400. If you want to make a substantial investment, you can sponsor an entire conference for $50,000.

Virtually all come to trust in Jesus. $50.00 per month will help support a teacher and help her lead three different groups.
