One passion we have had is to connect stateside churches with church planters here. Many of the church planting pastors we work with are walking in obedience to their call without much, or any, fellowship and support with like minded pastors and churches. The theological and leadership training that we provide brings these men together to encourage and pray for one another. Beyond that, we hope to link them with a stateside church that will visit, encourage, pray for, and walk beside them.
The Vine Church in Madison, Wisconsin recently sent their two lead pastors, one with his wife, to Ecuador for our Pastor's Training Seminary. They taught on Biblical Marriage and Hermeneutics, served, loved, and encouraged church planting pastors from various areas in Ecuador. They were also an amazing encouragement to us personally in so many ways. Thank you so very much Scott, Zach and Kim! Here's the report they gave to their church and allowed us to share with you. We hope it gives you a greater understanding of the work of mentoring and training up pastors in Ecuador, and how joyful and God glorifying this task is.
