This big beautiful city of Guadalajara, Mexico reminds us of this verse: The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few (Mat. 9:37)
For those of you who may not know, we are part of a church planting team working in the greater Guadalajara area. As of right now, there are 4 churches and 1 seminary. It is our privilege to serve in the area of leadership development. It is our work and prayer that we would help train up leaders and mentor those who are called to serve in a pastoral way. Pray for us and for Guadalajara. There is no pool of pastors to call upon who are both seminary trained and ordained to take over the work that is started; everything is from scratch. Also pray for commitment; anyone who chooses a life of service often lives a life of sacrifice and a lot of hard work.
Below are our responsibilities and ways we are looking for you to get involved:
1. We will be hosting 4 workshops a year on leadership development. We would love to have special speakers come here to help us with many of the important themes we hope to cover. Please contact us if you would like to get involved.
2. We will be dedicating a lot of help to the seminary in the next 2 years as it is being handed over to Mexican leadership. Dan will become a professor and we will be helping to promote the classes. We would love to see a few guest professors come out and help us teach some of the classes in Bible education. Do you know anyone itching to teach an intensive course in the next year?
3. We are mentoring and training ministerial candidates to serve in the churches as well as helping to get an ordination process going strong in our district. We hope to be a bridge promoting togetherness so the 4 churches will work together more. Please pray for us in this area as there is so much to do to help facilitate this.
4. October 27th-29th of this year we be throwing a youth event similar to LIFE with a dual emphasis in encouraging youth and also training up leaders to do follow up in their churches afterward as there is very little offered for this age group in the C&MA here.
Thank you to all of you around the world that support us. We appreciate you and know that without you, it would not be possible for us to be here in Guadalajara ministering to the Mexican people. Thank you for your partnership!
