Need in Latin America
Posted on May 14, 2019
I am so encouraged by the response to our Heroes Matching Campaign! We have now exceeded $34,000 in donations toward the match, meaning we have less than $16,000 to go until we reach our total goal of $100,000! Thank you!
Not long ago I was in San José, Costa Rica, and I was reminded again why our work in Latin America is so important. I met with the lead editor of the Latin America Bible Commentary, Ian Darke, who has spent decades doing research and working with the continent’s greatest Christian leaders and thinkers. All his research and experience has led him to the conclusion that the need for trained pastors in Latin America has never been greater.
There is a shocking lack of biblical training which has led to an explosion of false doctrines like the so-called “prosperity gospel.” When pastors are unfamiliar with the Word of God or have wrong ideas about leadership, their churches suffer and their communities remain in darkness. This is one of the reasons I wrote my book, “The Healthy Church.” We have a vision to see godly pastors and ministry workers leading healthy churches with a solid foundation in the Word of God. The impact a healthy church can have on its community is astounding!
When you give to Global Action, you are helping us change the trajectory of a leader, a church, and a community. You can participate with us as we equip heroes to lead their churches towards Christ and away from harmful cultural currents. Don’t miss the opportunity to have your gift matched dollar-for-dollar! Donate today, and together we can turn the tide in Latin America.
For Healthy Churches,
Dr. Rick Thompson
