Equip a Pastor

Provide theology books to isolated Russian pastors, church planters, and evangelists to help equip them for ministry
Ministers in Russia and other former Soviet countries are handicapped by a scarcity of quality theological training resources. Because many live in isolated locations, the few available seminaries and ministry training center are difficult to access. You can bring theological resources to them through your gift to the Equip a Pastor project. Just $15 will provide a one-month supply of theology books to a pastor. For $270, you can stock a minster's library with about twenty-five books!

Your partnership will equip pastors with the much-needed tools they need to evangelize and disciple people across the cities, towns, and villages of Russia and former Soviet countries. Every month, for eighteen months, IMB missionaries will send a supply of up to two books to pastors, church planters, and evangelists that will help equip them for the task of sharing the gospel and shepherding local congregations. To ensure accountability and wise stewardship, each minister will be required to submit one book review every three months.

Location

European Peoples

With 810 million people, 51 sovereign states and 200 spoken languages, Europe is rich in diversity and character. These distinct cultures create a continent of global influence through language, politics, finance, fashion, and food. Though diverse, the peoples of Europe do have one thing in common—more than 98% do not follow Jesus.

Instead of seeing Europe’s decidedly post-Christian culture as a hindrance, IMB teams see the potential of what God wants to do on and through this influential continent. Not only do Europeans need the hope of the gospel, making it a primary place for ministry, but the global reach of its cities also makes it a strategic place as well. Immigrants comprise more than 15% of the population of gateway cities such as London, Paris, Madrid and Vienna.

Through dreaming big and taking faith-filled risks, IMB teams are connecting with European nationals, sharing the gospel and training local leaders. Their aim is to develop strong local leadership in every city and province who will lead biblically faithful and reproducing churches. Churches that plant new healthy churches will send the gospel to the nations of the world from every borough, town and village of the beautifully diverse continent of Europe.
