2019 Disciple-Makers Conference

THANK YOU so much for praying for and giving to the 2019 South American Disciple-Makers Conference! Approximately 27 pastors and 70 lay people received biblical instruction on God-centered relational evangelism using the Exchange materials. We thank the Lord for these tools to help us all fulfill the Great Commission and pray that God will give much fruit as a result of this conference.

Plans are already being made for next year’s Disciple-Makers Conference! Together with Arch Ministries, our goal is to see pastors from each of the 12 South American countries represented. If you know of a national pastor or missionary in one of these countries who would want to be a part of an interdependent network of like-minded churches, please send us their e-mail address so we can contact them.

Disciple-Making Seminar

The Lord blessed exceedingly abundantly above all we could ask or think in and through the Disciple-Making Seminar last week. All together, there were 83 pastors and their wives who attended. The purpose of the seminar was two-fold: 1.) to encourage pastors to follow a biblical model of disciple-making in their churches and 2.) to encourage like-minded pastors to work together in fulfilling the Great Commission to reach South America with the Gospel.

The pastors represented churches in the countries of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Uruguay and the United States.

(See more pictures here.)

Our church family generously provided all of the meals for the conference. Our daughter Lauren planned the menu and organized the purchases, volunteers, cooking, serving and cleaning. Our church people worked together as a true team, and we are so very proud of their servant’s hearts throughout the event! The pastors left feeling loved and appreciated, which was one of our goals as a church body.

Disciple-Making Seminar

conf header 1000x288 copy.jpg

We are privileged to be able to host the first South American Disciple-Making Seminar this September for national pastors and missionaries. Pastor Tim Potter, from Mentor, Ohio, will be the main speaker. In order to make this conference possible for many of the national pastors and missionaries, ARCH ministries has graciously agreed to cover the lodging, and our church in Pilar is providing the meals for this 3-day conference. We anticipate about 100 national pastors, missionaries and their wives to attend.

Our goal is to encourage these ministers to implement a culture of disciple-making in their churches through this conference and by making available to them the same resources that have been invaluable to us (i.e. discipleship materials). Here are the books we would like to provide for each pastor:

Foundations (Los Fundamentos) – We can get them printed here for $2.50 each.

The Trellis and the Vine (El Enrejado y La Vid)

 

Please pray for the Lord to continue to provide the funds and volunteer labor for this conference and for the Lord to give much fruit for these efforts.
