Story number 3 for 19 Apr 2001
Posted: 19 April, 2001
Despite opposition to the Gospel in parts of the Philippines, pastors are eagerly seeking church planting and evangelistic training. Doctor David Shibley of Global Advance recently held a Frontline Shepherds Conference on the Island of Mindanao, where more than one-thousand pastors attended. \"Pastors don\'t have the opportunity for formal training. We obviously can\'t give them a Bible school education in three or four days. What we can give them is a track to run on. As the Lord provides we want to really continue to resource pastoral leaders in the Philippines because we believe they\'re a crucial part of seeing the fulfilling of the Great Commission throughout Asia.\" The church, says Shibley, has other challenges. \"A challenge both from communism and from Islam. However, there is a tremendous advance of the Gospel. I think there\'s been an immerging younger church in the Philippines that is very evangelistic.\" 30-dollars provides \"harvest kits\" to help in church planting and evangelism in these harsh conditions.
