GARBC Project to Help Pastors
This Christmas adopt a GARBC project for gift giving! By doing so, you, your family, and your church can further the gospel and build up believers in churches in the U.S.A. and around the world. One of the projects will provide online training for pastors, associates, and leaders who desire to expand their knowledge base and ministry skill set. Often pastors and ministry leaders would like to further their education, but pursuing theological and ministry training is expensive and often requires travel. Your support will provide online education scholarships through the Regular Baptist Web Community. Donate now.
