Pastor Think Tank: Supporting Nationals
Thursday, Sept. 16 10:00–11:00 a.m. CDT

We will be discussing issues regarding the support of nationals as part of the church’s missions budget. Much of the literature that deals with supporting national pastors or church planters notes the hazards—and for good reason. However, when comparing the financial support of five church planters for $500 a month to the financial support of one American for $5,000 a month, we realize the need to investigate this topic further. This is an issue every pastor needs to consider. Register now!
