The Ethiopian Call: Planting Thriving Churches in Unreached Villages Across Ethiopia
The Ethiopian Call: We are launching into the SW Shewa Zone of Ethiopia into 393 unreached villages. All a church planter needs is your support! It is our vision that every soul will hear of the Gospel of saving grace through Jesus Christ regardless of how remote the location. – Petros Network
There are several ways to participate in planting a church:
- Personal Investment: Give a one-time $1,850 gift to launch a new church plant.
- Group Investment: Join with other Kingdom investors to co-sponsor a church plant.
- Recurring Investment: Through our online gifts module, schedule recurring donations and watch your support grow until you have sponsored a church plant.
Every little bit helps and can add up in big ways. Church planters are released when 75% of their church is funded.
What your sponsorship provides:
- Food and housing for a church planting pastor and his family for up to 24 months upon arrival in his unreached village.
- Two training conferences per year, taught by guest pastors and trainers from the United States along with Ethiopian faculty.
- Bibles for the people receiving Christ in their native language. This will supply Bibles for the initial converts. Some churches experience explosive growth and additional Bibles are required.
- Study aids, evangelism tools, and resources to meet the needs of the local congregation.
What you will receive as a sponsor and church planting partner:
- When you sponsor 100% of a church plant you can name your church.
- You will receive a packet introducing you to the pastor of your church plant.
- You will receive a report twice per year over the next two years from the pastor of your church plant. This report will include a picture of the pastor, details of his/her prayer needs, a description of his/her community, and a progress report of converts, baptisms, church attendance, and churches that have been planted out of his/her church.
- Ethiopian coordinators will translate letters and communicate messages between donors and their church planters.
- You will be given the opportunity to travel with the Petros Network team during a training conference to visit with your pastor and, if conditions permit, to travel to your sponsored church. Travel expenses are your responsibility, but Petros Network can coach you in building personal support for the cost of your trip.
