#2872517 - Josh: Books for East Asia seminary students
In one of the East Asia provinces where Josh McDowell Ministry works, only 380 ordained pastors serve 2.5 million Christians. Another 100,000 new believers are joining churches each year.
It’s wonderful that the church is growing dramatically. But all of this growth means some pastors must look after up to 300 congregations and groups. Many work seven days a week with no time off.
Even worse, there’s a shortage of Christian resources. Since most of these pastors make only the equivalent of $350 to $500 a month — less than half of the average wage — it’s difficult for them to buy the tools they need to do ministry well.
New pastors need Christ-centered resources
For more than 30 years, Josh McDowell Ministry has worked with Christian leaders in East Asia to provide biblical resources for students and pastors. For the past six years, the ministry has been providing eight-book libraries of Josh's books to students graduating from state seminaries and training centers.
With your generosity today, many more young Christian leaders will be equipped with the tools they need to study God’s Word, defend their faith and disciple others.
Right now, we need to raise $154,000 to provide graduates in East Asia with their own personal library of Christ-centered books — including titles like More Than a Carpenter!
Every $7.33 you give now will provide one book.
Won’t you give generously now to provide as many books as you can?
