THANK YOU so much for praying for and giving to the 2019 South American Disciple-Makers Conference! Approximately 27 pastors and 70 lay people received biblical instruction on God-centered relational evangelism using the Exchange materials. We thank the Lord for these tools to help us all fulfill the Great Commission and pray that God will give much fruit as a result of this conference.
Plans are already being made for next year’s Disciple-Makers Conference! Together with Arch Ministries, our goal is to see pastors from each of the 12 South American countries represented. If you know of a national pastor or missionary in one of these countries who would want to be a part of an interdependent network of like-minded churches, please send us their e-mail address so we can contact them.
One of our Acts 1:8 church-planting goals is to encourage and equip other missionaries and national pastors in disciple-making in South America. In June we will offer another pastors’ disciple-making seminar, with a focus on personal evangelism. Pastor Jeff Musgrave will be here to teach the Exchange Bible study and we will have times of disciple-making testimonies as well as prayer in small groups.
Praise the Lord, there are currently 73 people registered for the disciple-making conference in June! Twenty-eight are from our church and forty-five are from Buenos Aires, other provinces in Argentina, as well as Uruguay.
Our goal in the conference is two-fold: 1.) to teach a God-centered method of personal evangelism and 2.) to continue to create an interdependent network of like-minded churches in South America who agree to pray for one another, strengthen one another, and work together to plant churches for the glory of God.
This is no small task! Please pray for wisdom for us and for a teachable spirit in the mind of each one present.
Thank you for your support for this important step of personal growth for so many. We have surpassed our goal for funding this year’s conference and will use any additional funds for the 2020 conference when we hope to have representatives from every country in South America present!
