In the recent edition of our newsletter, “The Call,” we share about Winebrenner’s initiative to provide theological education and ministry training to leaders in Haiti. April 2019, Dr. Bruce Coats, our Academic Dean, will teach a week-long session on Hermeneutics which explores the interpretation of Scripture.
As you can imagine, such education is simply out of reach for most Haitian pastors, many who struggle with meeting the basic needs of their own families. So that we can offer this valuable course to as many Haitian pastors as possible, we are extending an invitation to our partners to provide tuition for a student in full or in part. The cost to provide the course to one student is $500, which provides the course, three meals per day as well as lodging. A gift of $50, $100 or even the full $500 would make this core education available to Haitian ministry leaders.
When I was last in Haiti, I was struck again by the pastors’ incredible passion to share their faith, disciple the members of their congregation, and affect change in their country. Their hunger and need for theological education, training, and sheer encouragement is overwhelming (view video below). I thank you on their behalf for your consideration.
To designate your gift as tuition for Haitian students, click on “Give to Winebrenner” and select “Student aid (donation)” on the online form.
