The goal of White Fields is to establish self-sustaining new churches. We provide the start-up salary to an indigenous pastor, so that he can minister full-time, sacrificially serving a community that needs an evangelical church.
“Your support helps the children of these communities receive a quality education and relief from poverty.”
Children in poor countries do not automatically receive free education. In some cases school is not available to them without their own supplies. The local church, under the direction of the pastor, establishes ministry outreach to these underprivileged children. The pastor and his wife often start preschools, provide school supplies, and give a foundation that helps children and families rise out of poverty caused by the lack of education.
The church also provides Bible schools that share the gospel, teaching Bible stories and providing opportunities for biblical character development. A community depressed by generations of little or no education—both academic and biblical—is transformed through this ministry.
Because our pastors are from the culture in which they serve, they strategically meet the needs of children and families within their community. Parents can often be reached because of the improved behavior of their children who’ve been transformed by the gospel. Parents and community leaders are often drawn to Christ by observing the compassion of the church toward the weakest children in their community. Street kids, children thrown into a life of begging or prostitution are rescued by the church and given new hope through a relationship with Jesus Christ and ongoing fellowship with a supportive community of Christians. These children will grow into young adults and one day will establish their own families based on Christian principles.
“The character development taught to children through Bible lessons improves the quality of future leaders in the communities, families, and churches.”
In poor communities our pastors establish feeding ministries supported by the members of the local church. Genuine compassion is a natural out-growth in the lives of forgiven and transformed new Christians. Through these ministries a healthy meal shared with the malnourished and less fortunate children of the neighborhood—by the local church members—dramatically impacts the whole community.
By supporting the pastors of White Fields you make possible the generous relief to children through the ongoing ministry of a local church congregation.
