Equipping Church Leaders

Our Ministry Focus

 

Using a variety of means, e.g., pastors conferences, modular theological courses, formal and informal theology training ministry, and written theological resources, the focus of Pastors of the Caribbean is to help train and equip men for the gospel ministry of Jesus Christ in the Caribbean (at present primarily in Haiti). By God's grace, we deisre to help the protestant pastors and church leaders, with whom we work, to better teach and preach the Holy Bible and to better shepherd and pastor those in their churches. We are blessed to have friend/fellowship with several seminary trained pastors here in North America who sacrificially help us to accomplish our ministry objectives.
