Indigenous Ministries Prepares for Leadership Training & National Pastors’ Conference in the Middle East
In August and September, an Indigenous Ministries’ U.S. team will lead Leadership Training meetings in Iraq and a National Pastors’ Conference in Egypt. Recent events in Afghanistan serve as a stark reminder that unless we equip and train nationals now, when doors do slam shut, we leave our Brothers and Sisters without trained leaders. These meetings are vital to ongoing nationals’ ministries and we ask for your prayers and support for them. There is still a need for $3500 for these meetings.

John Cook: One of the things that really excites me is that we’re bringing part of our Iraq ministry team over to Egypt to share and refresh the pastors there. We’re also using a resource by Dr. Imad Shehadeh in this conference on the Trinity. These are well trained, well seasoned men who have lived through wars and revolutions, yet continue to bring the Word of God week after week. Would you pray with us for these meetings? Pray for these men and for their ministries.
Craig Miller: We’ve crafted this conference around the theme of “The Impact of the Trinity in the Life and Ministry’ – a vital subject for pastors serving in a Muslim context. These faithful pastors have endured through persecutions and now through a pandemic, and our conference is designed to instruct and refresh them in every way through teaching, worship, fellowship and rest. God is already orchestrating details. Teachers from the U.S., Egypt, and Iraq will minister the Word together. One U.S. church donated funds to provide each pastor with an excellent volume on the Trinity in Arabic by Dr. Imad Shehadeh, “God With us and Without us, the Beauty and Power of Oneness in Trinity.”
