Developing strong spiritual leaders is one of the most effective ways to facilitate change in Haiti. If pastors are fully equipped to lead their churches and other Christian leaders are better equipped to do their jobs, God’s Kingdom will be expanded and other tangible changes will follow.
NVM is actively working with pastor in the surrounding communities. They are being better prepared to lead and to understand and teach God’s Word.
Leadership development is also a goal of Nehemiah Worship Chapel. Pastor Pierre is working with a core group, walking them through a process to help them lead better. And the same process will be extended to other churches that are planted by NVM.
Nehemiah Worship Chapel also sponsors a Brigade program for young people. One of the major purposes of this program is to prepare students to become strong leaders in the church and to assume leadership roles in their families and community.
Leadership Development Goals
The monthly pastor conferences will continue. And there are plans being developed to expand this program to provide even more thorough training related to leadership.
On a quarterly basis, the conference will be expanded into a full day event. This will allow for a more thorough and comprehensive session to provide even greater content to the pastors. Guest presenters will be drawn in from Haiti as well as from the United States.
The end goal is to move the pastors from where they are now to where God wants them to be. Many of the pastors have had limited educational and training opportunities. These conferences will provide needed development training in their lives.
The leadership development work in the church will also continue. We are committed to producing strong leaders for the future of Haiti.
