ACTION Pastoral Leadership Development
85% of the pastors in the world have no formal training in theology or ministry.
Many pastors and their families live on less than $1 per day and face overwhelming needs.
Lacking basic Biblical discipleship and training, many pastors and churches fall prey to false teaching and worldly methods.
Bruce serves as ACTION's International Coordinator for Pastoral Leadership Development and Carol serves as his administrative assistant: 1) establishing nationally lead and sustained church leader and planter Biblical training centers for multiplication of disciples to Christ, 2) serving and representing ACTION missionaries and their pastor training ministries, and 3) coaching and coordinating a growing team of pastors and missionaries who are teaching pastors' conferences, writing training materials, assisting with sustainable ministries and conducting "skypleship" pastor training.
Wycliffe Bible Translators, the mission organization that we work for here in Papua New Guinea (PNG), was started in 1942 to enable Bible translation for the minority languages of the world. Through the work of Wycliffe here in PNG, two hundred language groups have received the New Testament. Bible translation continues among nearly 400 languages in PNG.
We live in Ukarumpa, in the Eastern Highlands Province, near the center of the nation of PNG. This allows Steve access by road or airplane to supervise any Wycliffe work among the 74 Highlands Region languages. Celene assists the Director for Regional Centers (DRC) to keep the eight office/guesthouse/training facilities serving Bible translators around the nation of PNG.
Montie is a counselor with over 40 years of experience working with children, teens and families, as well as 10 years as a former fulltime missionary director with Child Evangelism Fellowship in Washington State.
