We have a rich heritage that began in the early 80’s when our founding Pastor took his first mission trip to Myanmar to teach English in some of the most impoverished villages. That heritage continues today with the Karen & other tribal people who have found a refuge and a home here at Vineyard Boise for the past 12 years. As we look to the future there is a great opportunity as Myanmar has become much more accessible and open.
We want to seize that opportunity to establish as many kingdom churches as possible. We will only plant churches with indigenous leaders, in areas that no other church or Christian presence exists. Each pastor will be equipped with a theology of the Kingdom and a practice of compassion. This fall, we will be commissioning 30 new church planters into different villages across Myanmar!
how will we plant churches?
God has led us into relationship wth an amazing missionary family and an indigenous pastor’s family. Through connections in Myanmar and Mae Sot, Thailand, they have identified 30+ indigenous Bible school graduates and pastors who want to plant churches in unreached areas of Myanmar. A few of us were able to personally meet these pastors in April of 2018, when we participated in the first training session with them.
In conjunction with Petros Network (a kingdom church planting group), they will be holding these pastors accountable and helping them lead well. Our contacts will travel around the nation and check up on each church, and keep them accountable for any finances given.
For every $3,000 USD we raise, we will cover the costs for one of these 30 pastors to be sustained for two years while they plant a church! The money will cover their costs to travel to Mae Sot twice a year for training & support with the other indigenous leaders, provide a small monthly stipend for their family, and cover costs for the accountability system.
These pastors are excited to join a group of like-minded pastors who want to take the gospel and the practice of the kingdom to the poorest of the poor all across Myanmar!
Please consider joining us in this opportunity to impact this nation for Christ!
