Until the provision of the Advance gift, our local pastors survived on a portion of plates collection during Sunday Services, an amount that could not purchase a 25kg bag of polished rice per month. With the Advance gift, they and their families have only had to worry about other necessities. District Superintendents were compensated by local churches mostly with kinds (locally produced rice, crops, bush meat, palm oil, etc.).

Goals & Objectives

To achieve this Mission, the project shall do the following: 1. Solicit salary support for our local pastors and district superintendents. 2. Provide/arrange salary support for our pastors and District Superintendents. 3. Disburse solicited and remitted salary support funds to local pastors and district superintendents equitably through the District Superintendents. 4. Follow up to monitor and evaluate the implementation of this project. 5. Request reports for the implementation/disbursement of the project fund from the District Superintendents. 6. Report periodically to the donors and the General Board of Global Ministries.

Activities Plan

1. Identify the condition and needs of Local Pastors and District Superintendents to measure the effect on the growth of the church in Rural Liberia. 2. Enumerate appointed and assigned Local Pastors and District Superintendents. 3. Set up minimum salary/compensation structure for the Pastors and District Superintendents. 4. Disburse monthly/and for quarterly salary support to direct beneficiaries. 5. Monitor and evaluate performance and report to donors.
