Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference Parish Partners
Providing salary support and health benefits for pastors, enabling them to focus on the work
Describe the need affecting community
A large percentage of our churches are small membership churches and also rural; therefore it is hard if not impossible to meet the salary of a pastor, full time or part time.
How will this Advance project help to address the need?
All funds received go to help with pastor salaries.
Describe the primary goal of the project
The primary goal of this project is to assist in meeting the salary for our pastors. If we can’t give our pastors a salary, then we wouldn’t be able to reach the Native people with the good news of Jesus Christ which could be a great transformation for our denomination.
Describe the change you would like to see in the community as a result of this Advance project
Pastors not only have a living wage, but that more churches would be able to receive licensed pastors.
