Spring Fundraising Campaign

Spiritual Life of the Minister

$3,762 of $20,000 raised

There is an epidemic among American pastors that is impacting families and churches across the nation.

Many pastors are burning out, so concerned about the spiritual health of their people and their own family that they neglect their own spiritual health.

We want to equip and encourage pastors, so we are producing a new class this spring on the Spiritual Life of the Minister. This class will offer spiritual and practical encouragement to pastors and other church leaders.

But we need your help! Since we never charge for our classes, we need your help to raise the $20,000 necessary to produce this class. And thanks to the board of BiblicalTraining, all donations will be matched, up to $20,000.

Perhaps you are not a pastor and are tempted to bypass this opportunity. But would you consider making a donation on behalf of your pastor? If you donate $100 or more, you'll receive the entire class on a USB drive that you can give to your pastor as a gift (anyone can donate, but due to high shipping costs, we can only send the USB drive to addresses in the continental U.S).
