Pastor's Discipleship Network - Equipping Shepherds for God's Glory

Pastor's Discipleship Network (PDN) began as a dream in the heart of Richmond Wandera - a Compassion Leadership Development Program graduate. Richmond was 'raised from the dust' to lead this work, to encourage men and women who have a heart to disciple and pastor their people, but who have little or no theological training, little or no discipleship or mentoring, and few other resources at hand.

Now, resources such as study Bibles, Commentaries and other print resources, equipping conferences, and even bicycles are being made available to our brothers in Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda and Burundi.

Next week, from July 14th to the 16th, 2011, the Rooted in the Word pastor's confernce takes place in Kampala, Uganda. There is still much need for sponsorship of pastors in order to get them to the conference from their homes. Could you help with that? Just a little makes it possible for a man like Michael - a rural, untrained pastor - get some solid training and encouragment to equip him for the ministry God has called him to. Here his story here:

Can you sponsor a pastor for this conference? Can you donate a study Bible or other resource? Check out the PDN website and this short video for more information. In His service, for His glory.

Thanks for sharing this with us over at OC. The work that Richmond Wandera is doing is truly inspiring. When you consider there are 1,678 Compassion children waiting to be sponsored, and the difference this ONE Compassion child has made, it DOES make you believe that you can make a difference in the world by sponsoring one child.
