Training Church Leaders in Indonesia & Malaysia
Organized by: David Lawrence
EVENT DATE Jul 03, 2014
On August 4-11, 2014, I have been invited for the first time to speak in multiple ministry venues in Indonesia and Malaysia. We would love to partner with you as we train church leaders and strengthen local churches in digital communications.
The first stop will be at the Holy Stadium led by Pastor Petrus Agung, a 12 thousand seat auditorium, a large Christian Church and Bible College in Semarang, Indonesia, the worlds largest muslim nation. (Only 11% of Indonesia’s population is considered Christian. ) After 4 days in Indonesia, we will be traveling to Singapore, Malaysia to be at one of the largest churches in Southeast Asia, City Harvest Church, a thirty-five thousand member congregation led by Pastor Kong Hee. While with Pastor Kong, we will be speaking and doing staff development with his team in the areas of leadership and digital communications.
This invitation has come through a long-time friend, Troy Marshall, president and founder of Lionsgate Leadership and Missions Institute in Orange County, CA. Troy has had a long-time relationship with these pastors and is a frequent guest speaker at their churches in Indonesia and Malaysia every year. Troy and I will be traveling and ministering together. When ministering in Indonisia and Malaysia I will be speaking in several ministry venues: churches, Bible Training Schools, Staff Church leader chapels, and pastor/leader conferences. I’ve been asked to speak on leadership and digital communications.
The digital age is changing the way we do missions. Churches in other countries are crying out for missionaries and leaders with knowledge and expertise in leadership development and technology to help advance and guide their local church through the digital and social media areans of the online space.
Together, we can impact local churches in these countries by helping them expand their knowledge and skills to reach more people through the digital landscape.
This will be my 20th nation to minister in outside of the Unites States. But, this will be my first time to minister in this part of the world. I am humbled and honored that these great leaders would trust me with their ministry platform. But, for this to happen, I need your help and your partnership.
Our goal is to raise $5,000 to cover travel costs. This is a major challenge. I must raise these funds before July 3, 2014. I would love to have you partner with me today. First, to pray for the leaders and the churches in Southeast Asia and second to give a donation by partnering with us to send me to Indonisia and Malaysia this August 2014.
As a suggested partnership, here are a few ways you can help. Please prayfully consider what level you would like to partner:
• 5 partnerships at $1000 = $5,000
• 10 partnerships at $500 = $5,000
• 20 partnerships at $250 = $5,000
• 50 partnerships at $100 = $5,000
• Prayer partnerships
Thank you so much for your friendship to Liz and I. We believe its through the power of friendship that great things can happen! There’s an old saying, “show me your friends, and I will show you your future!” Liz and I believe God has given us a great future, because He has surrounded us with friends like you! We love you and believe in you! Thank you for believing in us by making a financial investment today into the leaders and churches of Indonisia and Malaysia!
I will be following up with you in a couple of days to make sure you received our letter and to answer any questions you may have.
Together, we can change the world!
P.S. A note from Liz: I am beyond excited and grateful for this opportunity for our family to serve these leaders in Indonesia and Malaysia. God has blessed David with messages of wisdom, hope and practical tools to empower and encourage these leaders. Please join us in practically and prayfully sharing the love of Jesus with these incredible nations! Warmly, Liz Lawrence
