Live Connection Pastors run their churches, sow into their communities and spread the gospel. Pastors are carefully chosen and are accountable to a Key Contact person overseeing their area.
Sponsors usually come from more developed nations with more abundant resources. Redistribution of these resources can have a huge global impact in building the Kingdom.
Sponsors choose Pastors with whom to team up by providing financial support, and prayer for each other. A partnership is a joint venture in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Live connection works mainly in developing nations around the world, where resources are not in abundance. People in such places need to be reached with the gospel.
Why It Works
Live Connection facilitates 'Partnerships' between people. One person, the Sponsor, provides financial support for the other, the Pastor.
Already Established Trust
Pastors often already run a church and are already trusted by their communities, and so do not have to spend any time gaining credibility.
More 'Bang For Your Buck'
Nothing is spent on airfares. Pastors are also used to subsisting with less than people in wealthy nations, and so finances are able to stretch further.
They Speak the Language
Pastors already speak the local language thus do not have to spend time learning how to do so.
