I hesitated to blog about this, but a friend of mine told me that people can’t help when they don’t know what the needs are.
The church I serve as pastor is very small, and for most of my time as pastor I have been bi-vocational, working an outside job to help pay the bills. Unfortunately, recent economic conditions have affected things around here, as they have everywhere, and I have not had work outside the church in almost a year now. We are getting by, and all the bills are current, but most (all!) “extras” have been severely curtailed.
I have long desired to attend the Shepherds’ Conference at John MacArthur’s church, and so I am asking for your help. My church as set up a pastor’s conference fund, and I need to raise $1000 in order to attend the conference next March.
If you would like to help, please send your check to:
Superior Baptist Church
Pastor’s Conference Fund
PO Box 850
Superior, MT 59872
Thank you, and I’ll keep you updated!
People have asked if they could donate with PayPal. There is now a PayPal button on the sidebar.
Also, several folks have asked “Why so much to go to a conference?” Good question, and here’s the breakdown:
- Conference – $300
- Fuel down and back – $300
- 5 nights hotel – $400
- 9 days food ($20/day) –$180
- Total est. cost = $1180.00
