In the past, the rural Pastors have had very little training from the Bible. As a result they believe and teach many things that are not scriptural. One of the most important areas is our understanding of the New Covenant. So many church members are still trying to serve Jesus in the way of the Old Covenant, trying to obey rules and regulations while remaining under guilt, shame, condemnation, and fear. Breaking the spiritual bondage of this false gospel is our God given goal.
Tommy meets weekly with 12 men, all of the 5 church’s leadership, to train them in the Scriptures as well in how to lead and pastor churches in rural Nicaragua. His goal is to train New Covenant leaders who experience the true power of grace and see their own lives transformed and then powerfully influence and serve their communities with love, wisdom and truth. Displacing the spiritual and physical poverty with life, freedom and abundance of the Kingdom of God is our goal.
