Living Bread Ministries plants indigenous churches among the poorest communities around the globe through a community development model. Join me in helping them accomplish their goals. Join my small fundraiser.
My goal is modest, only $200. But I should have enough friends to multiply my small contribute of $25 to reach the $200. That's only 7 friends giving $25 each. But of course, any gift of any size would be greatly appreciated. Consider deferring ONE Christmas gift to help support church planting among the poorest of us on this planet. Thanks, for considering your part.

Living Bread Ministries is leading a comprehensive church planting movement among the global poor. We plant churches among the marginalized, proclaiming the Gospel and making disciples while assisting them to meet the comprehensive needs of their community. Our unique approach combines church planting, humanitarian aid, and development work in the context of an indigenous local church. Please consider donating through my fundraiser >>
As Christians, we need to ask: does it matter to us that people live in poverty and in conditions that prevent healthy stable, safe lives and a more positive and fruitful future?
Overwhelmed? You should be. Poverty stats stare us right in the face. These stats (and far many more) can be found on almost any poverty website, NGO website, or among the number anti-poverty agency websites here in the USoA or around the globe. A quick Google search will hunt them down for you.
What I am most concerned with here, however, is not just simply connecting you with issues of poverty, but that you understand these statistics are not numbers but real, living human beings--our neighbors, locally and globally. One should recall as you are reading these stats what Jesus referred to as the command like unto the first, Love your neighbor as yourself.
Living Bread Ministries intentionally seeks to plant churches in global neighborhoods surrounded by poverty. Here is the mission and purpose in their own words . . . see Wasted Evangelism in Action page
