Most people have two main concerns when it comes to sharing the Gospel: not knowing what to say and facing rejection. IMB missionaries Jay and Kathy Shafto address these concerns as they equip believers in the Congo Basin to share the Gospel confidently and continually.
Working with existing churches in the area and training leaders in local churches is the central focus of Jay and Kathy’s work as the territory where the majority of their work takes place is about one-third the country’s size and home to 400 language groups. Their goal is to train pastors and church leaders to reach hard-to-reach people groups using oral-intensive training methods.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program assists missionaries like the Shaftos in their work to train local believers to disciple others.
PRAY for wisdom for the Shaftos as they continue to train leaders in the Congo Basin for ministry and that the leaders will be bold in sharing the Gospel with their respective people groups.
