One of the most effective ways to create sustainable real world change is by investing in leaders. Why? Because leadership matters, especially in the poorest of areas where there is a lack of clean water, education, mentoring, and other opportunities you and I have access to every day.
This is especially true in Haiti where more than half of the population lives on less than $1 per day. Many poor Haitian communities depend on leadership from the church to provide daily needs. The community expectation of church pastors is much higher than in the United States. Haitian Pastors are more than just spiritual leaders. They are the bridge from their community to the rest of the country and even the world. Their responsibilities range from job creation, education, and even health care for their congregation and larger community. All of these critical responsibilities must be met using considerably fewer resources than our American Pastors.
Never Settle is committed to developing and supporting leaders for the next generation. For that reason, we have made the decision to invest in pastor leaders partnered with the Global Orphan Project in Haiti. We will help fund several pastor retreats, conferences, and training sessions per year in Haiti. These conferences will train the front-line leaders for their task at hand but it will also provide much needed renewal, refreshment, and rest from the hard conditions that they minister in every day.
Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger than themselves and leave a mark on this world. You can implement real world change today right from your living room by supporting these men that make huge sacrifices every day to help make a difference in the poorest of regions in the world. You change a leader, you change the world. Invest in leadership. It matters.
