Being a church planter is hard work. And if you’re planting a new church where people are unfamiliar with the Gospel and there’s little support, it gets even harder.

Sanyu trained church planters through a discipleship-mission training in Uganda. He’s seen the struggles and the challenges these men and women face as they seek to reach others with the Good News of Jesus. So he’s incorporated our Global Disciples small business training to help them use business to support their ministry and their families.

Sanyu said, “Some church planters confessed that they actually considered leaving the ministry because they couldn’t support their families. As we talk now, God has opened their eyes to doing business to support their families and many are now happy to continue in the ministry.”

Initially, Sanyu trained 15 church planters to look at what God had placed in their hands that could enable them to do some kind of income-generating business. Several started shops or salons, another has a bakery, and one started a small pharmacy.

One church planter thought he had nothing at all. Sanyu said, “He studied on what’s in your hands. He realized there were brickmakers in his community. He saw an opportunity to start a brickmaking business on his piece of land. He now makes and lays bricks, and his business has enabled him to meet his family expenses.”

Many of these church planters are reaching rural areas in Uganda, and they’re seeing God glorified through the new churches and the impact of these small businesses. It’s just a beginning. Sanyu said, “We need more small business training. Businesses open many avenues to share the Gospel, and help sustain our ministry and outreach efforts.”

Will you join us in praying for and supporting the efforts of Sanyu and many more disciples of Jesus around the world, who are training and equipping the Body of Christ to reach the least-reached with the Good News?

Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet. Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people, and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. We live in a time where many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and effective strategy of training and coaching, believers share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
