PASTOR EDUCATION & SUPPORT
In our North American context, pastors have access to a wealth of Biblically sound institutions, events and resources that can help their growth and development in Reformed theology and living, and with God’s help, be a blessing to their people. We have been entrusted with these riches, not to keep to ourselves, but to share.
The Reformed church community in much of Eastern Europe remains weak and lacks many of the Reformation benefits we enjoy. It is the deep desire of COAH to stimulate, support and connect to this community where God leads and allows. To that end we:
- Regularly sponsor pastor’s conferences which provide a wonderful forum for instruction and fellowship.
- Support pastors financially, when appropriate, to allow them to concentrate on their studies and ministry.
- Assist Baltic Reformed Theological Seminary. BRTS is a small but faithful institution that seeks to support the Reformed Church of Latvia, and beyond.
- Support a ministry in Ukraine called ‘Men-to-Men’ (M2M), providing mentorship, support and fellowship for often isolated and over-burdened pastors.
- Publish the best of Reformed literature. See 'Literature Program' below for details.
