This fund is in place to help support French pastors in young churches. While pastors are asked to raise most of their own salary needs, additional funds are still required. As time goes on the church will take on more of the financial need.
Churches planted by missionaries are not always able to support their own pastor.
Having funds available to place a French pastor in a new area or a young church would contribute to church planting and growth of young churches.
The church association distributes available funds on a digressive basis, with the new church taking on more of the pastor’s support each year. These funds would enable a small church to call a French pastor and to grow under his leadership.
Full support would be around $2,000 per month.
