We are happy to be partnering with pastor Pandu Maddala of Victory Baptist Association as he works with pastors in India to reach communities for Jesus. Most pastors in India pastor more that one church and they walk wherever they go. They are in need of 100 bicycles to help 100 pastors take the Word of God from village to village. The Catawba River Association is working to meet this need through the gifts of churches and individuals. If you, your Church, or Sunday School class would like to donate a bike (pedals for pastors) please send a check for $80 to CRBA and put on the memo line “Pedals for Pastors”. Every dollar collected will be sent to India and will be used to purchase bicycles.
For more information on this and other trips please call our CRBA office at 828-437-0137. You can also email the missions team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The missions team consists of a number of members truly dedicated to assisting and encouraging our churches to go on mission with Jesus and one another. If they can help your church organize or improve your missions ministry to women or men, please let us know. We want to come and share with your church regarding missions. Here are a few ideas of clinics, workshops or classes we are willing to lead for you free of charge:
