The vision and heart of the agricultural project was a Bulgarian, Stanimir Zahariev. He believed that if people had a way to grow food for themselves, and learn how to work the land, we could provide many opportunities for people. A church in England loved the idea, and then began the process to implement. We now have chosen the land, purchased the land, and will begin working the land and training Bulgarians and Roma on how to farm the land.
Discipleship Training/Church Plant Project
God connected us with a church in England that also had a heart of church planting and they came in to interview and implement the church plant program. It was a win, win, win situation. A national with a heart and vision for church plant, a church with the support, training, and resources, and us just to be the go between, the on-the-ground help to oversee the daily operations, trouble shoot, and communicate between the cultures which requires such trust and relationship to make sure all understand one another clearly and stay focused on the larger goal…. the people. Pastor Lyubcho has a big heart to form healthy leaders and create healthy churches. The Church Plant project consists of taking mature leaders from existing churches with their pastor's love and blessing and sending them to cities or villages and empowering them to take the gospel to where they know God is leading them (where they have a heart for a certain people group). Renewal Global and Renewal Christian Centre have provided structure and leadership from Adam Loughrey and committed to support and train for a two year period ending in 2016. Renewal will continue to come into Bulgaria every other month to impart, teach, and train these pastors. Chance and Dee Dee Galloway oversee leadership training and administration of the project. This training involves traveling to different areas on the other months to impart, teach, and train.
