PLANTING, EQUIPPING, BUILDING and GROWING THE CHURCH
We are working with FIPEC in implementing their contextualized church planting movement. 20 Colombian Covenant pastors and leaders have gone through Church Planting “basic training”. Support teams are being put together to launch the plans.
We are also participating with FIPEC in developing existing church plants. Strengthening the existing foundation of Colombian Churches allows the Colombian Covenant to keep extending itself out into the world.
We are exploring how to include the larger Covenant Church in the world in the Church Planting strategy. Connections are being made with the Covenant Church Planting movement in the U.S.
Through Julio and Katie Isaza the Colombia Mission is partnering with the emerging Colombia Covenant youth generation and young professionals with church planting strategies to reach these generations for Christ.

The desire is to equip all to be disciples of Jesus Christ, ministers of the Word and leaders of all age groups who minister in the Covenant, the community and in the world. We are looking for help for scholarships for pastors and leaders who are studying in the theology, missions, children’s workers and social program administration programs.
The Covenant Mission is also working together with the Colombian Covenant in the purchase of materials and scholarships for attendance at ministry oriented workshops and conferences being offered by local ministry groups.

THANK YOU FOR PARTNERING WITH US!
Over twenty years ago, the Board of Covenant World Mission determined that 10% should be budgeted for and included as a part of each project. This 10% covers the direct costs our missionaries encounter in their role as process brokers with local country of service foundations, national churches and ministries. The actual costs of bringing people together for meetings to put their dreams into project proposals, keeping communication channels open, promoting which may include printing, assembling, mailing and other distribution costs, receiving donations, accounting for and receipting the donations, safely transferring the funds and monitoring their use to see that they are managed well and reporting on their use, all add up to more than 10% of any one project. The excess cost not covered by the 10% is absorbed into our Covenant World Mission budget via country budgets and we then seek funds from elsewhere to offset these costs. In the future, you should anticipate the 10% as an integral part of each project. The fee is applied to each gift received for all approved projects.
