"We never test the resources of God until we attempt the impossible" -- F. B. Meyer
"We must do something!
Expect great things from God! Attempt great things for God!"
-- William Carey,
"Anything God has ever done He can do now. Anything He has ever done anywhere, He can do here! Anything God has ever done for anyone He can do for us" - A. W. Tozer
The purpose of Abide in Christ is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and make disciples of all the nations, teaching them the Word of God, the Bible; provide Bible based curriculum for rural pastors and church leaders; shall educate by conducting seminary extension courses, workshops, seminars, revivals, Bible conferences, evangelism training to effectively equip and train leadership; actively participate in evangelism and discipleship of local communities throughout the world; to promote, participate in and conduct evangelistic and discipleship ministries worldwide; will educate the Christian community and provide financial assistance to pastors, national missionaries and ministries. Our goal is to evangelize, disciple and provide local pastors or church leadership with the basic knowledge and skills that are necessary to effectively fulfill their biblical responsibilities in the local church. At the end of our courses we want them to be able as pastors and teachers to prepare God's people for service, so the body of Christ may be built up to the glory of God the Father.
SEMINARY EXTENSION PROGRAM
In January 2005, Wil taught the first in a series of ten courses to begin the new Seminary Extension program in Danli, Honduras. We will provide five courses this year and five next year. Pastors of evangelical churches in other parts of Honduras and Nicaragua are asking for these courses to be taught in their town and villages.
Pray for the Lord's guidance as we seek to provide a cost effective, high quality, professional education experience for rural pastors, evangelists and church workers in Honduras. These humble, financially deprived, dedicated servants of the Lord have had little, if any, formal training at a Bible college or seminary level.
We participate with conservative, evangelical Bible believing organizations in planting churches, discipleship of rural communities, and in some church construction. Pastors and church leaders of other evangelical groups are invited study with us. The course material has been prepared from a perspective which represents the traditional mainstream Christian theology and is conservative, evangelical and Bible-centered. The Bible is the required curriculum content. We provide the students free of charge textbooks for each course. Statement of Faith of Abide in Christ.

WIL & ANN POUNDS
These evangelism projects are designed with a clear focus on church planting with Honduran pastors and missionaries in needy towns and villages. Evangelism teams are at the heart of world missions. “When you are on mission with God, He does the work.”
Wil served as Field Director for the Honduras Baptist Dental Mission in Honduras. Previous to God directing them to Honduras, Wil and Ann served as missionaries in Panama, Ecuador and pastored churches in the U. S. They made numerous trips to Honduras with medical and evangelism teams before assuming their new field responsibilities. He and Ann are graduates of William Carey College, Azusa Pacific University and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Partnership missions gives you an opportunity to become personally involved in what God is doing around the world.
Pray that our Honduran pastors and church leaders will be led by the Spirit to the locations where God is at work, and that we will be alert to the leading of the Holy Spirit in each of these ministries. We receive many requests for these courses in neighboring countries. Please pray for the Lord's guidance, direction and provision.
When God calls, He provides. Hudson Taylor observed, “God’s work, done in God’s way, will receive God’s supply.” We have watched Him open doors for teams and then almost startle them by the way He had made it all possible.
|It is wonderful being involved in something that will still be worthwhile a million years from now!”|
