In the typical rural setting, attending to a rural church is not actual employment. the village church barely survives financially; it therefore cannot stand the burden of supporting the pastor financially. Local pastors therefore set aside time in their busy days to work and fend for their families. Unreached Africa understands the challenges of a local pastor making ends for their families serving God.
Congregations are often up to 80 km away from the pastor's house. If a pastor has to attend to church business there would barely be enough time for him to tend his garden to secure food for the family and for him to attend to personal matters.With the gift of a motorbike, the pastors save a lot of time travelling and attend to the church congregation and his family as well.Equipping a pastor with a motor bike enables them serve their flock better and also help the pastor to travel with his family to church each Sunday.
A gift of a motorbike is a miracle to these devoted men and women of God.
While they stand in for the church members, pastors and church leaders have limited spare time to attend to commercial activities for their family income.As their families keep growing, their financial demands keep increasing.The ministry sets out to support the pastors financially to complement their family incomes such that the pastors will devout their productive time to the church without necessarily abandoning their families.
