PALM APPEAL: Multiplying disciples

Has someone ever invested in you? Perhaps a teacher, mentor or a friend has supported you in your personal development. Or maybe you’ve invested your time or finances into seeing someone else grow.

PALM (Preparing Arab-world Leaders for Ministry) is a ministry of Pioneers with a special focus. They work with Arab Christians to develop discipleship and leadership skills in Arab leaders, so that they can disciple others.

With more resourcing, they will be able to provide more essential training and equipping of new disciples and leaders.

The impact

PALM host training events in Arab nations and provide theological teaching and guidance in planting churches. Many Arab believers testify to the far-reaching impact of these sessions. Take Ibrahim* from example:

This course is a great encouragement to me. I want to complete the lessons on my own and make this teaching available to many disciples.
Ibrahim, a house church leader in North Africa

This year, PALM is planning to hold four training events in the Arab world. Each training event will be held for around five days and the team are expecting up to fifteen local believers to attend.

As well as your vital prayers, your financial support will help up to sixty leaders benefit from this PALM training. Your investment will equip Arab believers to better follow the call of Christ, ‘to become fishers of men’ (Matthew 4:19).

How can you help?

The total cost of one training event is approximately £1,760. We understand that for many it may be difficult to contribute this full amount. However PALM have provided a breakdown of the costs, which are listed below.

These include:

  Training materials – £5 per attendee

  Accommodation costs – £30 per attendee

  Venue hire – £100 to hire a venue per training event

  Transport costs (including flights) – £400 for the local believers and leaders attending

Can you invest in the next wave of Arab leaders today?
