Pastor Support Project (PSP)

Fellowship of Hope Church’s goat farm – to generate a sustainable future income for our pastors.

FELLOWSHIP OF HOPE CHURCHES

The Fellowship of Hope Church (FOHC) in Cambodia commenced in 2007. Today there are more than 70 churches in the network serving the poorest people of Cambodia. Most of the population in Cambodia live on less than $3 per day.

THE NEED

The majority of these churches are in rural villages where the people are subsistence farmers. The pastors of these churches also farm crops or animals in order to earn enough to feed their families. This means that they need to attend full time to their farming activities leaving very little time to invest in pastoring the community. Given the poverty of the people in the churches the weekly offering only covers the basic costs of running the church and does not contribute toward the needs of the pastor or their family.

THE PASTOR SUPPORT PROJECT

The purpose of the Pastor Support Project is to generate local income through the setting up of a goat farm which will provide the FOHC pastors with:

  1.  a reasonable income to enable pastors to invest more time in ministry and at the same time provide adequate support to their families,
  2.  regular pastoral and ministry training,
  3.  resources to facilitate the growth of the church.

THE GOAT FARM

Developing a goat farm will produce an ongoing supply of goats that can be sold to the local market where there is an unmet and increasing demand for goat meat.

A pilot goat farm project has been run by our NGO partner Serve Cambodia, for the last two years. The Fellowship of Hope Church has worked closely with them during this time. A lot of research and development has been done and the FOHC is now seeking to launch their own goat farm project.

SPONSOR A PASTOR FOR AUD$700 FOR 4 YEARS

The goal is to raise AUD$140,000 over the next 4 years to establish a sustainable goat farm that will provide ongoing funds from year 5 to support 50 pastors.

Year 1    Purchase Land                                 AUD$35,000

Year 2    Land Development                          AUD$35,000

Year 3    Operation Development                  AUD$32,000

Year 4    Purchase of Goats                           AUD$38,000

If 50 people or churches sponsor one pastor for AUD$700 per year (AUD$60/month) for the next four years the project will be fully functional and will provide a sustainable future income for each of the pastors in the FOHC churches.
