Two New Projects Just Got Started!
Wow! God has certainly blessed us at Books for Pastors!
We have just started two new projects:
Please pray for us to get all the details worked out (and believe me, there are a lot of details!), and to get the travel arrangements in place. If you can help us with the costs, please click the Donate button or link at the top of the page, and select the projects that you wish to support.
Thanks for being part of the team that is reaching the world for Christ!
22001ZW: Zimbabwe Africa Pastors’ Conferences [ultimeter id='1002']
Please join us in prayer for two critical needs:
- We need to raise about $5000 to cover the purchase of these books, and
- We need some way to get the Theology reference books from Chicago to South Africa. Many shipping companies charge very high rates for such small shipments (we need about 10 cases of the books, which way about 30 pounds each), so we are hoping to find some people who are flying to South Africa and who can carry one or two cases of books with them.
If you can help us with the costs of this project, please visit https://booksforpastors.com/donate to give your gift today!
Books for Pastors launched a major project into Nigeria, where we delivered 208 Africa Study Bibles and 120 copies of the Moody Bible Commentary for pastors there. This was the first phase of our work in Nigeria, where we expect to deliver more than 500 Study Bibles to the pastors.
God has been working through the ministry to bless the pastors, and to keep them safe. Even with all the violence and threats reported among Christians in Nigeria, our ministry moves ahead without issue, and we pray for the safety of the pastors as well as the salvation of those who would try to bring harm to the pastors.

More Bibles for Africa!
Books for Pastors is now multi-continental! We have had multiple requests for Bibles in Uganda, Nigeria and South Africa, to support the training at the Word of Life Bible Institutes and the National Theological College & Graduate School (NTCGS). As in Latin America, many of the pastors in Africa are serving their churches without a Bible, or with only pieces of a Bible that they can use.We met the initial request for 40 Bibles, and were able to provide more Bibles for these pastors. Your gifts helped us to help our African brothers in their churches.
Mexico Students are now Teachers!
In August, Don and Dr. Earl Parvin traveled to Tasquillo, Hidalgo, Mexico, where they presented theology and creationism training to more than 180 pastors and church leaders. They presented 60 Bibles and about 350 other books to these outstanding students, many of whom were overcome with emotion at this huge blessing!Since August, these leaders have taken their materials back to their churches and have given the training they received to their church families. The need for more books for these new students is great, and your gifts will help equip these churches in Mexico to reach their communities for Christ!

We Are Officially Multi-Continent!
The beginning of November 2019 marked the beginning of a new phase for Books for Pastors – we are now blessing pastors in Africa! An earlier post mentioned a request for Bibles to be given to pastors there who don’t have them, and as of today, we heard that 40 Bibles are in Kampala, Uganda and are ready to be picked up! According to Deogracious Muwanguzi, our primary contact in Uganda, “How can I start to show my gratitude to you for what you have just done for me and the pastors! I am sorry to actually inform you that your email has just moved my emotions to tears. This is all joy. Thank you so much my brother. We have been praying but not knowing who God will use to make it happen…. Your desire to send us Bibles has blown my understanding. Your desire to come and teach the pastors is an answer to my prayers. We are excited for your love for us. My goal for the school is to equip pastors in Uganda and beyond who are in their active ministry without training.”
While this first mission has been completed, we have someone in Nigeria that needs some Bibles, and there is another request in Uganda for nearly 200 more Bibles. Please check out our Projects section for more details!

A Weekend with Gene Getz
The weekend of October 12th, 2019 was a time to forge new friendships, renew some old one, and enjoy fellowship over a study of the Word of God at Faith Baptist Church in Prosperity, West Virginia.
During a Saturday afternoon men’s study, we were able to look into Getz’s best-selling book, “The Measure of a Man.” Taking the opening chapter, “Becoming a faithful man,” we looked at different Scripture passages and had some discussion about faithfulness.
Sunday provided an opportunity to experience the writing of New Testament books as we walked alongside the apostles in our imaginations as Pastor Getz brought the Scriptures to life. As his message concluded with a challenge to get into God’s Word more, we learned more about the work of Getz’s ministry during an interview with Pastor Chris Chesley of Faith Baptist Church.
Getz discussed the Life Essentials Study Bible (http://bibleprinciples.org) and the multi-media qualities of this one-of-a-kind Bible. With 1500 individual study notes, each having a QR code that launches a video by Getz that explains the principle in more depth, Bible readers will receive unparalleled teaching to help them live their lives better in light of God’s Word.
