Why does building a home for a Bethanie Pastor in a community matter?
On average the cost to rent housing each year for a pastor and his family can be as much as $12,000.00 a year. This is a huge expense and burden on the ministry, as well as the pastor and his family. By building a house on property already owned by Bethanie Mission of Haiti, that burden can be eliminated to allow the ministry to focus it’s monthly finances in targeting evangelism and assistance to those in need. This results in greater growth for the church in a community. Typically a pastor’s home can be built for what it cost to rent a home for one year.
The average cost associated with building a pastor’s home is $12,000+/- depending on location.
(Cost includes purchase of all materials needed for project from start to finish)

HELP US ESTABLISH A PRESENCE IN A HURTING COMMUNITY
Short term mission teams can come to build a church in a hurting community, that becomes a beacon of light for all who live there.
Constructing a church building in the heart of a community is a powerful tool for the Kingdom of God in Haiti. It serves as a rallying point in the community for many positive things. Communities are transformed when they finally are able to have a gathering place for worship. It has a ripple effect that can literally be seen after it becomes established. There is a church presence in a community meeting in homes before there is ever a building, but time has shown us that growth, as well as influence, increases once an official building is established.
