Ketly and Vital Pierre at their home
Ketley and Vital
work on the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua
to strengthen local churches and encourage existing churches to plant new ones.
One way they do this is by leading and coordinating seminars and workshops.
Through these sessions, pastors and leaders of local congregations learn how to
strengthen the ministries of their churches. Their ministry is a holistic,
"hands on" endeavor in which they walk and work alongside local
people, building relationships. They also work with people in local churches to
educate against drug abuse and drug trafficking.
They pastor a
church which they started and are involved in an exciting church planting
They also serve as
a link with American Baptist churches in the U.S. for volunteer groups. The
groups are matched with local ministries according to where they would be the
most effective. The Pierres
invite leaders and short-term missionaries, pastors, businessmen, teachers, and
professors to present seminars and workshops.
· Pray for Ketley and Vital as they serve in Nicaragua and continue their vital ministry of pastoring a dynamic congregation, ministering to their community and training Christian leaders.
