PAVE Ministry for Ethnic Minorities

PAVE participants are pastors with a need to revitalize their churches. They come from a variety of cultures, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds. Training, resources, certifications, and travel expenses for pastors of ethnic minorities will be provided as PAVE expands to other regions of Texas.

This is a new project for the Texas Baptists Church Health Strategy Department. Their desired outcome is that at least 10 pastors will be equipped in revitalization, impacting over 1,000 people.

  • Ask the Lord to bring healing to congregations who have experienced the pain of a dying church.

  • Beseech God to bring unity and protect churches from division in the revitalization process.

  • Pray for God to give Texas Baptists and the pastors of the churches impacted by this project “complete knowledge of His will, and spiritual wisdom and understanding, so their lives honor and please the Lord, and produce every kind of good fruit while they grow as they learn to know God better and better.” (Colossians 1:9-12)
