Hope for Haiti Foundation seeks to foster spiritual development by providing training to pastors throughout the remote villages of Haiti.
While pastors have a heart to serve their community, they often feel ill-equipped to do so without any formal training. HFHF partners with churches and church leaders throughout the United States to come alongside pastors in Haiti and provide training, support, and encouragement.
Currently, HFHF partners with churches throughout Zorangé, including one church plant. Pastor conferences are conducted annually for churches across Bainet providing training for pastors, children’s ministry, and worship music. Sermons are broadcast throughout Bainet over Radio Bigot. Our vision is a Bible Training School in rural Haiti, where pastors and missionaries can receive education and become equipped as leaders.
Want to get involved? Are you interested in supporting a church in Haiti? You can provide a pastor’s salary, training opportunities, and basic supplies for a church for $1,000 a month. Donate online or contact Jean Eloi at email@example.com for more information. Would you like to be involved with a pastor training conference? Join us on our next trip.
Quickfacts about Haiti
- Haiti is 50% Christian, 50% Voodoo
- Since rural communities travel on foot, church congregations meet every 5 -7 miles, with 60 or 70 people at each congregation
- With 50% illiteracy in Haiti, daily sermons and Bible readings over Radio Bigot are important for the community to access the Bible. Hope for Haiti Foundation provides “Bibles on tape” that have the New Testament recorded in Creole for those who cannot read.
