The Mali Evangelism Fund contributes to the education of pastors in the Kayes Region. As many of the pastors get older and retire, it is vital that committed young men be trained to replace them. Each student attends for five years at the cost of around $1000 per person altogether (what a bargain!). The church tries to send two or three at a time. If finances permit, the Evangelism Fund also subsidizes continuing education opportunities for active pastors, such as conferences and seminars.
