Working with partner churches around the world Pioneer Clubs has been reaching children for Christ for more than 75 years. Just recently we have formed a partnership with local churches throughout Cuba and have the opportunity to come alongside of them to reach thousands of children in the coming years.
This summer Pioneer Clubs will be taking a team of 10-12 people to Cuba to provide practical training to 40-60 children’s ministry workers. Besides providing instruction in children’s ministry, we will also be training them to use our Spanish club curriculum which will include hand-on training with children in their community. In addition to training, we also plan to provide these churches with enough curriculum, awards and club apparel to serve 500 children in the first year of club programs in Cuba.
What an amazing opportunity to serve children and churches in a country that has so few resources—and even less training—available. Our goal is to build a long-term partnership to help the next generation of the Cuban church learn to follow Christ in every aspect of life.
We invite you to join with us in this endeavor. Here’s how you can help:
Pray for the Cuba Trip
Efforts like this must be bathed in prayer. We are hoping that each of our clubs programs will commit to pray for us as we undertake this ministry opportunity. To download a detailed prayer list, simply click on the Prayer List button below.
Support the Cuba Trip Financially
To equip children’s ministry workers in Cuba with the training and resources they need to reach children for Christ, we will need to raise a minimum of $50,000 prior to our trip this summer. Your club or church can join with us by hosting a fundraising event to help support this unique opportunity. If you would like to be part of this effort, please click the link below to fill out our online form. We will get you some ideas for some fun and easy ways to raise funds for our effort in Cuba.
Join the Cuba Team
Finally, consider joining the team that is going to Cuba. We would love for our team to include those who are currently serving in a club program at one of our partner churches. If you, or someone from your club, would like more information about this opportunity, please email our President, Brian Ondracek, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. The team needs to be finalized by early March, so time is of the essence.
We so appreciate your partnership in ministry and desire to reach children for Christ. It is our hope that each of our partner churches will take part in supporting this trip both in prayer and with your finances.
