What’s happening in 2021? A lot! We will continue developing partnerships with churches in Michigan and the Midwest. In July and August – Lord willing – we will train 370 church leaders in Haiti. We are working hard on all the details of those conferences! Interested in serving with us at a training conference? Review the dates below then CLICK HERE.
May 2021-February 2022 – Full-time financial partnership development
Ken ended his time as interim pastor of First Baptist Church of Bad Axe on April 18. By God’s grace, we plan to devote full time for the next 9-10 months to building a base of financial support for PPI. A small salary draw from PPI complemented by our personal savings will provide for our needs for 9-10 months. CLICK HERE for more info on this step in developing PPI.
Do you know of churches that may be interested in training and resourcing indigenous pastors? Let us know HERE.
Our desire is for PPI to be fully funded in 2022, enabling us to lead the ministry full-time.
June 24-28, 2021 – Pastors Training in Atlanta, GA.
Yes, Atlanta! Along with several Haitian-American pastors, Ken will participate in training led by my friend, Chuck Ballard. Chuck is the Executive Director of African Pastoral Training (APT) Ministries. Not only will we have have opportunities to network with Haitian pastors, but also will get to talk with a representative of Dallas Seminary’s Department of International Missions about accreditation of PPI training courses. Win-win!
July 14-30, 2021 – Pastors Training in Ouanaminthe AND Cap Haitien, Haiti (Team fee – $2100 FULL)
Lord willing, we will offer TWO training conferences in July for 220 Haitian church leaders using the Thompson Chain Reference Bible. We will lead Course 2 – Our Powerful Gospel in Cap Haitien and Course 1 – The Message and the Messenger in Ouanaminthe. Please pray for and support these training opportunities!
August 9-16, 2021 – Pastors Training in Northern Haiti (Team fee – $1200)
The Lord directed us to a special opportunity to partner with EBAC/Olive Cove. As part of EBAC’s 50th anniversary of Kingdom work in Haiti, we will offer PPI training to 150 pastors in their network of churches in Haiti and the DR. Click HERE to read more about it. This is short notice, but Ken would like 1-2 U.S. team members to assist him in this conference.

Nov 15-19, 2021 – Evangelical Theological Society, 73rd Annual Meeting, Fort Worth, Texas.
Ken has been a member of ETS for over 20 years. He often attends regional and annual conferences of the ETS to be sharpened and challenged in God’s Word. And he has presented papers in ETS conference workshops. This year’s theme, “Wealth and Poverty,” is especially relevant to PPI’s mission of encouraging, training and resourcing church leaders in Haiti and other developing countries.
Feb 25-March 5, 2022 – Pastors Training in Gonaives, Haiti (Team fee – $1700)
We made the painful decision to postpone our training conference in Feb 2021 in Gonaives because of the new CDC international travel guidelines. Read more HERE. As the Lord enables us, we will go to this new city in Feb 2022. Hear a Haitian pastor talk about our training.
