Pastoral Support

AS our risen Lord Jesus Christ commissioned His disciples by saying, ‘… make disciples of all nations,’ (Matthew 28:18).

WE see the primary instrument of God’s choice to do this work of ‘discipling the nations’ is the local church the very body of Christ.

BY Scriptural and theological teaching at the congregational level that reinforces the holy ‘faith which was once for all delivered to the saints’ (Jude 3), commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also’ (2 Timothy 2:2).

N2N is an opportunity for supporting churches in practical fellowship establishing sound church missionary relationships that are practical hands-on church planting ministry with a church that is committed to biblical principles of reformed theology and Presbyterian Ministry.

This biblical principle of partnership was Illustrated as Jesus’ disciples were fishing as Luke records‘So they signalled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both boats so that they began to sink’ (Luke 5:7).

Special projects sometimes becomes a focus of the wider ministry of IRFA. As a ‘fellowship of churches’ we become con- cerned for particular needs that local churches become overwhelmed by spe- cial circumstances. From time to time in the spirit of the apostle Paul when he took up a special collection for the churches in Judea who were suffering from a famine.

‘Then the disciples, each according to his ability, determined to send relief to the brethren dwelling in duty. This they also did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul’ (Acts 11: 29
