One church member's needs have often been overlooked...
The pastor, missionary or full time worker may have urgent needs, but lack financial support. A recent NECF Malaysia Survey indicates that:-
- 19.4% of Pastors receive a salary of less than RM1,000 a month.
- 79.3% of Pastors say their income is inadequate or just enough for the present time.
- 8.2% of Pastors consider insufficient income as the greatest discouragement to them.
Pastors and Christian workers, like all of us, need the basic necessities of life and a buffer against emergencies.
