Fighting a different kind of poverty
There are many good organisations working to relieve appalling human suffering all around the globe.
But few groups are focused on fighting the poverty of Christian books in the developing world, to equip leaders in local churches, and to aid Christian discipleship.
Dramatic growth but few resources
We rejoice that over the past hundred years the Lord has been building his church across the world. You may be surprised to know that 7 out of every 10 new believers now live in Africa, Asia, or Latin America!
But this growth in Christians has outstripped the number of churches worldwide led by trained pastors.
Most of the 5000 pastors that we at GBM Lit are in contact with will have few, if any, books to work with. Many will just own a Bible and hymn book.
Inevitably, from a human perspective, this dramatically impacts their effectiveness in teaching and preaching.

with good resources. With many pastors in the two-
Managed by Kester Putman, GBM Lit arranges for these books to be sent across the world; the pastors who receive them are delighted to get such great tools to enhance their ministry in preaching and making disciples.
