MBC “Pastors’ CARE-Link”

Our Vision:
MBC seeks to provide encouragement and support for the well-being of our Baptist Pastors through a process of CARE, CONCERN, & COUNSEL.

Goals:
We endeavour to:

  1. Initiate the Pastors’ Appreciation Day in Member Churches
  2. Provide Financial Assistance to Pastors in their time of need
  3. Provide Care & Counsel for our Pastors
    1. 1. To initiate the Pastors’ APPRECIATION DAY.
      1. MBC will encourage all Baptist Churches to set aside a specific Sunday in October every year to appreciate their Church Pastors. This will be done through the Church’s Board/Council/Leaders for their Pastors.
      2. MBC will provide, if needed, a full Sunday Service programme for the “Pastors’ Appreciation Day”.
      3. A special acknowledgment & appreciation letter from MBC will be sent out to the Pastors on this occasion.
  1. 2. To provide *FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE to Pastors in times of need.
    1. For Medical Assistance to a Pastor: MBC will offer financial assistance of RM3000.00 be given as a one-time love gift to Pastors needing medical assistance in serious ailments, operations & life-threatening medical conditions.
    2. In the event of the Death of a Pastor: a love-gift of RM1000.00 is given to his/her family members.

NB. For your information:

  1. *MBC desires to complement our Churches role in caring for their pastors. As such, we will give assistance through financial help as a provider of last resort. All Financial Assistance listed above will only be made available as & when MBC has the funds to allocate for such purposes.
  2. To note: In wanting to care for all full-time servants of God, NECF has come out with a comprehensive Financial Aid Plan as listed in the “NECF Foundation.”(Refer to NECF Foundation handbook, pg.14)
  1. 3. To provide CARE & COUNSEL to our Pastors in their time of emotional and/or spiritual need.
    1. MBC seeks to come alongside our Pastors when they are discouraged, eg. in the event of “burn-out”, loss of focus/vision, need for restoration, etc.
    2. To provide pastoral care and counselling in said times.
    3. To provide a place of refuge and solace, if needed, with the resources drawn from the MBTS and other partners.

Management:

Finances for the MBC “Pastors’ CARE Fund” will be raised from the kind and generous donations from all member Churches and well-wishers. We seek to share this with all our Baptist Churches and request their contribution in the assistance & welfare of all our Pastors.

The “Pastors’ CARE Fund” will be governed by a Pastors’ Care Committee that comprises of a team of capable Lay-Leaders (pref. 3 persons) with the MBC General-Secretary as ex-officio. Together, they will make suitable recommendations to the EXCO for approval of decisions made.

May the LORD grant His grace and manifold blessings to this specific purpose to bring encouragement to all our Pastors in our Baptist Churches.
