Our Vision

In the early 1900s, missionary William Borden asked, “If you see ten men trying to lift a log, nine of them on the light end and one on the heavy end, where will you step in to help?” There is 1 pastor for every 250 people in the United States of America, but there is only 1 pastor for every 450,000 people in the rest of the world. Around 80% of the pastors outside of the United States have little or no formal theological education. 

Harlan Betz believes God is calling him to invest his life helping at the heavy end by teaching and mentoring the “pastors of churches,” the “teachers of teachers,” and the “leaders of leaders.”  Therefore, Harlan is stepping away from pastoring one church in the United States and stepping into a role where he can teach and mentor young people, college students, and church leaders of multiple churches in Haiti.
