"So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase."
I Corinthians 3:7
Over the past 12 years, Parakaleo International has helped to plant and build 20 churches in Haiti and The Dominican Republic. We equip and train local, national pastors with further education and seminary if necessary, so they can effectively teach and lead. We also assist groups of believers to obtain property and build facilities to meet in. We strongly believe that the local congregation should be a part of building the church and evangelizing their own community. Practically speaking, this often looks like the local congregation coming together to move or break rocks, or carry water for construction. We believe that this working relationship helps to show our goal of "coming along side" to encourage and help other believers.
