IMB missionaries Matt and Gretchen Clay saw the passion rising as a group of North African pastors and lay ministers discussed ways to introduce their neighbors to the Gospel. But the Clays didn’t have the resources to invest at such a deep level. The missionaries called their partnering churches in Florida—Fruit Cove Baptist Church and Aspire Church—and asked for help in mentoring and empowering these believers to multiply and plant new churches.
These believers in North Africa needed those with experience, like Fruit Cove and Aspire, to listen to their ideas and step in as mentors. They wanted to be trained as a healthy, multiplying church.
Gary Webber, senior pastor of Aspire Church, remembers when no one in this area was even interested in Jesus, let alone sharing the Gospel. To see churches request training and be equipped to multiply and reach the lost is something they’ve prayed would happen for years.

The Cooperative Program (CP) takes the Gospel to the nations and the neighborhoods. Your financial support through the Cooperative Program provides opportunities for missionaries to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those who feel forgotten.
Pray for the Clays as they seek to take the Gospel to areas previously untouched by the good news of Jesus Christ.
