Describe the need affecting community
The UMC in Latvia is in the re-birthing process. Most congregations are quite small and cannot afford to pay their pastor from the available funds in their control. The central pastors salary fund ensures a predictable and timely source of money for the pastors. The UMC's goal is to slowly transfer all responsibilities of providing the pastors a living wage to the individual congregations as they grow and their capabilities increase.
