Agricultural Training in Moldova
Agricultural Training for Bi-vocational Ministry Leaders
Another UDG ministry funded by GIFT is an agricultural training program for ministry students. Most pastors ministering in Moldova or in the majority Muslim countries of Central Asia that many UDG students come from must be bi-vocational in order to sustain themselves. That is, along with pastoring a church or leading a ministry, most work another full-time job. The goal is to equip students to provide for their families and use their farming successes to share the gospel in their communities. UDG now can offer agricultural education in both the classroom and on the farm. Students will receive training in greenhouse vegetables and flowers, dairy farming, raising beef animals, general livestock, and orchards.
