Saving Pakistan's Presbyterian Church

Only about 3 percent of Pakistanis are Christians. Yet, Presbyterian Church of Pakistan pastor Eric Sarwar sees opportunity in being a religious minority: “When you are surrounded by such kind of threats, your only hope, only refuge, only stronghold is your God. So church in Pakistan is strong in faith, active in evangelism.”

But since more than two-thirds of Sarwar's congregation cannot read or write, Sarwar's challenge is to reach them using resources they can hear, see or sing. He focuses on youth, church music and worship education for leaders.

“What he has catalyzed ... may inspire your congregation to move forward in faith to renew worship,” writes Joan Huyser-Honig, who authored an article for the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, a website devoted to promoting worship renewal in Christian faith communities.

Huyser-Konig chronicles Sarwar’s life, his church and the work he and his wife have put into organizing an international conference and into creating music- and theater-based educational material.
