Raising Support For Missions

Introduction

  1. Whose job is it to provide the needed funding for our missions?
  2. Is there a Biblical basis for fund raising?

BACKGROUND:

Defining the context of discussion
In this discussion, mission specifically refers to the non-profit organization whose core objective is reaching out with The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the various unreached peoples groups across Ghana (and beyond). The Great Commandment and The Great Commission remain our points of reference.

God’s Posture to all His Children

  • God has promised all His Children His provision- Phil 4:19 ; Psalm 50:10
  • God has promised to bless all His children –Gen.12:1-3; Numbers 6:24

Essentials to Fundraising in Ministry

A. THE CHURCH COMMUNITY

  • Be sure of your calling. He certainly will be faithful in supporting you. Gen. 12:1-9, Josh.1:9, Isa. 41 :8-10,Mk,3:13-19;Jh. 15: 16 -17
  •  You are in a faith journey with God; constantly trust Him for daily supply. Cultivate an attitude of contentment with Gods provision for you at every stage. Deut 8:1-4 ; 1 Kings 17: 1-16
  •  The call is one modesty and moderation in all things – Jesus ensured that not even the left overs were wasted when he fed the multitude.
  • Do not be afraid or anxious – Lk. 18:1-8; Isa. 55:10-11, Ps. 55:22 Biblical Models of Funding
