Support


I find my position of fundraising and mission support in the writing of Luke,

 After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out;  Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod’s household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means.

Jesus was supported in mission by his family and friends. No telethons. No mass marketing. No branding. Just Him do what He was called to do. If it worked for Jesus, it will work for anyone. 

Many ministries spend more on fundraising than they do on evangelism. It is sad when you really think about it. They become professional charities.

Leonard Ravenhill once warned a pastor that we was in danger of being professional ministries and not passionate ones.

I am not a pastor and with that comes little visible support. Most my support comes people like you.
