Our partners at Mission Travel have provided this great resource from the Fully Funded Academy.
Our partners at GiveSendGo are passionate about helping Christians raise funds for their ministries and other needs. Per their website:
GiveSendGo is meant to give Christians the opportunity to be supported by the body of Christ. A place for the body of Christ to get out from their comfortable pews and support people in God's family that they might not have ever known about. Why wait 'til heaven to rub shoulders, worship and encourage your brothers and sisters in Christ.
We have the opportunity now.
So it is our hope as you have read this, that you understand what we believe God wants GiveSendGo.com to be. A place for Christians. A place to fund hope. A place to pray and connect with the body of Christ around the world. A place not only to raise money but a place for givers , senders and goers to work together to be the light of the world.
Please join with us praying for campaigns diligently, giving to campaigns as God leads, and sharing campaigns to spread the word.
Funding Your Ministry helps ministry workers and their partners break through the financial barriers holding them back from full-time ministry. Whether you are experienced at fundraising or just beginning, Fundraising Your Ministry will help you:
Both fundraisers and their supporters will gain valuable insights from Scott Morton as he shares his own struggles, failures, and victories in raising support. Learn from his experience in this comprehensive guide and find the financial freedom you need to respond fully to God's call.
As a ministry worker, raising support can be a daunting task. It doesn't have to be intimidating though. It isn't about money or asking people to give. It is about looking to God to provide for you. He has given you a vision for ministry, and now you get to invite others into that vision. Your job is to pray and work hard to discover those whom the Lord has already prepared to invest in you and your ministry. God has done His work. Now it's time for you to do yours.
A case in point: Nehemiah was very nervous about meeting with the wealthiest, most powerful man on the planet. He was asking King Artaxerxes to fund his Jerusalem restoration project. But when it came time to make his appeal, this lowly cupbearer first looked up to the Person who really provides resources. At the moment of truth, Nehemiah lifted his heart and made The God Ask. In Nehemiah 2:4 he describes the exchange: "Then the king said to me, 'What would you request?' So I prayed to the God of heaven."
Instead of going into appointments fearing what your fellow man will say, you can have confidence that God is superintending the whole process. This book will help you embrace the fact that this is not a Man Ask. No. It is a God Ask!
