The Truth About Ministry Fundraising

For some reason this subject is on my mind these days.

I ran across a helpful article to guide us through the maze of seemingly endless appeals that come in letter form day after day.

Here is a sample of what the author says:

But I am suggesting we become informed givers. Don’t be a ministry zombie and give on impulse – for any reason. Give because you’ve researched a ministry, believe in what it’s doing in the world, have confirmed its integrity and track record, and then prayed about the gift.

Whether you are considering giving to OGC’s capital campaign on May 23 or some other ministry, this article has some helpful insights to guide you along the way. I commend it to you.

You can read the piece here.

  1. This is a great article! Thanks for posting it for us to read and consider as we pray about our collective involvement with the work at OGC.

    Not to be too pragmatic or “marketing” oriented, but is there any consideration underway to add a section of our website that addresses the building program, the plans, etc…so that those around the world that follow our progress can keep up-to-date?

    The message on Sunday was powerful, and has prompted much thought in our home about our role.

    Looking forward to HUGE things ahead!

  2. Glad you found it helpful, Jeff. We are indeed working on a section of our website for this purpose. Hope to have it up soon. Thanks for your post!
