Excerpt


Raising support is one of the most difficult challenges facing Christians in ministry. Fears of rejection, concerns about biblical validity, feelings of not being deserving, anxiety about limited resources can all block us from obtaining the means to fulfill our calling.

This book both affirms that God uses the Christian community to send us into ministry and demystifies the process. This down-to-earth handbook

  • offers a clear, biblical perspective
  • gives step-by-step instructions on how to assemble the tools unique to each person's support-raising task
  • helps you know what range of gift to ask of a potential donor
  • outlines the how-tos of holding a home promotional event
  • tells the four predictors of church support
  • is aware of the diverse ethnic contexts of today's new mission candidates
  • includes a chapter by a woman for women on their unique challenges in support raising
  • shows how to build a base in a strong church when you don't have one
  • explains exactly why people do and don't give

    The relational strategy in this book has proven valuable for those who serve Christ on campus, in the city or in other special ministries at home or abroad. It is not necessarily the quickest approach to raising money, but it is the most lasting and fulfilling for those who give and receive.

    Excerpt


    Is there hope in this era of cynicism? Jimmy Long, a campus minister for more that twenty-five years, is convinced that we are in the middle of a societal hurricane. As our culture moves further into postmodernity, now is the time of enormous and rapid change. How do we "do church" in such an era? How do we reach the lost? How do we communicate hope? In this book Long traces the connections between postmodernism and the emerging generations--Generation X and the millennial generations--highlighting implications for evangelism and discipleship. What emerges is a compelling strategy for ministry that will appeal to a generation starved for a sense of belonging.

    Excerpt


    This book demonstrates that, despite much evidence to the contrary, there are still Christian colleges and universities of high academic quality that have also kept their religious heritages publicly relevant. Respected scholar Robert Benne explores how six schools from six different religious traditions have maintained "quality with soul." These contructive case studies examine the vision, ethos, and personnel policies of each school, showing how - and why - its religious foundation remains strong.
