Product Description

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!

Steve Shadrach's The God Ask is destined to be one of the classic rock-solid books on raising personal support. Every Christian worker and missions executive needs to include this book in their support-raising training curriculum. As Steve says, we are mobilizing people, not money. The God Ask will help you adjust your lens of faith so that you can clearly see that God's net worth has not changed since the day of creation, and He is committed to funding His mission.
-Ellis F. Goldstein
National Director, Ministry Partner Development for Cru, the U.S. ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ

Full of practical tools and biblical foundations, The God Ask turns our focus away from our fears and toward faith in God's abundance. Shadrach inspires us toward excellence, courage, and humility. A must-have resource for anyone engaged in support raising!

-Coach Les Steckel

Asking for support is an aspect of ministry many Christian workers don't look forward to. Steve Shadrach takes the edge off of what may be the tensest moment for a future servant of God. It is biblical and influenced by his many years in ministry.
-Tommy Nelson
Senior Pastor, Denton Bible Church

Steve Shadrach's The God Ask is outstanding and engaging. He builds a sound biblical basis for raising personal support for ministry. Shadrach's own study and experience as a "faith missionary" makes the book captivating. The God Ask is integral to the vision of funding and clearly practical in what our part is and how it works. Everyone in ministry needs to read this book. If every Christian read this book, there would be plenty of money to support God's purposes throughout the world.
-Dennis Gaylor
National Director, Chi Alpha Campus Ministries, USA

A must-read for every missionary. Steve trumpets the clear truth that God will fully fund every bit of your calling you are willing to trust Him for. Then he shows you how. He gives the deep, biblical foundation for realizing God's provision, but also the proven, practical steps to enable anyone - even an introvert like me - to do their part in confidently seeing that provision become a reality.
-Mike D. Riggins
Missionary Deployment Coordinator, North American Mission Board, SBC

The God Ask is biblical, practical, and relevant. It will revolutionize your walk and your work in building and sustaining your partnership development team so you can have maximum impact in your life, family, and ministry!
-Dave Meyers
Director of Development, New Tribes Mission USA

I have known Steve Shadrach for over twenty-five years, and he has always focused on getting the gospel to more and more people around the world. He has a passion and commitment to train workers with excellent God-centered tools for funding their ministry. These tools have benefited Christian workers around the world, including many with Campus Outreach. The God Ask is one excellent resource.
