How many called and enthusiastic potential missionaries never make it to the field because they are scared off by having to raise support? How many Christian leaders abandon ministry plans because of fundraising frustration.
This book addresses the obstacles for those who raise personal support and those who send them. Whether you are experienced at fundraising or just starting out, Funding Your Ministry will help answer your questions and put you on the biblical path for recruiting and maintaining donor support.
Also intended for pastors, Christian leaders, missions-committee members, and others interested in helping missionaries become fully funded, Funding Your Ministry is written from the author's own struggles, failures, and victories. Scott Morton, on staff with the Navigators since 1970, began his fundraising journey in the second year of his ministry. Frustrated by living at 60% of their budget, his wife gently challenged him: "Are you going to support this family or not?" Since discovering for himself the biblical attitudes and skills needed to raise personal support, Morton has helped hundreds of other missionaries and ministry leaders turn their fundraising around through the Navigators' popular fundraising schools.
