“For ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.‘
But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in
him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard
about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone
tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being
sent?” ROMANS 10:13-15
If you are presented with the opportunity to financially invest
in a Christian ministry or worker, I encourage you to seriously
consider it. By giving and praying, you become a strategic
ministry “sender,” enabling and launching that Christian worker
into their calling to focus on impacting others for Christ.
Many Christian workers all over the world personally raise the
funds needed to cover their salary and ministry expenses. This
approach is commonly called “personal support raising” or
“ministry partner development.” The Christian worker meets
with family, friends, churches or referrals given to them to share
their ministry vision and extend an invitation to each one to
partner with them by financially investing. This is not the method
used by all ministries, but tens of thousands of organizations
around the planet do utilize this decentralized approach of
requiring each staff person to take full responsibility to acquire
the necessary funds to do their ministry.
The purpose of this booklet is to give you more information,
including the biblical basis for this funding model, and hopefully
answer questions you might have. If you meet with a Christian
worker and they are asking you to support their ministry, you will
be better informed to respond to their presentation.
While Jesus certainly commands us to “give to those who ask of
us” in Luke 6:30, He also wants us to steward well the funds He’s
provided us. So as you consider whether to invest in a particular
ministry or Christian worker, ask some key questions. Here are
five to read and pray through.
