As a ministry worker, raising personal support can be a daunting task. What if a friend rejects your requests for funds? Why do you feel like a beggar? Is raising support even Biblical?
Raising support doesn’t have to be intimidating. It’s not about money and asking people to give; it’s 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 work.
Support raising can also be uncomfortable for your potential donors, but the pressure subsides when they focus on asking God where He wants them to invest. The Lord will provide them direction, helping them evaluate individual invitations for support more clearly.
Instead of going into support 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. It is a God Ask.
