A 4-week Immersion on the nuts-n-bolts of how to raise support for your new church or new missional project through partnership.
About this Immersion
In partnership with The V3 Movement and Reliant Mission: In order to advance the mission of God, financial resources are a necessity. While there are many philosophies and strategies surrounding the topic of support raising, there is a significant shift mentally and in our hearts from typical fundraising to building a ministry team. It is easy to view support raising as a means to an end but the reality is it is a ministry in itself. The Apostle Paul knew this and viewed his supporters as partners with him. During our time we will look at developing a Ministry Team vs. Fundraising. What is it, different ways to approach it, and what are some practical tools to navigate through during your support raising journey.
The Flow (Wed, Oct 14-Nov 4th, 2-3pm ET):*
- Week 1 – Foundations of Support Raising – An introduction into ministry team development and biblical support for the process.
- Week 2 – Invitation into Partnership – How you invite others into a sustainable partnership?
- Week 3 – Financial Realities – The current financial landscape of new churches.
- Week 4 – How do I start – What are the first steps that I need to be thinking about in support raising? How do I start? How do I cultivate partnerships?
