Ministry Partner Development (MPD) Training
Raising funds for your ministry is not something you have to do so you can do ministry. It is engaging and mobilizing the hearts of God’s people to be a part of the Great Commission through their prayers and generosity. At its core giving is an expression of worship. This training will walk you through what God says about how He provides for those He’s called to serve Him full time. You will see a thread of continuity about His provision that runs through the Old and New Testaments. You will learn how to cast your vision, present your ministry and invite people to become ministry partners through their prayers and generosity. During the training, you will create a presentation you can use when you raise support.
Bring to this training materials (digital and in print) what you currently use to present to prospective ministry partners. It is important for missionary couples that both husband and wife participate. Raising support is not a one spouse activity. Both need to be engaged in this process.
Let’s change how we look at raising support from something we have to do to out of necessity to opportunities we seize to urgently mobilize people to give and pray so that every man, woman and child on this planet can have the opportunity to hear the Gospel.
