Fears of rejection, concerns about biblical validity, feelings of not being deserving, anxiety about limited resources can all block us from obtaining the means to fulfill our calling.This book both affirms that God uses the Christian community to send us into ministry and demystifies the process. This down-to-earth handbookoffers a clear, biblical perspectivegives step-by-step instructions on how to assemble the tools unique to each person's support-raising taskhelps you know what range of gift to ask of a potential donoroutlines the how-tos of holding a home promotional eventtells the four predictors of church supportis aware of the diverse ethnic contexts of today's new mission candidatesincludes a chapter by a woman for women on their unique challenges in support raisingshows how to build a base in a strong church when you don't have oneexplains exactly why people do and don't giveThe relational strategy in this book has proven valuable for those who serve Christ on campus, in the city or in other special ministries at home or abroad.
