A Biblical Strategy to Finance Your Ministry
How many potential missionaries never reach their field because raising support seems difficult? How many Christian leaders abandon their ministry before it starts because of fundraising frustration?
It happens too often. But it doesn't have to.
Funding Your Ministry helps ministry workers and their partners break through the financial barriers holding them back from full-time ministry. Whether you are experienced at fundraising or just starting out, this book will help you:
- discover the biblical path for recruiting and retaining donor support,
- develop a strategy to reach full support that lasts long-term
- avoid the common pitfalls that inhibit your fundraising, and
- learn how to manage your money well.
Both fundraisers and their supporters will gain valuable insights from Scott Morton as he shares his own struggles, failures, and victories in raising support. Learn from his experience, in this comprehensive guide and find the financial freedom you need to respond fully to God's call.
"This thoroughly revised edition of Funding Your Ministry by Scott Morton provides even more helpful, hopeful guidance for those in ministry fundraising. Expanded in cross-cultural, universal application while deeply rooted in timeless biblical truth, Scott’s book provides encouragement and hands-on practical application for those just starting out as well as for the long-termers who may have become weary and disillusioned."
-Betty Barnett, Author of Friend Raising: Building a Missionary Support Team That Lasts
This is more than a book on fundraising. It’s a book on biblical thinking about money and ministry, and it’s filled with intensely practical guidelines on how to involve people in your ministry through giving and praying. I’m impressed with this guide. It works and has been tested in the fire of experience with hundreds of our Navigator staff. This is the best resource I have seen—a must for those who raise financial support.
