A friend of mine that served with me as an intern many years ago recently asked me, “Are you finding churches less active in missions today because of COVID, civil unrest, and ethnic tensions? Are they focusing more now on staying afloat and on domestic needs?”
Three years ago our organization started with this question: How can personal support raising be sustainable for everyone?
“I loved the SRS Bootcamp and learned a lot. I read the book, studied the scripture, and invested financially into all of the expenses necessary for attendance. I did everything right. But I’ve plateaued on my support-raising journey, and I’m only at 40% of my fully-funded goal. Help!”.
Support Raising for ethnic minorities usually conjures up words like shame and honor. But no longer are these terms relegated to ethnic minorities.
