One of my favorite questions to ask workers who get to 100% is “If you could tell a new worker raising support one thing what would it be.” I’ve done some posts on this before, but thought I would gather some new answers for you. I hope you find these encouraging. I know I do! – JF
Recently a friend of mine from Support Raising Solutions, Aaron Babyar, was a guest on a great podcast called EngagingMissions.com. He spoke on the topic of support raising.
I think every ministry worker needs to hear it. Including you.
Think of this podcast episode like a audio syllabus for a upper-level support raising class at a fancy university. Also, if you have been searching for better language to describe what you are doing in raising up a financial partnership team, steal every one-liner Aaron says and turn it into your own vocabulary. Here are some great examples of Aaron one-liners for stealing purposes:
“Begging and inviting — those are diametrically opposed.“
“My supporters are a part of my ministry because they are in it with me.“
“Believe and have faith that it all depends on God, but meanwhile, work like it all depends on you.”
Take an hour to listen sometime this week and thank me later – here’s the link:
