You can pay for this trip outright, raise support, or a combination of those two, but we strongly encourage everyone to consider raising support for the summer project for several reasons. Most importantly, support raising allows more people to be involved in God’s work, as they receive the blessing of investing in the ministry. Every person you speak to about your summer project is an opportunity to mobilize them by casting a vision of what God is doing around the world. You may be the only person to ever tell them about unreached people groups, the amazing potential to mobilize the African church, or you may be the spark of a journey for them to be more engaged in global missions.
We will equip and coach anyone wanting to raise support with the biblical case for raising support, practical helps, and personal coaching. All gifts are tax deductible and non-refundable, and they may give through our website by credit/debit card, eCheck, or mail in a check.
