A biblical  strategy to finance your ministry.

How many potential missionaries never reach their field because raising support seems too 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, Funding Your Ministry 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.

Introduction to the Online Appendix


One of the most practical and needful books that I have ever seen. - Dr. Howard Foltz, president and founder of Accelerating International Mission Strategies.

If you raise support, then Funding Your Ministry is a must-read. - Ellis Goldstein, director of ministry partner development for Cru.

Funding Your Ministry has been tested in the fire of experience with hundreds of our Navigator staff. It works. This is the best resource I have seen - a must for those who raise financial support. - Jerry E. White, PHD, International president emeritus of The Navigators


"We have been fully funded for at least six years and now have savings where we used to have debt - big debt. We know what to do to raise funds and don't question our 'call' like we used to when we were underfunded. We know how to trust God with our fears. We know God better."
A Participant in a Navigator 4:10 fundraising School

"The biblical studies on how God funds His work have been the single most important ingredient in my training. Through Bible study, reflection and wrestling with other missionaries on these issues, my convictions began to form."
