Crowdfunding the Ministry of Reconciliation

Turning Passion Into Action

"This crowdfunding experience has been yet another reminder of how often we think too small…  we’re continually just blown away by how the Lord can move in His church by prayer, vision, and opportunity.   '(Lord) I believe, help my unbelief!'” (Mark 9:24)
- Pastor Phil Heiser (after doubling, then achieving his fundraising goal!)

YOU Make the Difference!

Where traditional fundraising involves our sending fundraising appeal solicitations to people in our centralized database, crowdfunding inserts the most powerful and important ingredient ... YOU!

YOU can make the invitation very personal and very unique. There is nothing more powerful than a personal invitation from someone we know. When you share your personal testimony about why the ministry of reconciliation is a worthy cause, and then make a personal invitation to those you know, the likelihood of someone responding is FAR GREATER than if they received a solicitation from someone not known to them.

When you combine this personal touch with the scale offered by the Internet, then the potential becomes exponential. That is what we see with the remarkable news stories of GoFundMe campaigns.
