We have an exciting new opportunity for everyone connected to the ministry of reconciliation!
Ambassadors of Reconciliation is making available a new Crowdfunding Platform. This platform has the potential to revolutionize the ministry of peacemaking and reconciliation! Crowdfunding allows all of us to participate in the ministry of reconciliation in a very special way and is a great way to connect more people to our mission. By each of us sharing our passion for this ministry and directly inviting our friends, family and colleagues to support us, we can collectively grow peacemaking and reconciliation, reaching more people than ever before! When our friends tell their friends who tell their friends ... that's when something really special happens. Let's leverage the power of the Internet for something good! We've all heard remarkable stories of the Internet connecting people in support of a common cause through GoFundMe and similar platforms. This is also possible for the ministry of peacemaking and reconciliation. If everyone receiving this invitation raises just a few dollars through their connections to friends, then this vital ministry would have an operating surplus!
Through this crowdfunding platform, fundraising is easy, it's transparent and it's fun. Your participation is crucial! Crowdfunding is predicated on the premise that many people participate - that it goes 'viral'. Once people begin to engage, it encourages the next person, who inspires the next, and so on. Everyone can always see the progress on the fundraising campaigns and who the top fundraisers are. By jumping in to try this new way of fundraising, we will all enjoy a renewed sense of camaraderie as we all pitch in together.
Visit our Crowdfunding Page to get started. There, you can create a fundraiser profile, select the campaigns you would like to support and then create a customized page to share why these ministries are important to you. Check out these crowdfunding campaigns (using our same platform) for a few ideas to get started. Then, you can share your fundraising page through your favorite social media such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc to invite people to join you in this ministry of reconciliation. Not on social media? No problem! You can invite your friends through email, newsletters, even bulletin inserts at church!
You are probably thinking "I'm not a fundraiser!" The truth is, all we're asking you to do is share how peacemaking and reconciliation have impacted you and invite your friends to join you in this ministry. It's really then up to the Holy Spirit to move them. You never know when your simple invitation will connect someone to a passion for a ministry they previously didn't know was in them.
To THANK YOU for helping us, we have benefits for fundraisers. With the first $50 raised through your page (from someone other than yourself), you will receive a $50 coupon for our bookstore! On top of that, we will provide reduced conference or training registration fees worth up to 50% of the undesignated funds raised through your page! This means you may be able to attend training and conference for FREE!!
We pray this new crowdfunding platform will usher in a new era of prosperity for the ministry of reconciliation. We are seeking 500 people to be our initial fundraisers. If each would raise $500 from their network, this equates to a collective quarter of a million dollars! The benefits above release $25,000 worth of reconciliation Bible studies while 500 more reconcilers get trained in (for example) Coaching People through Conflict! If each of these fundraisers share their testimony with 100 people, then 50,000 people will be introduced to Biblical reconciliation.

Everyone is welcome to monitor our progress toward this goal by watching our campaign page. Just check each campaign for progress details.
Let's all pray together that God will deliver more abundantly than we can ask or think. We're thinking big, but our God is so much bigger!
"Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen." (Ephesians 3:20-21 ESV)
In Christ's service,
