Biblical Fundraising

Development and fundraising is a calling God gives to people with big hearts and daring vision.  It’s a spiritual calling bestowed upon and required of the leaders of many Christian nonprofit organizations.  That includes presidents, development staff professionals and even agency personnel like our staff here at Masterworks.  Understanding the biblical foundation for our calling is mission critical.

Beginning today and for my next five posts, we’ll be digging deeper into this area with a special 5-part series on the roles we play as biblical fundraisers.  Each role demonstrates an essential aspect of our mission as representatives of what God is doing in the world today.  I invite you to purposefully accept the five different roles as part of your calling in life.  Most of us are not strong in all these roles.  But immerse yourself in the wonder of God using weak people like you and me to demonstrate His strength.  And remember to celebrate His amazing plan along the way.  “God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful.”
(1 Corinthians 1:27 NLT).
