21 Feb Fundraising Beyond Friendship
Cultivating friendships with ministry partners is vital, but fundraising is more than friendship. The friend at midnight had an urgent need and turned to his friend for help. His friend was reluctant, but our friend kept asking until he got results, “He may not get up and give you the bread, just because you are his friend. But he will get up and give you as much as you need, simply because you are not ashamed to keep on asking” Luke 11:8 (CEV).
Likewise, you need to ask your friends to participate in your ministry. They might not give because of your friendship but they are more likely to give if you boldly ask.
