What Four Questions Should You Ask Yourself BEFORE You Ask Someone To Give To Your Ministry?

What SPECIFIC human hurt or hope are we addressing with this particular ministry? Clearly articulating what is being addressed with a ministry initiative fosters confidence that there is a well thought-out reason for the ministry. Building confidence and trust is critical for growing financial support.

What CONCRETE help, hope and service will be provided? Be clear about the particular, intended delivery to show focused plans.

What specifically is your MISSIONAL objective with this particular ministry? As you address a particular hurt or hope with very specific actions, what are the expected outcomes? How will lives be changed?

Who is the target of this specific ministry? Who do you have a passion for serving through this specific ministry?

Be very clear about the WHY of your ask for support, then be sure to ask. If you do not ask, you likely will not receive.
