GR missionaries are funded through designated giving. Potential donors are encouraged to prayerfully consider giving one or more shares to the missionary of their choice.
Q – What GR missionaries/nationals need MORE “share” support?
Answer – Here’s the current list of additional shares still needed for missionaries/nationals to be fully funded for the current 2018 year. (Updated February 21, 2018)
Q –How much is a “share” of missionary support?
Answer – One share is $300 for the year (or $25 per month).
Q – Why is this needed?
Answer – Our deputation funding approach (adopted back in 1994) has definitely allowed us to expand our outreach into other countries and cultures. But we have relied too much on one-time gifts and occasional contributions which may get missionaries to the field much sooner but does little to create long term partners to support them in their ministry.
Q – Any other reasons for the “share” approach?
Answer – Yes. First, we’ve heard concerns being expressed about the need to improve our missionary funding process so that recent deficits in some of their accounts can be eliminated. Secondly, we’re convinced that donors who give regularly (partner) are much more faithful in praying for the missionaries than are those who give sporadically. And prayer is a vital means of support for our missionary staff. Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
Q – How should my “share(s)” be paid?
Answer – Some donors prefer to give $300 at one time. Others give monthly ($25), bi-monthly ($60), quarterly ($75) or semi-annually ($150). That’s fine. We (and the missionary) simply need to know we can count on you for consistent support (as the Lord provides.)
Q – Does this mean that one-time or occasional gifts will not be accepted?
Answer – Not at all. Those kinds of gifts will still be beneficial to a missionary’s reserve account, but we’ve learned we cannot rely on those alone. The missionary who has committed to long-time service in another culture needs to know there are individuals, groups, and churches who will also share in a commitment to help sustain their ministry.
Q – Can our Sunday School class or church provide more than 1 share?
Answer – Absolutely! We currently have churches providing 4 or more shares per month. Some churches can easily do more than that!
Q – How do I participate in the “share” support of a missionary?
Answer – You can indicate in writing your intent to provide one or more shares toward a missionary’s support over the next two years. You can use either (1) one of the missionary prayer cards, (2) a return card from one of the announcement brochures being mailed out to our GR mailing list, or even (3) an email to our GR staff (email@example.com) indicating your intent to support a missionary at a particular share support level.
Q – What if I’m interested in the “share” program but am not sure I can afford to participate?
Answer – $300 is less than $1 a day. In most cases, extra discipline or sacrifice is all that is required.
