For the first time ever, my ongoing article on Fundraising in the Bible is available in web format.

I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Tried downloading the PDF, but I’m getting a message saying the PDF isn’t there.
Thanks Sam. A lot has changed since I blogged this 2 years ago!
I’ve updated the PDF link. Let me know if that works.
Thank you Mr Pitman for this wonderful insight. My dream is to be a faith-based fundraiser to help with the needy children and women, but sometimes I find myself void of ideas and a little bit skeptical about who to approach.
I will appreciate greatly to have your assistance, especially identifying those to meet.
Jesus Christ didn’t tell his disiples to beg for money to support his ministry. Paul the apostle is talking to people that go to a church. If you got a ministry you should live by faith like the rest of us.
I’m intrigued by the passion of your response.
I would say that (1) fundraising is never begging. Ever. And (2) it takes just as much faith to ask for support as it does to not. Really.
How would you categorize Elijah’s asking the widow for provision? Isn’t that supporting his ministry. It appears she did that for quite some time.
Elijah didn’t ask every widow in town for support. Just the one and God did the rest.
Love love love so practical. And Biblical. I just watch you on the fundraiser webinar.
I’ve been working on this for 10 years. It does take time
