Many people who respond to God's calling set off on the journey before they create a plan to fund it. The mission is to do good, help people, and spread God’s Word but without a funding plan they run out of resources long before they reach the finish line. Often the task of asking for money can be easy to push aside and even seem outside of God's call.
But God's call is complete. He understands the cost. Bills still need to get paid.
If this sounds familiar, Ask Without Fear® for Christian Ministry is for you! In these pages, fundraising expert Marc A. Pitman shows you how to fund your ministry. He also shares stories of fundraising straight from the Bible. And, as hard as it may be to believe right now, he even shows you how fundraising can be an enjoyable part of your calling!
“Ask Without Fear" is a Godsend for me as a musician, entrepreneur and communicator. It's terrifying for me to ask for money and when I eventually do so, I'm convinced I do it all wrong…I'm very thankful for the hard work and passionate dedication Marc has given to giving me the heart and mind help that I need in this crucial area."
Paul Colman singer/songwriter/producer/communicator
“Christian ministries often rely on ‘bake sale’ fundraising and are reluctant to engage in major gift solicitation because it’s perceived as too unseemly or too difficult. Marc Pitman breaks down that resistance...For those ministries that find major gift fundraising to be unseemly, Marc demonstrates that asking for the support of others is not just how we fund our mission; it is an inextricable part of our mission, woven throughout Scripture.”
