Thank you for considering support for CTW. Before you give, may I share the questions I ask myself when I have an opportunity to partner financially with other ministries?
- “If I had the opportunity/expertise, would I do what this ministry is doing?” Supporting a ministry is a way of doing that ministry—except circumstances and life-assignments don’t allow you to do it in person.
- “Does this ministry have a fruitful track-record?” I rarely gave to people who promised what they were going to do unless they were already doing it—or something akin to it—successfully.
- “Have I, or someone I know, been spiritually enriched by this ministry?” Frankly, I was never interested in appeals to meet the needs of a ministry; I wanted to know that the ministry was meeting others’ needs.
Only if the answer was yes to all three questions, would I consider the request prayerfully.
