“Where Do You Get Your Support?”
post date: February 24, 2011
- We rely 100% on the gifts of God’s people.
- It’s been that way since we started Keep Believing Ministries five years ago.
- Our funding comes from friends who believe in us.
- I have received a salary from the ministry since 2007. We have several others who help us on a part-time basis.
- Our largest ministry expense involves all that we do to keep the website current.
- We don’t own any land or any buildings.
- We focus on the Internet, the Anchor Book Depot, and on our conference ministry.
- We’re a pretty scattered bunch. We have key people in IL, IN, GA, MS and TX.
- Most of our gifts come in via the mail, with a small and slowly-growing percentage coming in via PayPal.
- I don’t have a set fee for my speaking–never have, never will.
- If I receive an honorarium for speaking, it goes back into the ministry.
- We give our stuff away–the Anchor books, the sermons, the podcasts, the video, the weblog, the wristbands, the magnets, etc.
- The only things you can buy on the website are the books that are sold through our Amazon link. That part is set by the publishers, not by us.
We take very seriously our membership in ECFA, the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability. If you have questions, we’ll be glad to answer them.
We don’t say much about finances for a lot of reasons. I think this the most I’ve ever said about it. I hope you’ll pray for Keep Believing Ministries that we will fulfill God’s vision for us in the years to come.
