As our ministry has grown, we have begun hosting group fundraising training, versus doing them one on one like we have in the past. In August we had 7 representatives from 6 different organizations spend their morning learning from Jonathan. In these classes, Jonathan teaches how to begin successful fundraising in a manner that reflects Christ's hearts. He gives practical advice on how to speak with supporters, how to create meaningful content, how to connect in unique ways with potential supporters, and teaches the biblicalbasisfor doing these things well. It has been a joy to hone our skills in this area, and to watch our ministry partners interact!
Our next fundraising training is scheduled for Monday, September 11 at our office. We have a few seats still available if you know anyone that would like to attend.
Praying for Church Partnership
After the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and the record breaking flooding, there will be months and years of clean up andre-building. We are praying and discussing with Kansas City based churches about partnering with a Church in Houston to help them serve their community in the months and years to come. Join us in prayer and let us know if you know of churches or ministries in Houston that would be good for us to partner with.
Praises & Needs
Our Communications Coordinator, Shilo, is pregnant with twins! Pray for her and her husband TJ as they navigate this new experience. They also have a 2 and 3-year-old!
With Shilo preparing to take off work when the twins come, and because of our growth, we have hired 2 new staff. Sallee Gaelle Jack will start work next week, and Sarah Hartman will start near the end of October. Please pray that training goes well and that we can continue to serve our ministry partners well as we move into our busy season.
