"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4:10
There are very specific reasons why people invest in your ministry. Just as each of us in Pregnancy Help Leadership have our ‘Why’, so do your donors. When was the last time you had coffee with one of your ministry partners and asked what part of your ministry they are most passionate about? Have you invited any of your ministry partners in recent months to tour your center and find out what draws them to you? While it can be tempting to engage people the most when we have a specific need or fundraiser, it’s important to remember that we were not made to be transactional, we were made to be relational. At the core of our ministry is relationship, relationship with God, and relationship with each other. When we invest time to get to know our partners better, we allow God to grow more than one side of that relationship. Asking your ministry partners why they give, or just as importantly, how they feel their gifts are being stewarded through your ministry, helps them to truly be a part of what God is doing through you as a team. I know you have a lot on your plate. Make time for the ‘Why’ of your relationships and watch God bless your investment by opening even more doors that no man can close.
