Publishers Description
Most of us would rather have a root canal than ask for money. Raising support is one of the most difficult challenges facing Christians in ministry. Fears of rejection, concerns about biblical validity, feelings of not being deserving, anxiety about limited resources can all block us from obtaining the means to fulfill our calling. This book both affirms that God uses the Christian community to send us into ministry and demystifies the process. This down-to-earth handbook offers a clear, biblical perspective gives step-by-step instructions on how to assemble the tools unique to each person's support-raising task helps you know what range of gift to ask of a potential donor outlines the how-tos of holding a home promotional event tells the four predictors of church support is aware of the diverse ethnic contexts of today's new mission candidates includes a chapter by a woman for women on their unique challenges in support raising shows how to build a base in a strong church when you don't have one explains exactly why people do and don't give The relational strategy in this book has proven valuable for those who serve Christ on campus, in the city or in other special ministries at home or abroad. It is not necessarily the quickest approach to raising money, but it is the most lasting and fulfilling for those who give and receive.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Thorough & Practical Manual  Aug 16, 2005
Sommer's book is an essential manual for missionary support raising. He covers all the bases well when it comes to methodology. He doesn't get 5 stars from me because his theoretical basis is not covered here. If you want to know which method to use, i.e. prayer only, prayer and reporting, or prayer and asking people for funds, Sommers does not make the case for his method.

However, Sommers gives a detailed look at how to sensitively ask friends, and churches for funds (with real-life dialogues for examples). There is a flexibility to Sommer's approach as he nuances his advice differently for women, African, & Asian-Americans who face a different context than do white males.

Some key ideas I took away from this book is to focus on building a case statement that encapsulates your ministry. Then try to share this is in a thorough way as much as possible face to face. 2nd, to come to people as a resource and catalyst to invigorate their own walk with the Lord by their partnership with you in missions. Sommer's excels at giving step by step instructions to organize with specific examples and charts to clarify his ideas. Overall, this book is more than worth its purchase price
A unique book on personal support raising  Mar 8, 2004
Pete Sommer has written an excellent book, especially if you are a single female, minority or international who might have some unique challenges and issues you face. The biblical basis, stories, and examples are very helpful. Thanks Pete for this great book.
