3 Ways You Can Help Us Help 20schemes

Yesterday, Jeff and I had a great time catching up with an old friend over lunch. We had a lot of catching up to do on both sides, and we were glad to share with her about 20schemes and our role in helping the ministry. It was so refreshing to see our friend become excited about the ministry and then hear her tell us about people she'd like to tell about this ministry.

Last night, as I reflecting on that sweet time, I thought of three ways you can help us help 20schemes.

1. Support. Currently, our biggest need is to raise our monthly support so that we can commit our time fully to developing partnerships with 20schemes. We're told that it often takes a minimum of 12-18 months to get this base of support; we hope to do this much sooner than that, by God's grace! Please partner with us in prayer to this end -- and if you'd like to partner financially, as well, you can learn how to do that here.

2. Subscribe. We love telling folks about the work of 20schemes, and two ways we do that include this blog and our e-newsletter. We hope to post here several times a week, and our e-newsletter will go out about once a month. To be sure you receive each update, we'd love for you to subscribe to both the blog and the e-newsletter. And we have a subscribe page to help you subscribe to either or both. And follow our Facebook page for frequent ministry updates.

3. Share. Can you help us get the word out? Here are a few easy ways to share:
  • Share our blog posts on Facebook, or email the link to a few of your friends with a personal note.
  • Share our Facebook updates with your Facebook friends.
  • When you receive your e-newsletter, share it with folks and ask them to subscribe (it's free)
  • If you see we'll be in your area, consider hosting a missions fellowship in your home or at your church. We'd love to meet your friends and share our ministry with them, too.
  • Tell your pastor about our ministry. And let us know if your church might be interested in hosting us to come and share, whether it's as part of a missions conference, for Jeff to preach in a Sunday service or lead a men's conference, for Suzanne to speak to a women's group, or simply to share the vision of 20schemes in a worship service. You can see our current schedule here, and learn how to contact us here.
Will you help us help 20schemes? It's easy, and we can't do it without you!
