As a ministry worker, raising support can be a daunting task. It doesn't have to be intimidating though. It isn't about money or asking people to give. It is about looking to God to provide for you. He has given you a vision for ministry, and now you get to invite others into that vision. Your job is to pray and work hard to discover those whom the Lord has already prepared to invest in you and your ministry. God has done His work. Now it's time for you to do yours.
A case in point: Nehemiah was very nervous about meeting with the wealthiest, most powerful man on the planet. He was asking King Artaxerxes to fund his Jerusalem restoration project. But when it came time to make his appeal, this lowly cupbearer first looked up to the Person who really provides resources. At the moment of truth, Nehemiah lifted his heart and made The God Ask. In Nehemiah 2:4 he describes the exchange: "Then the king said to me, 'What would you request?' So I prayed to the God of heaven."
Instead of going into appointments fearing what your fellow man will say, you can have confidence that God is superintending the whole process. This audiobook will help you embrace the fact that this is not a Man Ask. No. It is a God Ask!

Really enjoyed reading this book. Was inspired to go out and pursue Gods calling on my life and to share the vision he has given. Sharing the vision and trusting God for the provision.
This is a must read for anyone who "gets to" raise personal support for ministry. Read this book carefully, you'll be thankful you invested the time.
This book is the perfect mix of information and impartation for starting and maintaining a partnership team. Steve is full of energy and wisdom. Every missionary and missions committee should read this book soon and reread it often.
As a church planter that is responsible for raising much of my own support, this book completely destroyed my fears about fundraising. asking people to join your ministry team allows them to be a part of God's mission.
