A supporter typically gives most generously and authentically to a person or type of ministry about whose ministry the supporter is passionate. As examples:

  • A person who significantly impacted your walk with Christ decides to serve as a disciplemaker in Europe. You are eager for this person to make the same kind of impact in Austria as he has had in your life.
  • One of your best friends is a Muslim international student. You long for him to come to Christ and are enthused about a ministry that reaches Muslim international students.

    In short, you’ll most faithfully support people and organizations:
  • Whom you’ve observed in effective ministry.
  • Who minister to types of people and places about which you’re passionate.
  • Who are involved in types of ministry about which you’re passionate, such as Biblical teaching, relief and development, or discipleship.
