For God so loved…..He gave!
Can you imagine what it’s like to spend considerable time contacting people via phone, e-mail, snail mail, and face-to-face in order to invite them to participate in an opportunity to give “over and above” for a ministry or special cause? I know, a lot of folks would shy away (maybe run away) from such a task.
Since recently assuming the role of president of the North American Baptist Foundation, I’ve engaged in this task on a regular basis. Let me give you two examples of how blessed I’ve been in connecting with NABers across the country.
Example #1: A faithful NAB congregation encountered difficult financial straits. They found they needed to forego a commitment they’d made to support a new missionary appointee to an NAB mission field.
