The church is often in on it too… at some churches the announcement times feel more like help wanted ads, with volunteer leaders asking for volunteers to help with everything from programming to hanging wallpaper. What people do seem to be looking for is something worthwhile, something bigger than themselves, something that’s going to make a lasting difference in another person’s life or community.
The truth is, if you try and do everything with volunteers or donations, you may eventually burn out your well-meaning donors and volunteers.
The problem, I think, with the internet, facebook and email, is that it makes it very easy and very cheap to ask a lot of people for a lot of things. At SpringHill, we have certain donors that love to fund ordinary things like bath houses and sewer projects. Often, when we have needs, we share them this way: We really need help with doing this thing that we really want to do but we don’t have the time or resources to do what God is calling us to do which is why we need help.
Next time, try this instead: Here is an opportunity for you to make a difference in the life of a child in need.
I am a 15-year ministry veteran, currently serving as the Pastor to residents and staff at Eagle Village, and helping to grow the retreats program there. If you answer yes, I will email you every Therapy Thursday for the first year in a single document with a number at the start of each post. After the Therapy Thursday is compiled, I will be working on compiling a book of thoughtful, more serious posts, and then maybe just a funny one. I’m also thinking of starting a store, so if there is something from the blog that you think would be cool on a mug or a shirt or something, please let us know.

I need to talk to someoneLiving Faith Alliance Church has five pastoral staff member and also houses three non-staff professional Christian counselors.
Combining all of your debts will instantly transfer into more money in your pocket, because rather than paying multiple companies, you're making one payment.
I really do need their help to connect the people they have on their teams with the need I have on mine. There’s no shortage of need out there, and people don’t seem shy about asking for help. They aren’t looking for more things to do with their time or more places to send their money.
He was the one who got all the neighborhood kids to whitewash the fence for him—and even pay him for the privilege—just by making it seem like the best thing to do. But, what if, instead of always asking people for help, you gave them the opportunity to be a part of the solution? What used to take an envelope and a stamp or a long distance phone call now takes just seconds with email. Thank God for these faithful donors who know that their giving can meet needs that don’t appeal to the masses. The opportunities you have to serve and give must be framed in a way that tells a compelling story about how their investment will result in lasting change, even if it is funding a bathroom.
Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will add value to my readers. Previously, I was the Retreats Director at SpringHill Camps and a campus minister with His House Christian Fellowship, a large, non-denominational campus ministry serving the Central Michigan University community.
I need you to read them all and then rate them from 1 to 24 or 25, whichever the total number is. If you can help me out, or know someone who will, then I thank you from the bottom of my heart, and maybe some day, my supply of free shit. If discussion generates more than a few emails daily your subscription will be paused automatically.


In addition we also provide services and training designed to help you in navigate through difficult times in your life and to teach you to steward your skills and resources in fruitful ways for the glory of God.
They'll assess the value of the item, and from there you'll be given a loan based on a fraction of that amount. My facebook wall is bombarded with kickstarter campaigns looking for money to launch ministries, projects and albums. The constant asking for volunteers just isn’t getting through the massive filter that years of similar asks have built. Find other ways to accomplish the rest of your tasks with resources and people you already have. If you throw all your needs out all the time, people may begin to think you aren’t managing your internal resources well, and will be less likely to participate when you have a genuine need that they might otherwise have jumped on. But when we have need for new cabins, activities, and projects with measurable ministry outcomes, we take these to a broader audience.
For this, I will give you a copy of the e-book when it comes out, or if it never does, I’ll give you a really good back rub. If you can’t, then thanks for reading this totally uninteresting, boring post all the way to here. If you pay your loan back in time, you'll be given your item back; if not, then the pawn shop has the right to sell your item. I know that our topics jump around a lot, and I also know that some people like the blog for different reasons. For this reason, and this reason alone, I am splitting up the posts into different genres, or types. If you know people that don’t read the blog, but they would be willing to help out, I will also give them a back rub, because they are probably going to need some comforting after being subjected to this horse shit.
