The Church’s Role in Support Raising

OnMission 2017

Though most churches would agree that sending missionaries is important, many fail to recognize their practical role in helping those missionaries raise support. In this video from OnMission 2017, Steve Shadrach, Executive Director of the Center for Mission Mobilization, gives five keys to being a powerful sending church. 

Steve Shadrach is the founder and Executive Director of the Center for Mission Mobilization. Through his organization, Support Raising Solutions, and his book The God Ask, Steve has trained thousands of Christian workers from over 1200 organizations around the world. Steve and his wife, Carol, live in Fayetteville, Arkansas. They have five grown children and four grandchildren.
