WILL YOU STEP UP, STEP FORWARD AND ANSWER THE CALL?
On 30 May - 2 June 2018, we are gathering as a family of churches for our Courage conference. This time together will be an important milestone in our history. Dreams will be born and commitments will be made to attempt bigger things, to be bolder and more courageous. We believe that ripples will go out from here to the uttermost parts of the earth.
We believe God wants to strengthen and extend our work across the board, in encouraging and supporting our family, in empowering the poor, in sharing the gospel with our neighbours and the nations...
God has given us exciting dreams for this next season: 20,000 people praying, leaders raised up, and churches planted into every nation of Europe. See the 'How will the offering be used?' section for more details.
Would you partner with us and invest in this vision? We are believing for €112,000 - or £100,000 - to help us bring these dreams closer to reality.
You can participate as a church or as an individual - some churches will be taking up special offerings in advance of the conference and bringing the totals to London in May. Some will be prayerfully considering how much to give from their regular offerings for the work of RM. Individuals who feel called to participate in this vision are also welcome to give. Scroll down to find out how you can give.
Your giving is a decision to invest your money in another kingdom: one which is not of this world and one that will outlast stone and steel, gold and glass. This world will pass away, but what we invest in Jesus’ Kingdom will last forever.
A courageous vision needs courageous givers to support it. Will you partner with us? Will you step up, step forward and answer the call?
How will the offering be used?
- Taking ENOUGH (prayer nights) to the next level and seeing 20,000 people praying globally together, at the same time, for breakthrough. This requires investment in resources, infrastructure and co-ordination.
- Releasing Maurice Nightingale to focus his efforts on stimulating pioneering activity on the mainland of Europe. We feel this is a key next stage in seeing the Hanseatic League and Eurostar and similar prophecies fulfilled.
- Supporting specific pioneering projects looking to reach unreached people groups and new nations.
- Strengthening our family presence in London and releasing Stef Liston to provoke and help our family develop in the UK and beyond.
- Stepping up our investment in our next generation of leaders and Ephesians 4 ministries. This requires intentional development and gathering points and is a key focus for Mike Betts.
- Maintaining and enhancing the care and support amongst our family. To make all the above happen requires others to be released, some of whom will require financial support.
- Sharpening our media and communications to keep our family informed and encouraged across the globe. This requires new media, translation and an international focus.
- Continuing to stimulate activity on the ground in terms of social action and empowering the poor.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
If you are a part of the leadership team of a church we would encourage you to partner with us and show the courage offering video at the next appropriate church meeting, then to take up an offering. The video can be downloaded or streamed from Vimeo (where it is hosted).
Powerpoint slides (16:9 / 4:3) to complement the video and help facilitate can be downloaded. Graphics resources relating to Courage to include in your church's visual presentations or social media are also available.
Please use your usual mechanisms for collecting appeal donations and claiming Gift Aid.
If your church is represented at the Courage Conference, then you can bring the money raised and place it in the offering (via cheque).
If this is not possible then please then send through a cheque or make an electronic payment reflecting the total money raised.
If you represent a business or charitable organisation but feel stirred to ask this organisation to contribute to the appeal then please send a cheque or electronic payment as outlined in the How can I make a Donation section?
If you would like to contribute to this offering directly (and you are attending the Courage Conference) then prayerfully consider how you would like to contribute and give during the offering night at the conference.
If you are unable to attend the conference and wish to respond to this call then please please send a cheque or electronic payment, outlined in the How can I make a donation? section.
We would also love as many as people as possible to get involved, so it would be great if you could help us publicise and share about the appeal with your networks & connections on social media.
