We’ve been talking a lot about our #MakeItMatch campaign this month, and with just two weeks to go until it comes to a close, we wanted to remind our supporters of exactly how great their donation’s impact can be – and how we use that money. Read on!
The Cost of Sending
Sending someone to the field requires a financial commitment, and the dollar amount varies from region to region. Here is a breakdown of how much it costs to send a pastor into a certain area for ministry.
- Cuba: $25 per month
- Africa: $60 per month
- Asia: $100 per month
That may not seem like much, but when you consider the fact that we have 4,000 men and women ready to move into the field and spread the Gospel who haven’t gone yet because of a lack of funding, the financial aspect becomes much more significant.
Let’s take a look at the potential impact of a single donation. If you give $25 during our Make It Match campaign, then your $25 automatically becomes $50 after our donor matches your gift. $50 could send a pastor to Cuba for two months, during which time he could plant a church and reach hundreds of local residents (maybe even thousands).
So $25 = $50 = 2 months in Cuba for a pastor = hundreds of souls hearing the Gospel who otherwise might not have, and historically, Doulos has seen two professions of faith for every dollar spent. If you ask us, that’s a pretty incredible ROI!
How Can You Give?
Through the end of the year, you can donate to our Make It Match campaign and help us send more pastors to the field! Simply donate through our giving page and rest assured that every dollar of your gift goes straight to the field – not to administrative costs.
Merry Christmas, and thank you for your support of Doulos Partners!
