David Dickens and his wife oversee Ministry Partner Development for US campus ministries with Cru. Daves talks about making sure that support raisers are believing the right things as they go forward. What Is True of Me Since I Raise Support Those things that are true of me since I develop financial support. I serve the Lord God whose resources are infinite (Psalm 50:10-12) and who can abundantly provide. (Ephesians 3:20) God has promised to meet all my needs, especially financial. It is a part of His character to provide for me. (Philippians 4:19, Genesis 22:14) I have a personal calling from God to provide for the needs of my family. (1 Timothy 5:8) My team of ministry partners is laying up treasures in heaven and is greater involved in the fulfillment of the Great Commission because of their participation in my life. (Matthew 6:20) I am inviting people to be partners in ministry with me by committing their time, prayers, resources and finances to what God is doing in our world. I am not begging for money or asking for a contribution. (1 Thessalonians 1:8) My ministry is very significant since people have a need for God. (Matthew 9: 36; Romans 3:23, 6:23) My ministry is very significant since I am providing solutions to life's day-to-day problems. (Matthew 11:28-30) My ministry is very significant since it addresses the root problem of our society and world. (John 3:19b) God promises that those who give to my ministry will be more blessed by the giving than I am by the receiving. (Acts 20:35) I am an encouragement to my ministry team in their own walks with God as they see what He is doing through me. (1 Thessalonians 1:8) God is using me as an opportunity for obedience when others give to my ministry since He has called everyone to give financially to His work. (Malachi 3:8,10; 2 Corinthians 8:1-5) I have committed my life and my family to the ministry of reconciliation. (2 Corinthians 5: 18-20) I am worthy of my wages. (1 Timothy 5:18) As a laborer in the harvest, I am an answer to prayer. (Matthew 9:37-38)
