As Christ followers we know that earth and its possessions are not our home. We are striving for an eternity that is perfect in ways we cannot understand. But that doesn’t stop our human desire for “the next best thing.” It’s our instinct to strive for something greater – but in anything but Jesus, we will come up short. That’s why it’s crucial for us to give and tithe to our church, missions, and those less fortunate so that we do not get caught up in the race for “more” and instead keep our focus on eternity.
As churchgoers ourselves, and a Gospel-based nonprofit, we know ministry support is important for a church and their congregation. And there are countless ministries to choose from with missions that your church could get behind. But choosing a ministry to partner with goes much deeper.
One of the unique aspects of our work at Set Free is that it is all done by indigenous partners. The state-side branch of Set Free, the small, local staff located in Greenville, SC, is solely focused on fundraising efforts, spreading the word, and championing our in-countries partners day in and day out.
God often aligns our calling with both our passion and our pain. What fuels you? What injustice makes your heart race and your stomach drop? And most importantly, what solution gives you hope for change? Maybe you have a heart for a certain part of the world or demographic of people. We believe that God gave you that for a reason, and it’s important to listen to it:
Once you’ve decided what charity to support, your next step is figuring out exactly what that support looks like. Like all ministries, we couldn’t accomplish what we do at Set Free if it weren’t for the donations we receive from our generous supporters. Yet, there is also something deeply powerful about joining forces in prayer, time, and our unique skills to make an impact in the lives of others.
