Depending too much on one funding source is simply too risky. It also creates an unhealthy dependence on the funding provider and withholds opportunities from many others who would welcome the opportunity to invest in the ministry, financially and otherwise.
Campus ministries need to be proactive, instead of waiting for financial hardship that often results in desperate reactions.
Despite my pleas, I continue to hear about ministries that risk losing their campus pastor, church building and more, in part because they waited too long to take action.
Transforming Campus Ministries can help your campus ministry develop the support it needs. We use what we teach and we have never had a deficit, even though we formed Transforming Campus Ministries at the depth of the worst recession since the Great Depression.
