Welcome to the Global Action Family Challenge!
August 1 - September 30
Will Your Family Rise to the Challenge and Help Provide Support?
We’re asking your family to participate in one or more friendly and competitive fundraisers to support Global Action’s mission. As you are raising money to support the student pastors and church leaders in developing countries, we guarantee you’ll have fun! We thank you in advance for using your time, talents, and treasures to help us spread the Good news around the world.
At Global Action, we strive to put Christ first in all we do. It’s our mission and passion, to train new pastors and church leaders in developing countries and to help them reach their communities for the Lord—making passionate disciples of Christ.
To do this, we utilize a unique system that empowers and equips pastors and church leaders in their native cultures with Biblical and healthy church training, missional vision, continuing education, and a growing peer network around the globe of over 7,000 other Global Action trained pastors and church leaders.
And while we have a very generous volunteer staff that dedicates their time and energy to the cause, we still need funding to fully train and support our student pastors. The cost to sponsor five pastors for an entire year is about $500.00 per month which provides all the materials and resources necessary to graduate from the program.
The Challenge: #makedisciplesnow
Launch fun and friendly fundraisers to raise money for Global Action. And, encourage your peers to sign up for Global Action email communications.
Monetary Donations: When you are ready to make your donations, please visit our site and choose “Family Challenge” in the drop-down menu so we can attribute your givings to this campaign.
Newsletter Signups: When your friends sign up for the newsletter communications, please have them indicate how they heard about us by entering your first and last name in the "custom field" of the form so we can attribute them to your fundraiser.
Social Media Posts: When you finish a fundraiser, please post photos and stories, etc. using #makedisciplesnow. We will highlight your efforts by re-tweeting and re-sharing your posts on the Global Action social sites.
The Finish Line: We’ll announce (via our social sites in late-September) the families who raised the most monetary funds as well as those who encouraged the most newsletter signups.
Get Your Children Involved
It’s well known that children model their parents’ behaviors. So why not teach them while they’re young to work for Christ in fun and simple ways that will positively affect your community and the World?
“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” ~Proverbs 22:6
Here are some examples of ways your family can earn money to donate to Global Action. Do you have other ideas? Be sure to share your stories and photos with us. #makedisciplesnow
