Assisting in the financial needs of retired pastors, missionaries, staff, & their
The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially
those who work hard at preaching and teaching.
The real heroes of the faith are those men and women who gave their lives in the
spread of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. They considered The Great Commission
a personal mandate - a direct call of God. Many of these sacrificial servants went
out in faith without the assurance of monetary reward. Their confidence was that
God would meet their needs as they faithfully performed their ministry.
Now in their latter years, unable to serve as they once did, they find themselves
in critical financial need. Each story is unique but there is a common thread: These
servants faithfully served their Master and are deserving of God’s people coming
alongside in financial support, especially those whose health and resources are diminished.
When we come alongside these heroes of the faith in financial support we actually
share in their work; we become partners in ministry.
