OTUAW Fundraising Ideas

OTUAW..HOW can you afford to go??
We want to see you there!😁
Fundraising ideas:
✅“Pick a number or Adopt a box”: This fundraising idea focuses on creating a large board with many different numbers. You can choose how many numbers to include (e.g., 1-50). You can present them on a board in a creative way. The idea is that supporters can “Pick a Number” for “Adopt a box” to donate.
Once they pick a number, it is taken off the board or crossed out. On some board ideas, no single person would have to give more than $50.
You can adjust the amount based on your specific circumstances. Below are some ideas.
✅Feel free to Google: “fundraising ideas for mission trips or field trips” for more ideas!

6 Things That Will Make Your Ministry Less Effective

6 Things that Will Make Your Ministry LESS Effective

Sometimes we think we’re not as effective as we could be in ministry because we lack
finances, or our space isless thanideal, or we don’t have enough people to help. Those
things are frustrating issues, for sure, but they’re NOT the thing that makesour ministry less
effective. Why? Because we could have all the finances we need, in the best space ever,
with loads of people helping and STILL be less effective due to:

1. Prayerlessness.
Little Prayer = Little Power = you’ll never be as effective as you could be.

2. Vision Drift.
You’re doing a godly “thing” but it’s not necessarily God’s thing for you. If
you’re off YOUR mark, then you’re going to be less effective in ministry.

3. Unchecked Sin.
You CANNOT be effective in the things of God when sin is unchallenged
in YOUR life or in the lives of others in your group or ministry.

4. Pride.
Your God-given platform cannot become a means of self-promotion. To be
effective in ministry requires that you stay God-focused and others-centric.

5. Old “Manna.”
You must operate from“fresh bread,” which you get when you abide
regularly with Jesus in His Word, in prayer, and in community with the Body of Christ.
Yesterday’s manna will not make your ministry more effective.

6. Control.
Effectiveness is not connected to perfection. It’s connected to empowerment.
However, empowering imperfect people is messy business, but it’s the God-way of helping people grow and begin contributing through their gifts and abilities.
