Compassion International

I’d like to highlight a ministry that is all about the local church – Compassion International. Compassion’s mission is to release children from poverty in Jesus’ Name, and they fulfill their mission by partnering with churches located in areas with extreme poverty.

Did you know that every sponsored child, all 2.2 million, are cared for by a local church in their community? Every single one.

Compassion partners with over 8400 churches in the developing world, which means if your church partners with Compassion, you are helping a pastor and church reach its community with the love of Jesus.

If you are a church leader, Compassion provides valuable resources for your congregation, too.

As a pastor, Compassion offered our church an amazing opportunity for outreach. It allowed everyone in our church to be personally engaged in missions – I trust Compassion, and they made it easy for me as a lead pastor.

Visit Compassion.com/Carey to explore resources Compassion has available for your church. That’s Compassion.com/Carey.


If you’re like most pastors, your outreach strategy looks nothing like it did a year ago, let alone 10 or 20 years. Things change at the speed of light.

And since they didn’t teach marketing in seminary, you’re going to want to pay attention to this revolutionary program from Gloo called REACH.

In the last year, REACH has connected over 127,000 people with churches across the country. That’s an average of 12 new contacts every month for churches that sign up.

Here’s how it works:

Gloo partners with recognizable national campaigns for Jesus.

You’ve probably seen some:
He Gets Us
Churches Care
And many others

When people respond to those campaigns and ask to connect with a church, Gloo matches them with a church in their city.

Then, your church receives connections in a dedicated inbox using Gloo’s suite of FREE texting tools to communicate and build relationships.

It’s easy to use, doesn’t require additional staff, and costs are covered by Kingdom-Minded donors who want you to have access to this one-of-a-kind solution.

The best part? 

With others focused on running expensive and complex campaigns,

You’re free to focus on what you do best: Building more life-changing relationships.

So, what are you waiting for? Go to get.gloo.us/reach to sign up and connect with more people from your community who need you.

Increase Giving and Fully Fund Your Mission—Regardless of Where You're at Now.

When it comes to money conversations with your church, my guess is that you want the outcome (margin in your budget and a generous congregation) without the process (having to raise funds and talk about it).

The Art of Building a Generous Congregation is a proven method for increasing giving, creating a culture of generosity, and building financial margin at your church... without the stress and awkwardness.

Even if you don’t feel comfortable talking about money right now.
Even if you’ve never seen your congregation fully engage with that kind of conversation.
Even if you’ve tried other methods without success.

And yes, especially, if you could make a bigger difference by increasing your budget by 20%, 30%, or even 40%.
