Book Overview

Most of us would rather have a root canal than ask for money. Raising support is one of the most difficult challenges facing Christians in ministry. Fears of rejection, concerns about biblical validity, feelings of not being deserving, anxiety about limited resources can all block us from obtaining the means to fulfill our calling.

Thorough & Practical Manual

Sommer's book is an essential manual for missionary support raising. He covers all the bases well when it comes to methodology. He doesn't get 5 stars from me because his theoretical basis is not covered here. If you want to know which method to use, i.e. prayer only, prayer and reporting, or prayer and asking people for funds, Sommers does not make the case for his method. However, Sommers gives a detailed look at how to sensitively ask friends, and churches for funds (with real-life dialogues for examples). There is a flexibility to Sommer's approach as he nuances his advice differently for women, African, & Asian-Americans who face a different context than do white males. Some key ideas I took away from this book is to focus on building a case statement that encapsulates your ministry. Then try to share this is in a thorough way as much as possible face to face. 2nd, to come to people as a resource and catalyst to invigorate their own walk with the Lord by their partnership with you in missions. Sommer's excels at giving step by step instructions to organize with specific examples and charts to clarify his ideas. Overall, this book is more than worth its purchase price

A unique book on personal support raising

Pete Sommer has written an excellent book, especially if you are a single female, minority or international who might have some unique challenges and issues you face. The biblical basis, stories, and examples are very helpful. Thanks Pete for this great book.
