Good Afternoon Everyone!
I wanted to take a moment to speak to you about something that’s hard for me to talk about, but it’s necessary for me to bring up from time to time. That topic, of course, has to do with financial support of Christlike Ministries NWA.
As most of you know I am not legally or licensed as a pastor, but I firmly believe that God gave me the anointing and position through His Word just like He called and anointed me to serve Him through His Word. I also know that the reason God never pushed me to get ordained is because of the state of things today. I am not bound by the laws of man…I am bound only by God’s expectations of me…and those expectations are to continue serving Him as the pastor of Christlike Ministries NWA.
Also, my ministry is not a non-profit or 501c3, and that’s also God-ordained for a time such as this. There’s no tax exempt status for Christlike Ministries NWA. So, on one hand it hurts me because I can’t offer you a tax deduction on your donations, but it helps me because the government can’t threaten to take away what they never anointed me to do.
So…here’s a very practical point. Most people when a ministry is seeking money they think we’re after your entire paycheck or life’s savings…and that’s simply not true. I am writing this post because I want you to see a very practical point of just how much y’all can do to help out Christlike Ministries NWA with very little.
As of right now, just going off the amount of people who are members of the Christlike Ministries NWA Family Group page which is slightly more than 1700. Now, it’s time for some really simple, but practical math…are you ready!?! If every one of the 1700 people would partner with Christlike Ministries NWA by taking one $5.00 bill/month, putting it in an envelope & sending it to us…that would give us $8,500/month…which would bring in an astonishing $102,000/year.
Friends…that’s over $100,000 in a year if every one of our members would give just $5.00 a month…and what’s even more practical is if every one of our members put just $1.00 a month in an envelope that still gives us roughly $1,700 a month which would bring in a total of just over $20,000 a year.
Do you guys know what I could do ministry wise with $20,000 to $100,000 a year? I could take care of ALL the ministry expenses, I could sow into other ministries that I know God wants Christlike Ministries NWA to partner with, and I could get involved with some pay-it-forward type things that I know God wants us to do.
In the interest of being transparent…it would also enable me to help provide for my family by paying for things like the electric and internet bills that help to keep Christlike Ministries NWA online.
So…now to answer the question of what’s in it for you to partner financially monthly with Christlike Ministries NWA.
- First of all, you are sowing into a ministry that is reaching nearly 200 nations, and that means you are sowing into a ministry that is fertile soil…and we’re not even asking for 10% of your income. I don’t even know what $1.00 or $5.00 is compared to your income…but as you can see with just that little amount…you can help us out a lot.
- Secondly, I have been quietly working on a project that I believe can become another way for Christlike Ministries NWA to reach the world…and it was also the main prize in the add-a-member contest that ended on Labor Day…and now it’s about to be released to every person who can partner financially with Christlike Ministries NWA for any amount. That project: The Christlike Ministries NWA Mobile App.
- Thirdly, YOU can be a part of helping Christlike Ministries NWA sow into several ministries that I know God wants us to support, and you can also be a part of several projects that I know God wants me to do right here in Northwest Arkansas.
- Finally, you would be blessing me by enabling me to be able to bless and provide for my family. By being able to take the burden of some of the household expenses of my wife’s income it would help ease the stress off of my wife who is working extremely hard with very little to show for it other than helping to keep the lights on, a roof over our head, and food in our stomachs.
I mean I could give you all the same “give and it shall be given you” scriptures, I could Bible whip you by saying it’s biblical to give to ministries that you are learning from, but I don’t want to do that…I wanted to give you some real, personal, and practical points about how just a little bit of help from you can help Christlike Ministries NWA continue doing what we’re called and anointed to do.
So…if this ministry has been a blessing to you…would you consider partnering with us financially by taking just a $1.00 or $5.00 bill, putting it in an envelope, and then sending it to Christlike Ministries NWA? I am seriously not asking for anymore that $5.00. Now, if the Lord is leading you to do more…that’s between you and the Holy Ghost…but I’m certainly not asking anyone to do more than $5.00/month…and if you do that I’ll give you the link to that Mobile app that I believe will take Christlike Ministries NWA to the next level.
I’m sorry this has gone so long, but I didn’t want to write some kind of impersonal message about tithing or giving. I wanted to share with you some honesty from my heart about the fact that operating this ministry is putting a financial strain on my family, and in order to keep it going we need your help…and the practical point that it doesn’t take everyone giving 10% to do much. In fact, if everyone does just the minimum you would be blessing Christlike Ministries NWA so that we can in turn be a blessing to the Kingdom of God and to our community right here in Northwest Arkansas.
Because I want to be sure to keep my daughter safe I’m not going to post my address. If you wish to partner with us financially please send me a private message, and I will give you my address.
Thank you all so much for your time. Thank you for being a part of the Christlike Ministries NWA Family. Thank you for your prayers, patience, and support…and thank you in advance for partnering with us…after all there’s no Christlike Ministries NWA without YOU.
Have a blessed day in the Lord!
Blessings & Grace;
Bryan Kizer – Pastor
