Funds help defray the costs of various evangelistic efforts by short-term teams. Each year short-term teams assist missionaries in a variety of evangelistic opportunities.
Hosting short-term teams generates costs in the area of gasoline, toll booths, food, and evangelistic material. AV equipment needs to be maintained and eventually replaced.
The efforts of short-term teams make disciples for Christ, plant new churches, and equip church leaders.
Events include public school evangelism, open-air preaching, showing the Jesus film, and training programs for local churches. Through these efforts, thousands have heard the gospel and many have responded. Local church people follow up, gathering names and addresses to visit in the coming days.
The annual budget of $1,000 represents ongoing needs that fluctuate according to ministry location and frequency of short-term teams.
