Build Your Team

Sharing the vision is your mission.

Building a partnership team to invest in your vision and mission takes a decent amount of time. Most ministry workers need 4-12 months to become fully funded. During the initial fundraising phase, we recommend that ministry workers devote as much time to raising up the team of financial partners as their current life stage and ministry obligations will allow (20 hours a week or more is recommended).

This phase is designed for your success. One of the most common causes of long-term failure is trying to raise funds "on the side" as you continue ministry work and even another job. This can cause a distraction where you never achieve the support you need to sustain your ministry. We ask that you enter this phase knowing this should be one of your top priorities.

We make sure you're not alone.

Our studies confirm that a key to success in fundraising is a regular—typically weekly—connection with an MTD Coach. MTD coaches are current or former Reliant staff who have been through training and raised their support, so they can speak to all the challenges and joys this season allows. Your coach will support, challenge, and encourage you in Christian character, true theological thinking, and MTD skills and strategy.

While the most important part of coaching is regular contact and spiritual support, Reliant has decades of experience in fundraising data that can help us pinpoint success and trouble points. We provide your coach access to our tools for helping to create individual goals as well as guiding them with new real-time strategies. Additionally, our MTD Health team does regular check-ins with your coach to ensure you get the best possible help and care. uses cookies for features, performance, and tracking.
