Fundraising Launch Week

Fundraising Training. Our week of in-person training is one of the best.

Fundraising is more than just asking for money

Ministry Team Development is the core process Reliant missionaries use to raise funds. The training philosophy is based on William McConkey's "Win, Keep, Lift" strategy on interacting with financial partners and has been proved successful notably through Campus Crusade for Christ, the largest evangelical missions agency in the world.

Key aspects of the MTD model include:

  • Emphasis on personal, face-to-face connection with financial partners in offices, coffee shops, and homes.
  • Recognizing those who give as partners, financially, prayerfully and practically.
  • The skill of sharing a clear, concise, and compelling story that includes a personal testimony, the needs of a mission field, the gospel, and a direct ask for partnership.
  • Recurring monthly giving as foundational to a steady missionary budget that does not require renewing financial commitments each year.

Our launch week makes successful missionaries

Offered four times annually, Reliant's MTD Training Week is the launch point for all deputized fundraisers with Reliant. A comprehensive 80-hour course in the theological and practical aspects of Ministry Team Development, the interactive week is facilitated by people have firsthand experience—leaders who have raised funds themselves for church planting, campus ministry, and more.

Topical examples include: God's Perspective on Money, Facebook and Financial Partners, Calling Back for a Decision, Handling Yes, No & Maybe Answers, and Location Strategy.

The training is intense and covers a broad set of skills in a short amount of time—missionaries leave the training able to present their local ministry in a clear, concise, and compelling manner, and confident in their calling and strategy.

Participants consistently rate the training as essential to their success in fundraising. The cohort connects your team with like-minded missional ministries across the US and Internationally.
