Hosting a Global Ministries Fundraiser on Facebook!
Hosting a fundraiser for Global Ministries on Facebook can be a fun and easy way to support the work of Global Ministries, mission co-workers, and the ministries of international partner churches and programs. Some Global Ministries supporters just like you have done Facebook fundraisers for Global Ministries to great success!
When you start a fundraiser, Facebook will automatically input text for the title and description of the fundraiser, but we recommend that you edit it to make it your own! Here is some suggested language if you’re not sure where to start:
Title: Support Global Ministries and international partners
Text: Please join me in supporting the work of Global Ministries, an organization that means a lot to me. Global Ministries works with partner churches and programs all over the world that help families and communities in healthcare, increasing access to education, building wells, addressing climate change, caring for refugees, strengthening church leaders, preventing human trafficking, and so much more. Whether you donate $5 or $100, you are sharing in the Global Ministries vision that all of God’s people and creation share in God’s abundant life. Thank you!
