This is an appeal to readers of this blog and of Exchange: The Journal of Mission and Markets. The ministry of Eden’s Bridge, to be a point of connection and communication for marketplace Christians and marketplace ministries, is not a full time job (yet) but includes activities that have related costs. One such is my current involvement in the Lausanne Global Business-as-Mission Think Tank. The Think Tank Congress will convene in Chiang Mai, Thailand the last week of April, 2013. I have been active in (and hopefully significantly contributing to) in the Think Tank’s Advocacy and Mobilization Issue Group. I would very much like to attend the Congress to help finalize plans to reach out to engage increasing numbers of individuals and organizations in bringing the Gospel to the marketplace and especially among the unevangelized global poor.
To attend the Congress and to cover other incidental expenses of Eden’s Bridge, I need to raise $4,000 in the next eight to twelve weeks. That is just forty people or organizations committing to $100.oo (USD) each. Gifts can be made through my web site at https://edensbridge.org/support-edens-bridge-and-exchange-the-journal-of-mission-and-markets/ via PayPal or checks mailed to the ministry office at Eden’s Bridge, 991 Lancelot Drive, Norcross, GA 30071. All gifts are 100% tax deductible.
The Church is at the forefront of an amazing move of God in the marketplace, a coming movement acknowledged by many prominent evangelical leaders including the likes of Billy Graham. Eden’s Bridge, as a communications link within this movement has the opportunity to help a multitude of people expedite this movement by sharing information and helping push the envelope in missional initiatives and biblical thinking.
Would you please prayerfully consider being One of the Forty who facilitates Eden’s Bridge as we blast into 2013 for the cause of Christ?
I pray that you are well as you read this and that you have a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous, godly New Year.
