"If you are a missionary you need to read this book! Before deputation, I was taught the fundamentals of this book by the authors themselves and recently read the book to refresh my mind. This book holds many fundamental keys to effectively raising missionary support. No other book has helped me as much in this area of pre-field ministry, as much as the Deputation Manual. It is full of practical steps to take, gives key advise, and answer many questions a missionary has about the deputation process." - NOVEMBER 21ST, 2009
This is the most practical book written on deputation that I have ever read. No where else can you find a step by step manual that shows you everything you need to know for deputation. I liked it so much I have read it 3 times. Thanks for putting something out there that actually helps and works.
Very practical and helpful when you are starting deputation. This book gives you ideas, tips, and step by step information so that you can effectively do the work of the ministry. This book is a must read when getting started doing the ministry of deputation.
As a veteran missionary involved in missionary training, I can definitely say that there is a lack of missionary training textbooks. For the missionary who raises funds the Biblical way, by faith, this manual for deputation not only fills that void, but does a spectacular job of covering the areas of concern for those on deputation. I have driven literally hundreds of thousands of miles visiting countless churches over the years, and can vouch for the fact that the author speaks from experience and gives helpful insight to the new missionary. I wish I had this book when I first started deputation. This book is specifically written from an independent Baptist perspective to independent Baptist missionaries, however the lessons and advice would help any fundraiser. Each word of advice is Biblically sound and backed by scripture. I would highly recommend this book to any missionary on deputation.
A practical look at raising support for missionaries. It really gets down to the nuts and bolts of what to do on deputation. Great advice on prayer letters, making calls, display boards, prayer cards, websites, dvd, and ministry presentation. One thing that was especially helpful was the encouragement about raising support and keeping the right heart attitude! I greatly appreciate the author's work as it has been an essential tool for my family on deputation!
This is one of those books that you will read, then re-read, and maybe read again. It's that good. My family and I are missionaries in Colombia. This book has helped us tremendously and it will be a help to you too. You'll learn about how to raise money, how much money to raise, and how to avoid common mistakes that most missionaries make while on deputation. Seriously, get this book!
This book is written for a very specific audience. If you are part of that audience then you absolutely must read this book. Also, although this book is for missionaries on deputation I believe it could really help any missionary, including he who is about to go back to the states for furlough. The Kindle edition makes it so convenient so don't hesitate!
