You’ll want to be a part of this!
Sometimes in life we reach certain milestones that are truly significant! Our life’s milestones will almost always help us grow or change who we are as a person or as an organization in some important way. 2020 provides this unique opportunity for Operation Inasmuch and for YOU.
2020 is the 25th anniversary of Operation Inasmuch! This is a wonderful time of reflection and dreaming. A time for not only looking back but forward at how God might continue to use Inasmuch to enhance churches’ efforts to reach their full potential in compassion ministry. Because God has given and blessed this tool of compassion ministry so generously, we are launching a 25 for 25 Campaign.
Our 25 for 25 Campaign is multifaceted. It will include times of celebration, ministry, and fundraising for growth. First, along with Snyder Memorial Baptist Church in Fayetteville, NC, we will celebrate 25 blessed years of compassion ministry. We hope to honor the remaining members of the original Missions Committee who planned the first event, as well as participate in the Snyder Memorial Inasmuch Day on March 28.
Our focus then turns to the thousands of churches that have used this model of ministry through the 25 years. The campaign will encourage churches to conduct an Inasmuch Day or United event in 25 states/nations at a time that works best for them in 2020. Let us know if your church already has an event scheduled. Maybe you have not conducted an Inasmuch event in some time. You’ll want to be part of the Compassion Revolution during 2020. Let us know how we can help you.
Finally, our campaign focuses on mission growth. One very generous donor has pledged $25,000 toward this campaign with the intention that we would raise an additional $25,000 in matching funds. We want the footprint of this ministry to reach farther and wider that ever before. These funds will go toward several initiatives to help more churches mobilize more church members to serve more people more often. Some of the initiatives will include: video series inspiring more churches to join the Compassion Revolution, training events in multiple states for networks of churches that want to serve their community well, and establishing an online Inasmuch Network offering churches a way to unite, network, pray, and build solid relationships with the intent of better serving the least of these.
The overall vision for this ministry is that we see a Compassion Revolution sweep across the nation. This will not happen with you! YOU can join the revolution this year. YOU can be the light that YOUR community needs. YOU can make a financial gift, which will be doubled, to grow the impact this ministry can have for the next 25 years.
