Support Partnership

A coalition of churches and individuals holding the rope

How will we send them?

We understand that this must be an endeavor built on prayer and aided by many brothers and sisters in Christ.

The financial resources required far exceed the ability of Hope Baptist and Sovereign Redeemer, and in many ways we are glad. It humbles us, makes us recognize our total dependence on God, and gives us the privilege of working together with other local churches and brethren.

Our church planters will not be fundraisers. They will overwhelmingly be focused on spreading the good news of Jesus and establishing healthy, biblical churches in Turkey. Their primary sending churches (Hope Baptist and Sovereign Redeemer) are fully committed to identifying, cultivating, and maintaining the additional relationships needed to provide their support.

We find this compelling and are fully committed. Prayerfully consider joining with us.

If you would like to give, the following information applies to options offered at the "Give" button below:

  1. By credit card, either as a one-time gift or regularly on a schedule you choose. While very convenient, there is a fee of 2.3% of the donation plus $0.30 for each transaction.
  2. Set up to give by ACH bank transfers. This probably makes most sense for regular giving, being the most financially efficient method, as the fee is only $0.25 per transaction (no percentage of the donation goes to a credit card company).

(If you would prefer to mail a check, inquire at info@HoldTheRope.org and an address will be provided to you.)

A word to individuals: Please let this represent “above and beyond” giving, having already given generously to your local church.

A word to churches: We are not looking to dilute the investments of churches that already have compelling missionary partnerships. If you have that, stay focused on helping those partners to the greatest extent possible, and the Lord richly bless your efforts! We are looking to identify churches who are seeking a compelling missionary partnership where one doesn't already exist.

Give

These are the current needs:

  • The deployment fund. This fund was created to deploy these two families and establish them in Turkey, to pay them in the early months of their deployment, and for an emergency fund. By God's grace it has been more than fully funded. Praise the Lord for His tremendous generosity towards us through His people!
  • Ongoing monthly support. A longterm partnership is needed to financially support the ongoing work. The work is being strongly supported by a partnership of churches and individuals/families, but there is still a level of need if you are interested in joining the partnership.

We are praying that there will be an unusual outpouring of generosity like what is seen in Exodus 36:3-7, so that others will have to be restrained from giving.

And they received from Moses all the offering which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of making the sanctuary. So they continued bringing to him freewill offerings every morning. Then all the craftsmen who were doing all the work of the sanctuary came, each from the work he was doing, and they spoke to Moses, saying, “The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work which the Lord commanded us to do.” So Moses gave a commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, “Let neither man nor woman do any more work for the offering of the sanctuary.” And the people were restrained from bringing, for the material they had was sufficient for all the work to be done—indeed too much.

In many ways God in His goodness has made this a reality, strengthening our faith that He will incline a few more hearts to close the remaining gap.
