Support Partnership

A coalition of churches and individuals holding the rope

How did we send them, and how can the work continue?

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

The financial resources required far exceeded the ability of Hope Baptist and Sovereign Redeemer, and in many ways we are glad that it did. It humbled us, made us recognize our total dependence on God, and gave us the privilege of working together with other local churches and brethren.

Our church planters are not fundraisers. They are overwhelmingly 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

God has abundantly answered our prayers that there would be an unusual outpouring of generosity like what is seen in Exodus 36:3-7, so that others would 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, but there are always additional ways in which you could join us in the work. Please feel free to contact us if the Lord is moving you to join us in holding the rope.
