ECCU Blog

by Jac La Tour

A key benefit of ECCU membership is the opportunities it creates to network with and learn from other ministries. The upcoming webinar, Proven Ways to Increase Giving to Your Ministry, is the latest example. Many of the insights and ideas you’ll hear in the webinar came from three member ministries.

Denver Rescue Mission is changing lives in the name of Christ by meeting people at their physical and spiritual points of need, with the goal of returning them to society as productive, self-sufficient citizens. We spoke with President/CEO Brad Meuli and VP of Development Griff Fryschlag, who were more than happy to share their experience and expertise.

Water Missions International in Charleston, South Carolina, is a Christian engineering organization that provides access to safe water and sanitation to people in developing countries and areas where disaster has stricken. While doing this, they share the gospel with the people they’re serving. Megan Huffman, their development operations director, talked with us about some creative ways they go about raising the funds to cover their $9.3 million budget.

Grace Evangelical Free Church in La Mirada, California, is a tight-knit congregation with an average of 900 at Sunday worship services. Rather than fundraising, they focus is on faith and discipleship to meet their $1.6 million budget. And Administrative Elder Rick Rodeheaver says that through his people there, God meets their financial needs in sometimes dramatic ways.

  1. A ministry I work with has been discussing a similar approach to the one Grace EV Free uses–focusing first on involving members/donors in the ministry’s mission. In this model, funds contributed by donors are a natural effect of the ownership they feel for the mission. I’m excited to hear more in the webinar.

    Any other blog readers have topics they’re hoping are covered?
