Time, talent and treasure

shutterstock_183315431My favorite memory from this year’s Inclusion Fusion Web Summit occurred on Wednesday evening. We were sending out personal invites to the worship service featuring Jeff Davidson’s message, and in going through my Facebook friends, I came across person after person who had made an essential contribution to the work of our ministry. It was overwhelming to remember the ways in which so many have contributed to the work of Key Ministry.

For us to do the ministry we do with a relatively limited budget, it’s absolutely essential for our supporters to contribute their time, talent and treasure in support of the mission. Next to the privilege to participate in God’s work, our greatest satisfaction comes from being able to do ministry with other people. We’re offering you the opportunity to honor God while having fun at the same time!

As we finalize our plans for next year, we invite our readers and supporters to “get in the game” by sharing your time…

KM Facebook Screen ShotYou can help us to make online church available for much more of the day by making yourself available as an online host for a designated one to three hour block of time each week, or by agreeing to host an online worship service each week to which you would invite friends and families you know who would be blessed by the opportunity to attend church through our online platform.

You can help us reach more people through serving as part of our social media team. Do you spend lots of time on Facebook? You can help us by “liking, sharing and commenting” on our Facebook posts…the more that followers share and comment on our posts, the more likely it is that that others will discover the resources we post. Spend too much time on Pinterest? Help us by “pinning” our posts.

Have a talent we can use? Do you have experience in fund development? Any experience with intellectual property law? Graphic design? Some other gift set or talent that can contribute to our ministry? We can use you!

Your financial gifts help to cover the production costs for adding additional online church services for families impacted by disability, allow us to expand the availability of free consultation to more churches looking to serve kids with disabilities and allow us to put on events like Inclusion Fusion that serve hundreds of church leaders and families here in the U.S. and beyond.

Here’s how you can “get in the game.” Click here to let us know a little bit about yourself and how you sense you might be led to lend your time, talent and treasure to our ministry adventures in 2015 and beyond.
