“In the world, those who raise funds must show potential donors a strategic plan that convinces donors their money will help to increase the productivity and success of the organization” (Nouwen, p. 51)
Fundraising success must also translate into increased significance in Christ-centered ministry. Success is simply not enough. Ultimately it must express itself in full surrender to God’s leadership.
