Founder's Club We here at Reformed Evangelistic Fellowship(REF), consider it a great privilege to help each of our Team Members fulfill the Great Commission, every single day. Over the past several years, the Lord has blessed our organization, with dozens of passionate, new candidates, serving in multiple callings and countries. With new growth, however, inevitably comes new growing pains. Our office’s capacity for serving our burgeoning list of highly qualified missionaries (both domestically and internationally), has reached an inflection point, where we’ve had to consider creative new ways to reinforce our office’s budgetary needs, without raising administrative fee (currently 9%) on our serving team members. This has been a unique challenge: how can we raise needed funds to help REF grow and retool, without raising costs for our missionaries? This is where the “Founder's Club” program comes in.
What Your Donations Will Do
In 2017, the idea was born to begin a fund to act as an extra pipeline for our financial needs, called the “Founders’ Club”. This fund greatly enhances REF’s ability to expand new projects, hire new staff, and improve our services for our team members. It’s able to do so for one very important reason: 100% of every dollar given to the “Founder's Club” goes directly into funding REF’s office needs.
In the past year alone, our faithful, skeleton crew at the office has worked to rebuild much of our services from the ground up. From: >Rebuilding a brand new REF website and interface, to >Hiring a new CPA firm to prepare tax returns, and back our books, to >Hiring new staff to streamline the application process for new candidates, to >Hosting our 1st international Conference in September 2023 in Zurich, Switzerland >Allowing us a travel budget to visit new countries we are hoping to establish ties in (such as Japan in 2023) The Founder's Club has put your dollars to work, to finely hone Reformed Evangelistic Fellowship into the most outstanding sending agency we can be for the glory of God. While it has already helped raise crucial support, however, we are still far short of our eventual, monthly goal of $10,000. This is where your generous support can truly make a huge impact for us, and our team members around the world.
How to Give
We are looking for long-time friends of REF, as well as new visionaries, to partner with us, as we create the premiere sending agency in the United States, whose distinct focus is Evangelism. So very few churches and sending agencies give adequate attention to the Gospel’s crucial call for real world evangelism. We at REF aim to be quite different in this regard. Our goal is to raise $10,000 in monthly giving, through this fund. Your recurring, monthly gift to the “Founder's Club” will help ensure that our founder's vision of creating an evangelistic safe haven,both to adequately teachand equip disciples of Christ,will flourish for a new generation of missionaries. Do you share this bold vision with us? Then we invite you to click on the donate button below. Together, with your help, and God’s blessing, we will continue to spread the Gospel for future generations!
