Our conviction is that there is not just one way, or even just one biblical way, to fund non-profit Christian ministries. The philosophy of funding that God has called FLM to is somewhat unique.
First, we are committed to providing a ministry where men, and the friends they invite, feel safe. They will never experience someone making an appeal for money. That is why we do not solicit funds through support letters, host fundraising events, or personally solicit money. We do, however, pray often, trusting that the Lord will graciously move the hearts of men who have been touched by this ministry. The Lord has faithfully upheld this ministry since 1993 through the giving of individual donors and we commit ourselves to joyfully live under God’s provision.
Second, the Ministry Associates have requested that they never know who gives nor how much or how often. They ask in order to keep their motives pure so they can invest time and effort into any of the men in the ministry and not just those whom they know give money. We have operated the ministry since its inception under this philosophy of minimal information on financial needs and no direct solicitation.
