From Brad Melton: Would appreciate this as a podcast discussion topic – entrepreneurial tent making vs. full-time missions support raising. Experiencing this with some good friends who are full-time fundraising for the mission field. Other friends are firm in their opinion that tent making is the correct approach.

Just to be super awkward may I throw in the George Muller card. That guy did all his work never asking for a penny. Built orphan houses and fed thousands. Was donated millions and never asked for a penny.
For him he relied on God for the money and just did what he knew God wanted him to do.

Brad Melton
Yep. Thanks, Chris. Would very much appreciate that third approach thrown into the mix as well. Focused my plea on just FT vs TM because these are the two viewpoints predominantly at odds among my friends, as well as the two focused on by this blogger review. However, I agree the conversation needs to include all options -especially the holistic trust in God approach you mentioned. Perhaps the topic should be titled “What is the best/correct strategy for missions support?”

Are short term mission trips good stewardship?

Note to self: Don’t workout at the gym while listening to @mygospelfriends. Giggling in the middle of a squat is awkward. Seriously, some of THE best marriage commentary and advice I’ve ever heard. Great stuff. Stealing it all 🙂
