As a ministry worker, raising support can be a daunting task. It doesn't have to be intimidating though. It isn't about money or asking people to give. It is about looking to God to provide for you. He has given you a vision for ministry, and now you get to invite others into that vision. Your job is to pray and work hard to discover those whom the Lord has already prepared to invest in you and your ministry. God has done His work. Now it's time for you to do yours.
A case in point: Nehemiah was very nervous about meeting with the wealthiest, most powerful man on the planet. He was asking King Artaxerxes to fund his Jerusalem restoration project. But when it came time to make his appeal, this lowly cupbearer first looked up to the Person who really provides resources. At the moment of truth, Nehemiah lifted his heart and made The God Ask. In Nehemiah 2:4 he describes the exchange: "Then the king said to me, 'What would you request?' So I prayed to the God of heaven."
Instead of going into appointments fearing what your fellow man will say, you can have confidence that God is superintending the whole process. This audiobook will help you embrace the fact that this is not a Man Ask. No. It is a God Ask!

"Inspiring the Journey"
The God Ask is an inspiring guide to entering into God's call to ministry.
I am excited to begin a new page in my journey serving in God's Kingdom, removing obstacles to be fully engaged and more productive in God's calling for me!
"34 year old missionary life change, Read it twice"
Read it twice... It'll really sink in.
As a 34 year old missionary who grew up around a very successful fundraising missionary father I'm excited to share this book with others.
I came out of the working world and began fund raising just like my dad did. This book really put fundraising in a new light....
I'm so excited to continue my fund raising but with new vigor, passion, biblical conviction, and yes strategy.
100 days here I come.
"What I needed"
Helped me see that underlying motivation is far more important than the mechanics of raising my support. At the same time, the practical advice and practices helped me think how I need to reshape what I've been doing for years. I will be re-reading or listening to this book.
wish I would have had this first time I fundraised. I will be sharing this with everyone that is on support or planning to be.
"Some serious issues with the performance"
There are some pretty significant issues and either the script that the narrator was using or he simply did a poor job of reading it at certain points. There were parts that were downright nonsensical in the way they were put together. For example, at the end of one of the chapters there is supposed to be a breakdown of how to conduct a 30 minute appointment. In the breakdown if you add up all of the timeslots he lists it adds up to 61 minutes. Perhaps this is an editing problem, but it definitely makes that entire section unhelpful.
"Good book for gaining new perspective"
struggled in the beginning. great book with giving new perspective on mission work and fundraising.
Really enjoyed reading this book. Was inspired to go out and pursue Gods calling on my life and to share the vision he has given. Sharing the vision and trusting God for the provision.
"Just what i needed to hear. life changing"
this book was awesome. just what i needed to hear. life changing. changed my perspective on giving and asking for money.
"A Must Read"
Read this book if you love God and walk in the fullness that He is calling you to walk in.
Anyone in need of raising ministry support should read or listen to this book... over and over!!
