Dear Family and Friends of ARM,
We have had an incredible year of ministry. 1,500+ people touched by ARM ministry in the Methodist churches of Barbados, 1,200+ in church renewal events in the US, 1,121 at the Aldersgate Conference, 1,000 at the Aldersgate conference in the Philippines, 303 people at events at the ARC, 297 through regional fellowships, not to mention the folks that called or dropped by the office needing encouragement or resources. Through your generous giving throughout the year we are able to continue to provide these ministries.
As a reminder, we do not receive any funding from the United Methodist Church. Unlike the local church where a weekly offering is taken to provide for the needs of the body, our vital source of income is from the generous gifts of our partners and thru offerings at events. We need your help. At this time we find ourselves short to meet all of our obligations.
While you are considering giving, please know we have several donors who are willing to make a matching gift dollar for dollar up to $60,000. So, right now, the first $60,000 given would double the impact on those who will receive the life-changing ministry through ARM! Your year-end gifts will provide for the operational needs of ARM including the salaries and benefits of our anointed and impactful staff, the maintenance of our facilities that hospitably serve our guests, and relevant technology that efficiently serves the people ARM reaches. God can use you to make all the difference... to those who are on the edge of giving up, giving out, and giving in. Are you willing to leave a mark, a legacy, by giving to ARM? God will be glorified in and through it all.
Because it is a matching gift, only what is received is matched. The good news is we have received 17,648.00 towards our 60,000.00 match gift goal (as of 12/22/2015). If we don't receive a year-end gift, we also don't receive the matching dollars! All I ask is that you would pray and ask the Lord what He would have you give above your regular offering.
My first Aldersgate experience was in 1998 in Dallas, TX. My wife Betty, son Christopher and I were witnesses to God’s amazing outpouring on this ministry. At a time when ARM was asking the question, “Is our season over?” God revealed Himself in a mighty way to say “I am not done with you.” I have that same quickening in my spirit as Gary Moore did in 1998. God is about to move in a mighty way! At a time when there is much uncertainty about the future of this world, I feel God has set us apart for a time such as this. We are blessed that Gary had the foresight to make a video about God’s mighty move and outpouring on and in the life of this ministry. We have placed that video on our website to encourage you as we press into the move of God for this season. Just go to at AldersgateRenewal.org/impact If you have trouble seeing this on our website let us know and we will send you a DVD with this amazing story.
Thank you for your love, prayers and support of this ministry.
