Crown Financial Ministries Launches New Video Series

Filed under: Announcements,Changing Lives,Partners — Tags: , , — TimMc @ 1:10 am

After two years of development, Crown Financial has just released their brand new film learning experience, “God Provides.” This is an excellent series that should be viewed by leaders in every ministry and organization. We think that leaders everywhere will find this film very valuable.

What is God Provides?

“Throughout history, people have wrestled with the concept of trusting God to meet their needs versus relying on the world. Through stirring accounts found in the Bible, God reveals how He wants to be our ultimate Provider.

This film learning experience offers a rich, dramatic journey through six theater-quality, epic short films and printed companion guide that can be used for individual or group study.”

There is a total of six short films in this series. They are:

  • Widow and Oil (from 2 Kings 4:1-7)
  • Jeremiah’s Call (from Jeremiah 29:1-14)
  • Abraham’s Reward (from Genesis 12-15:6)
  • Abraham and Isaac (from Genesis 22:1-18)
  • Rich Man and Lazarus (from Luke 16:19-31)
  • Lifted Up (from John 3: 1-17)

Order the series today by visiting Crown Financial’s website. This valuable resource is a great investment.

“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”

Phillipians 4:19 (NIV)

Filed under: Announcements,Prayer Requests,Video — TimMc @ 9:09 pm

Join us at the next Finishers Forum in Fort Collins, Colorado. We will be attending and exhibiting there both days. We are looking forward to the chance to meet and interact with other believers who are passionate about reaching out to people around the world. As you know, we are focusing our efforts on West Africa. The needs in this part of the world are extensive: over 20 million people in sub-Saharan Africa have AIDS, over 11 million children are orphans, clean water is scarce, and the list goes on and on.

We are excited about our upcoming time in Ft. Collins, CO. Please pray that our time there would be fruitful and effective. Finisher Forums are an excellent way to connect with like-minded, dedicated Christians who desire to make an impact throughout the world for Christ. There will be many other ministries and organizations present at the Forum as well. To learn more about registered and attending the Finishers Forum in Ft. Collins, please visit the Finisher’s website.

Finishers has also put together a great two minute video about what you can expect when you attend a Finishers Forum. Check it out!

Words of Encouragement from Supporters of The Starfish Project

Filed under: Announcements,The Starfish Project — TimMc @ 8:31 pm


We are so thankful for the support received so far for The Starfish Project. Thank you! We are also thrilled when we hear from those who are sending in their support for The Starfish Project.

“But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” I Cor. 15:57 (NIV)

Below are a couple of wonderful comments that have been sent to us. We hope their words will encourage you as much as they do us!

“Whatever we can do to support your African project, just let us know. As you proceed down this blessed path, there will be times when you need that extra financial boost. Call upon us. I have real good vibes about this new journey of yours. God bless.” Dick

“First, my heart is truly in missions. To be a part of spreading the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the uttermost parts of the earth is of great importance to me. Obviously, there are many who would love to serve on mission teams but are unable to go themselves, but that doesn’t mean we cannot send others who can! It is a command of God that we love and care for others less fortunate than ourselves. What does Jesus say in Matthew 25:35-40, “For I was hungered and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger and ye took me in: Naked and ye clothed me ……” Let us “walk the walk” not just “talk the talk.” When Jesus comes to take us to be with Him, let Him find us working in the vineyard. Go with God Rhonda and He surely will go with you.” En Agape, Thelma

As The Starfish Project continues to be blessed through the generous giving of God’s people, we look forward to hearing from more donors. We are blessed to be in His service!

Make an Impact in West Africa with The Starfish Project for Only $1.00

Filed under: Announcements,Prayer Requests,The Starfish Project — TimMc @ 3:35 pm


We are so excited to launch our new fundraising campaign, The Starfish Project! In order to secure a ship for our maiden voyage, funds must be raised, and we need your help in doing so.

So here’s the scoop; for only $1.00, you get a physical representation of your support, in the form of a beautiful, personalized Starfish that will decorate the walls of Purposeful Africa’s ship. Consider it your way of making the voyage with us if you can’t actually physically participate.

These Starfish also make amazing gifts for others around you. Let your loved ones know that in receiving a Starfish they are helping to reach people in need and will be well represented aboard our ship.

“Don’t fail to do something just because you can’t do everything.” -Bob Pierce, founder of World Vision

Without the support of our communities, our mission would not be possible, and this is a great way to truly help spread hope and faith to those in need throughout West Africa.

Another way to help us raise money and support is through word of mouth. Tell your friends, family, and church about The Starfish Project. Send out a quick email, post our link on facebook, twitter, or your own blog. This will help us out tremendously. We appreciate your support and can’t wait to hang that Starfish with your name on it! If you wish, you may go directly to PayPal and donate your $1.00. If you feel led to donate more, simply fill in the desired amount you want to give. Please feel free to use the comment box on PayPal to let us know the names of the person or people you would like to have displayed on each Starfish. If you need more space than is allowed in the comment box, please email us the information directly at [email protected] Thanks!
