We Listen

The contemporary theologian Robert Jenson writes, "The world has lost it's story - not only the Jewish-Christian story, but all the other stories that fed off that story, such is the story of progress" The world may have "lost the stories", however we know that you, among countless others seek meaning and purpose in this complicated world. You seek meaningful relationships, and that peace may come into the world in a real and sustained way. We at SRM listen to your stories and we share the stories of faith that have transformed and strengthened people for thousands of years. We believe!

Please donate to help SRM meet its global ministry demands. You can help change the world!

Opportunities to Volunteer with SRM

 

 

During this Covid-19 pandemic, we are now more aware of the inter connectedness of all human beings on this fragile planet. We have seen how a single deadly virus can quickly spread to every corner of the world and grind global economies to a halt.
How does GAVI, a new company, founded in 2000, just six years before the founding of Spirit Renewal Ministries, make such an impact on the world? It happens a) because there was a dire crisis in the world, b) people took actionable steps to combat the problem, c) the message of need and hope was shared with the world, and d) individuals, organizations, and governments gave generously to fund GAVI. GAVI also knew that an ongoing stream of “ordinary donations” could not sustain its operations, so, in 2019, GAVI launched a one-day replenishment fund drive to provide the stable financial base for the next five years. Hosted by the United Kingdom, this drive yielded $8.8 billion in donations and pledges! Can you imagine!

SRM needs to follow GAVI’s example set in 2019 with its global appeal for a replenishment fund. SRM needs a champion who will spearhead this initiative to help prepare and implement an appeal to fund a firm and stable financial foundation to allow SRM to respond to global ministry demands over the next five years. You may be that person! Please donate to help SRM meet its global ministry demands - YOU can change someone's life in ways you can never imagine!
