I can’t believe this passage of scripture isn’t taught more or studied deeper.  This is one of the clearest passages about Jesus and his ministry being funded.

1 Soon afterward Jesus began a tour of the nearby towns and villages, preaching and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom of God. He took his twelve disciples with him, 2 along with some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases. Among them were Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons; 3 Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herod’s business manager; Susanna; and many others who were contributing their own resources to support Jesus and his disciples.

Let’s look at some key points that apply to your ministry:

1. The Women Who Gave Had Been “Cured Of Evil Spirits & Diseases”

People fund ministries where they find Jesus & he radically changes their lives.  This is why it is so important to be Gospel-centered, not financially-centered in your church.  If Jesus changes their life, it is EASY to make the ask.

2. Women Give More Than Men

This scripture is very clear that women were funding his ministry at a high level.  Check out THIS STUDY done on the generosity level of women.  Women are statistically more generous than men.  If this is true, why do we leave them out a lot of times when having meetings about funding the vision.  Never have a fund raising conversation of significance with JUST the husband.  Include the spouse always!  Very important.

3. The People Who Funded The Ministry Were CLOSE To Jesus

What can we learn from the text when it says, “He took his twelve disciples, along with some women”?

Jesus had many people in his ministry ask if they could go on the journey with him and he told them no.  He had people that he told them to just go back to their town.  Why would Jesus invite these women on the journey and then the text point this out?

I believe it’s a super clear passage showing the importance of cultivating relationships with High Capacity Donors.  He could have said, “No, you can’t come; just send your money.”  Jesus gave these ladies access to his life and they funded because of their life being changed and being included.  Was Jesus “showing favoritism” by knowing what they gave and having his donors on the journey? NO, he was modeling the way!

What do you think about this text?  Anything we can learn about funding that I missed?

    Great thoughts Case, I know from watching from a “close distance” these are true! To bad we can’t get the men to step up!
