This sounds too good to be true. What’s the catch? There’s got to be a catch!
How can you really get around the need for funding, staffing, planning, etc.?
*NOTE: This Q&A is regarding the "GIVEAWAYS" & "NEEDS" Categories
There is no catch and there are no strings attached. Everything given is absolutely free.
No “credits” or “trades” or “things to do” (like signing up for something or subscribing to
this thing or that thing). It really IS that good because depends
on the greatness, goodness, and unsurpassed power of the love of Jesus Christ, as
He compels people to act in sincere kindness and goodness toward one another.
And how do you get around funding, staffing, planning, etc.? Let’s look at a couple
Say Jane (from your church) needs a computer, so she goes to
to post that need. Then Bill (also from your church) sees her
post when he browses the site. It happens he actually can give her a computer. So Bill
contacts Jane through the site & makes arrangements so he can give her the computer.
TA-DA! Need met! Or let’s say Kelly (from your church) posts that she is giving away
free painting and gardening services. Then John (also from your church) browses
and sees that Kelly is able to help him fix up some paint-jobs
and gardening at his house. So he gets in touch with Kelly through the site and the two
of them make arrangements to get the painting and gardening done. Again...need met!
Or what if your church (or other organization) needs to raise funds for a building project,
so one of your representatives posts on that you are in need of
financial support. Then people browse the site, see this post, & contact you to contribute
funds for your church (or other organization) project. And just like that...AGAIN, TA-DA!
Just stop and think about this for a moment. Did you have to use funds
to create or use this site? No. Did you have to get church staff to organize or plan or
coordinate meetings between people? No. Did you have to recruit workers to dispatch
items or provide services? No. Did you have to provide storage/meeting/building space?
No. Did you have to host events? No. Did you have to make time commitments or
schedule meetings? No. Did you have to do ANYTHING other than encourage people
to take advantage of so they can connect with each other
and meet needs? No!
Do you see how absolutely totally simple and powerful this is??
It’s THE PEOPLE themselves - NOT just church staff or church workers or volunteers -
it’s THE PEOPLE (even the “selfish” and “lazy” ones!) who do the funding, staffing,
planning, organizing, scheduling, recruiting, hosting, etc. People are already there with
their own time, talents, and other UNTAPPED RESOURCES....and they’re right there
sitting in your church & in your meetings, getting together for worship & Bible studies,
having fellowship, going on retreats, and so forth. They only need the opportunity to be
FULLY EMPOWERED to share the love of Jesus Christ. They only need the chance
to CONNECT DIRECTLY with one another, ON THEIR OWN. And your church, by
using as a FREE resource, will be a “point of connection”
where all people experience Christian love in a truly sincere, real, and tangible way.
Best of all, the kingdom of JESUS CHRIST - not just “a church” - will grow.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: When using , people are always urged to
include their church affiliation so anybody using the site can be aware of which church
they represent...this is an easy but powerful & FREE way to advertise your church!
The more people use the site and post needs & giveaways that are affiliated with
your church, the more your church will get noticed by people EVERYWHERE...
