Why an Ebay Sunday?
We know you probably don't have to be told why an ebay Sunday is going to be a spiritually rewarding event for you and your church but here are a few reasons that we believe you should consider hosting an ebay Sunday event...
1. Church planting is an essential tool for sharing the gospel with our lost world. In fact, church planting is the most effective way to share the gospel and make new converts in our current culture.
2. Most church planters are bi-vocational and struggle financially to make ends meet. Those who plant as full time planters are often making great personal sacrifice, as well as their wives and children, in order to do so.
3. Most jobs take away time and energy from the church planter that is essential to the consistent growth of the plant.
4, A planter, their spouse, friends, family, churches, etc. can help list items on ebay, craigslist, amazon etc. working at their own pace and as it fits into their own schedules.
5. This is a way that every church and every believer can have active, hands-on involvement in the church planter's ministry and in providing for him.
6. Often the little bit of funding a planter receives is short of meeting their true financial needs.
7. Every planter needs encouragement.
8. You can have an ebay sunday event as often as you choose. Twice a year on Spring Forward and Fall Back Sunday, or four times a year in the spring, summer, fall, and winter. You can bless the same planter or bless a couple different planters through out the year. It's completely up to you and those you choose to partner with you.
9. You are investing in eternal treasures by becoming a partner in sharing the gospel with each lost soul reached by the ministry of your planter. You will be storing up for yourselves treasures in heaven where moth and rust don't destroy and thieves do not break in and steal.
10. You are pleasing the Lord by helping to care for those who minister the gospel. How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.
