How to Write a Grant

Psalm 61:1-4 KJV
Hear my cry, O God;
attend unto my prayer.
From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee,
when my heart is overwhelmed:
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For thou hast been a SHELTER for me,
and a strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever:
I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.

Funding for faith based programs comes from many resources. Some of those include, in kind gifts, donations and funding from grants. Funding from a grant is an important source of income for start up not for profit organizations and for organizations that have plans to expand programs or services.

Overcoming Temptation: We Have the Tools

Temptation isn't talked about a lot anymore in church. In fact, we honestly don't talk about sin a lot. And yet, this is something we need to talk about because it is woven into the very fabric of our lives. We may want to ignore it, but the fact is, we sin. We are sinners and we sin. Just because we don't talk about it, doesn't mean that the problem doesn't exist.

Ten Things Someone Might Need From You

I've been working on a presentation for folks who are working in difficult areas of ministries. Since I'm a wheelchair user, I'm supposed to offer a seated perspective of things people have done that have been helpful and some that haven't.

Here's my list so far. Hopefully you'll help me with something I've missed.

Keeping "Professional Distance"

Some schools actually instruct therapists not to "insert their own personalities" into the counseling process and discourage them from sharing anything at all about themselves with counselees. Yet. I believe that it is possible to maintain a balance between over-involvement and being so objective that those we work with never see our "human" side.

A. The benefits of "self-revelation" in the counseling process
There are many good reasons to share our own spiritual journeys with those we seek to help, especially if we ourselves have overcome an addiction to drugs and alcohol.
