Advocace’s Motivation for Working with Christian Nonprofits


God has given me this great vision: Help Christian ministries and nonprofits reach their vision and take forward the Gospel. There could be no better way to spend my days than fulfilling this purpose.

Our team at Advocace shares this vision. We work with leaders of nonprofit organizations to ensure that more homeless people have a bed at night, more men and women receive education and grow into Christian leaders, and more families come to a point of reconciliation with one another.


From rescue missions to Christian universities, seminaries and K-12 schools to missions organizations and radio stations, my desire revolves around seeing these Christian ministries and nonprofits make much of Christ.

Maybe you have a vision that you would like to take to the next level. It would be my pleasure to talk with you about that—just give me a call or send me an email here.

Unless the board and the manager started connecting on common business and organization issues, the board would likely disconnect the Jake from the radio station. Jake and the Economics of Christian Radio When Jake saw The Listener-Supported Radio Development Outlook, he quickly deeme ...

For months, the couple looked forward to their first trip to New York City. They wanted to see two Broadway shows, a Yankees game, the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. While they prepared for their visit, the couple discovered other destinations they desired to visit: The Met, The Cloisters and other museums. With their limited amount of time the couple had to take a few moments each morning to plan their daily activities. They wanted to save time (and money) by visiting places that were close together. When the couple returned from their trip, they had stories and experiences that they told throughout their life. The couple planned to have stories for a lifetime—and they succeeded. Stories of God’s Provision Success with major gifts begins with a simple three-step written plan. 1. Desired Outcome. Simply fill in the blank saying what you desire for the end of your campaign: “God has provided enough so we may ___________________.” 2. Financial Goals. Determine the amount and the date ...
