Planning to raise support to cover your fee and expenses?

Build a Team

You are now preparing for a short-term mission trip with Life Action Camp. As you prepare to come and serve, we strongly encourage you to build a team of prayer and financial partners to help cover the CREW fee, any travel expenses you may incur, and any other costs associated with being away from home. Consider enlisting your church, family, and friends to provide prayer and financial support for you while you come serve with us.

We really would like to see you reap the benefits of this biblical model of ministry. As always, if you have any questions or need help in this area, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We love to see God provide and work through this process!

How should I do this?


Ask God to clarify your financial needs

Namestorm a list of people

– Asking the leadership of your local church would be a great place to start
– Family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.)
– Friends (and/or their parents) can also be good to ask

Map out a plan

Meet with church leaders and local contacts, send letters and emails, utilize Facebook, etc.
**Note: any funds you raise need to be donated directly to you and do not qualify for tax deductions

Follow Up

Remember, it’s about relationship – once you’ve initially contacted people, don’t leave them hanging

Express Thanks

Thank-you cards never go out of fashion!
**Note: people will be more inclined to partner with you again if you promptly and appropriately express thanks
