Evangelism

Praise Ministries International’s philosophy of ministry is tied to Matthew 28: 18–20. PMI’s methodologies to execute evangelism in order to fulfill one of her key objectives is to go (mission), to make disciples of all nations (discipleship), baptizing them (catechism/inclusion), and teaching them (education/training) to observe everything according to scriptures.

Church Planting

Praise Ministries International’s church planting’s endeavor is the result of her methodology expressed in discipleship and training over time leading to the spiritual establishment of the church entity.

Education

Praise Ministries International educational realization and institutional establishment is the result of her methodology to institute both religious and academic institutions.

The achieving of the above objectives in Praise Ministries International is the goal of the ministry’s overall agenda. Praise Ministries International’s goal is to minister to the total man (body, soul, and spirit). Praise Ministries International believes that this can be achieved through evangelism, church planting, and education.

PMI CAPITAL CAMPAIGN’S GOAL

Praise Ministries International capital campaign’s goal is to raise $200,000.00 as the initial kick up of the campaign; notwithstanding, the Ministries might go beyond the goal based on the responses of potential donors.

PMI CAPITAL CAMPAIGN STRATEGIES

Organized Leadership

In an effort to actualize and to materialize this capital campaign, Praise Ministries International will recruit the Campaign Organizer, the Financial Recorder/Secretary, the Email or Telephone Triage individual, and the institutionalized dissemination of fliers and letters to potential donors.

The Campaign Organizer: The Campaign Organizer will recruit members, solicits for donors’ recruitment to the cost, periodically hosts meetings to give updates on the campaign, and discusses other issues with reference to the success of the campaign.

The Financial Recorder/Secretary: The Secretary will track donors, writes communications to potential donors with reference to giving, and tracks or records incoming funds and donors’ names.

The Email/Telephone Triage Individual: The individual will make calls to potential donors in order to inform, gives updates on their giving, tracks contacts with respect to donors’ emails, phone numbers, and physical addresses. The information obtained shall be shared with the recording secretary.

Communications

The Campaign team will write letters of invitations to sponsors or donors instructing them to give and will also disseminate fliers and letters with reference to the fundraising campaign. Letters will also be addressed to key church leaders (pastors) electing them as donors to the fundraising campaign.

Account Registration

The Campaign team will register the Ministries at gofundme website electing user name and password to set up the online donation platform for donors. The bank account of the Ministries will be registered and linked to paypal’s account to allow donors to give online. This maximizes the campaign team’s potential to raise more funds.

Follow-Up

The Email/Telephone Triage individual including team members will make calls, send text and email messages to donors for reminders, thanks, and other pertinent information referencing the capital campaign.

PMI CAPITAL CAMPAIGN JUSTIFICATIONS

Infrastructures Developments

Praise Ministries International has several sites being offered for the construction of schools. The two offered sites include the Lofa County with 32 acres of land and Grand Kru County with 100 acres of land. The Ministries also purchased lands in Mount Barclay and in Pineville, Police Academy Road for the construction of the school, two churches, and office building. Money raised from the campaign will go to complete the church under construction in Pineville, Police Academy Road and the construction of the Praise Ministries International Academy in Pineville, Monrovia, Liberia.

Implements/Tools

Praise Ministries International Charcoal and Agricultural Project (PMICAP) has been initiated to empower the Ministries’ financial needs, to empower individual’s initiative and creativities, and to empower community and family needs. At present, the ongoing project operates three power chain saws to carry out the project. Money raised from the campaign will go to the purchasing of the pickup trucks and additional tools for the project.

Transportation

Transportation in Liberia at present is a major problem faced by the church. The church is using money raised from tithes and offering to transport people to church on Sunday and to conferences on commercial vehicles. This is causing serious financial problems. Obtaining a church bus will alleviate this problem. Money raised from the campaign will go to purchase a bus for the church.

Land Allocation

Praise Ministries International will need mini church edifice and office in Charlotte region. Money raised from the campaign will help us secure church land for future construction of the church and office.
