I appreciate your willingness to consider partnering with Barbara and me as we serve in collegiate ministry on the national level with training missionaries, mentoring leaders, and developing resources. Here is an overview of what we are looking for from potential partners:
FIRST, we need a group of partners who will make a monthly financial commitment* to us for a four year term, which is the length of our term of service. This investment goes to our salary, health insurance, retirement, and general communications package. Our new term of service started in January of 2013.
To join our team as a monthly partner, we need you to (1) fill out a faith promise form and (2) decide whether you want to donate each month via personal check, a monthly credit/debit payment, or online. You can handle both steps via paper/snail mail, or electronically.
Please go to https://giving.ag.org to start the process. Type in my last name [Olejarz] and our account # 2321016. Then follow the prompts.
A. In terms of completing a faith promise form, you can download, print, fill out, and mail in the Form with your gift, OR, complete it online. As you complete the form, fill in Michael and Barbara Olejarz, and our account # is 2321016.
B. Determine whether you want to donate each month via personal check, a monthly credit/debit payment, or online.
If giving by check, make your gift out to “Assemblies of God” (A/G) and include [Michael Olejarz #2321016] on the memo line of the check. Send your check in with the signed faith promise form and the money will get to my account. The A/G will receipt you for that gift. The receipt will have a tear-off reminder to use with next month’s gift.
If giving by credit or debit card, but not giving online, you must also download, print and fill out the Credit Authorization Form. Instructions for giving online are also posted.
If you decide to use paper, make sure all forms and checks are filled out completely and mail them to the following address: US Missions, 1445 N. Boonville Ave., Springfield, MO 65802. If you decide to handle both steps online, it will be that much easier.
That’s it! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. Please take care of these steps in the next two weeks and start sending in your monthly gift right away
SECOND, we need a group of partners who will make a commitment to pray and fast for us one day a week. Pick a day and pray that God will empower me to develop, resource, and release more leaders for the work of Christ. Pray that my investment in our area (i.e., regional) directors, and their investment in state directors and campus missionaries will result in a multiplying effect of hundreds of new staff (and thousands of churches) being mobilized for campus ministry. Pray for people interested in serving in the greatest rescue operation of all time.
To join our team as a prayer partner, simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know which day you will take your stand before God on our behalf. Be sure to check out the prayer helps page for suggestions.
THIRD, we need a group of partners who will make an annual financial commitment to leadership training and resource development projects* for the next four years. I am praying for people, churches, business and corporate leaders to invest $100, $250, $500, $1000, $1500, $2500, $5000, or $10,000 a year in what we are doing. The idea is to consider investing in one of our projects each year for a four year cycle.
See the Projects page for stuff I am working on that needs folks to champion.
To join our team as a project partner, contact me to determine where your gift should be sent. Some gifts will be sent to my missionary account at Assemblies of God headquarters, and you could follow the steps listed above under the first step to send your gift. The only thing you would not need to do is complete a pledge form. If you are already sending a monthly pledge to my account, you could add your special gift to that disbursement.
