The financial support team enables Biblical Foundations for Freedom to continue to produce and distribute quality biblical training resources and provide Christian training instruction around the world.
If you are looking for a good ministry to invest in, consider BFF. We are a cost effective ministry providing quality training and translated materials to the growing borders of God's kingdom.
God has marvelously provided for BFF for 17 years now. Sometimes it has been financially very tight, but through God's faithfulness, we always have been cared for. We receive only about 18% through pledged giving.
Biblical Foundations for Freedom, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and offers tax-deductible receipts for those in the USA. Please note any special fund you might want to give to. If no designation is mentioned, it will be placed in the general fund.
Editing/Translation By producing several books and a seminar in the past several years, the need for help editing becomes increasingly important. We are actively involved in translating and distributing our books into different languages.
Love (Charity funds are largely used for oversea pastors, families and other ministry needs. We are acquainted with many orphans, buidling needs, etc. among the most unreached nations and those recently having the church established.)
We recognize that God might guide you into making a financial investment in this ministry. We welcome your support.
We think it is a wise investment with great return. God has given us a huge library of media-enriched Biblical training resources in our ten years of existence. If we would print just our Biblical resources alone, it require far beyond 5,000 pages.
Those from many nations around the world constantly access this website. A pastor from Hong Kong wanted the parenting materials for his ministry over the border. African pastors are eager to train their church leaders using our materials. Truly this blessing continues because of God's clear hand upon this ministry.
While deeply appreciating your contributions, we encourage you first to give your offering to your local church and only afterwards contribute to this ministry as the Lord would lead you. Or perhaps even better, put us on your mission budget!
We have provided a BFF 2010 financial summary report that you can download to see the great things God is doing through the BFF international ministry. If you would like more information about BFF income or needs, please contact me (see below).
If God would lead you to give to BFF, we welcome your gift. Over the years we find God provides for our needs through so many different means.
Consider having your church get involved in this strategic form of worldwide training. BFF specializes on the training process and has a library of its own training materials. Pass the blessing on! Invite Paul to make a presentation or send a powerpoint.
Biblical Foundations for Freedom, Inc. is reapplying for 501(c)(3) non-profit and offers tax-deductible receipts for donations and donated items and property. An email is sent as a receipt for your donation. A tax deductible receipt (see above section) will also be mailed to you at the end of the year if over $200 and residing in the United States. If you donate an item like a used laptop, ipod, iphone, etc. for pastors overseas, please state clearly the name and state of the equipment and its value.
We held two training seminars in Africa this past year and are already gearing up for another series of Christian leadership training seminars in East Asia this fall. If you would like to designate your giving only to these kind of trips, please mark on the check or note in the donations made above "STM" (Short Term Missions). 100% of the donation will go to these STM projects. Thanks!
Paul has just returned from his second trip this year for a very fruitful 33 lectures at 3 seminars in Myanmar. Though the country goes through many changes at this time, the church is alive and growing.
Paul has visited Peru already this year (2014). He is planning a trip to the Philippines. Please pray and support as the Lord leads.
Philippines: Initiating Spiritual Growth in the Church (D1)
Philippines: Reaching Beyond Mediocrity (D2)
How exciting to see what God is doing around the world! Even more special is the grand opportunity to further equip them for God's work.
Paul had fruitful trips to Malawi, Ethiopia and the Philippines in 2012. Marriage, parenting, discipleship training seminars were offered. How wonderful to see the church growing through the power of God's Word.
Our training of pastors, church planters and evangelists overseas requires funds above our regular budget. These trips have been very fruitful in the past.
Our African seminars were powerfully used of the Lord. The attendance doubled and so the costs went up but God provided, supernaturally, of course. Check out a movie summary or catch up from our prayer letters. Praise God the Lord provided the thousands of dollars needed.
Paul is planning a trip to East Asia in September. The discipleship seminars from the last two years have been tremendously helpful.
You can join on these bilingual seminars by watching the teaching here!
Read or sign up to receive our prayer letter which will give you up-to-date reports on our recent activities and needs. My wife and I have eight children ranging from 35 to 13. We attend the Oakland International Fellowship in Pittsburgh where we actively serve the Lord.
If you have any questions, we would be glad to answer them by phone, letter or email. We appreciate any suggestions, advice, prayer, encouragement and support you can give us at Biblical Foundations for Freedom!
God has given freely and so we pass on freely. We encourage you to use, adapt and pass on the materials found on Biblical Foundations for Freedom.
Many great truths have been locked up in dusty books for far too long. Even if one had invested in a large library, they are difficult to integrate into one's own notes. If you would like BFF's materials printed out or in electronic form ready for printing, visit the BFF Store.
