FREED UP for MINISTRY
The Great Commission Media Ministries (GCM ministries) came to us when they were being challenged by CRA. GCM has always been a friend of mine going back to before I even started the foundation. One day, they were sharing the struggle they were going through and how they might lose their CRA registration. I listened further. “There’s nothing wrong with what you’re doing,” I said, “May I bring my lawyer into the room?” They agreed and we survived the CRA audit. GCM realized right then that they didn’t have the expertise or experience we did. It wasn’t their specialty. They had one guy who did everything—bookkeeping, etc—and he did a really good job—but he was spread too thin. So I said, “Can I offer you guys my service? I’ll take and do it for you.” So they joined us and since then they’ve seen their revenues increase at least five times. They’re just so busy involved in their ministry, they don’t want the hassle of keeping up with CRA and all their rules and guidelines. They’re ministry people. They want to do ministry. We free them up for that.
