Indeed, we need $25K to make budget for the year ending. Beloved, any amount will tremendously help. Almost 1,000 people will receive our donation letter. If all thousand gave $25 before the end of the year we would meet our modest budget. If all 1,000 pledged to give $20/month next year our ministry would be easily sustained.

A note from our Director:
Happy Thanksgiving Beloved,
Rod & Staff Ministries exists to equip the saints to counsel the saints. To borrow from CCEF, we want to see Christ restored to counseling and counseling restored to the church. This is our goal because it is God’s goal. We want this because it is LIFE.
Peter tells us that all things (and he means ALL things) that have to do with life and godliness are found in the knowledge of Him—that is knowledge of Jesus’ glory and excellence:
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence
(2 Peter 1:3).
Those who try to live a life devoid of the knowledge of God are doomed to worry, anger, fear, despair and even hopelessness. Moreover, any and all supposed solutions absent of knowledge of Jesus will only compound the problems.
To be sure, this knowledge is no mere mental assent; it is life-altering, life-entrusting commitment to our faithful Creator (cf. 1 Peter 4:19). That trusting knowledge of Jesus…leads to LIFE and GODLINESS.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
In order to offer a seat at the table to as many as possible, we charge our students only 10% of our operating costs, (after fundraisers & the other earned income).
For the rest of our operating costs, we need donors and those who have feasted with us who want to bless others with a spot at the table in the future.
So we train. We train believers so that they can give life-imparting knowledge of Jesus to anyone suffering in this life. We train believers to minister Jesus to those hurting—those stung by this fallen world and mistreated by other fallen people. And in doing so, many are actually counseled, actually helped, and actually instilled with hope.
Our vision has not changed in 22 years of ministry. We long to see more trained counselors planted in churches all over Indiana and even the world. These counselors will help many by pointing to Christ, revealing God’s good purposes in pain, and encouraging counselees to trust God more. Seeing Jesus in the storm changes everything.
We need your help to see our vision sustained. We need your prayers—prayers that admit absolute dependence upon the Spirit to change hearts, grant faith and instill hope. We need your help in offsetting costs for both training and counseling. We offer training at prices below our costs and counseling well below market value.
Would you consider helping us continue to train the saints to be instruments of God—for His glory and the good of the redeemed? Indeed, we need $25K to make our budget for the year ending. Beloved, any amount will tremendously help. Almost 1,000 people will receive this letter. If all thousand gave $25 before the end of the year we would meet our modest budget. If all 1,000 pledged to give $20/month next year our ministry would be easily sustained.
Would you be pleased to help us point others to life and godliness?
10,000 Blessings in THE Wonderful Counselor,
