Seedbed is a mission. Seedbed has a business.
So where does fundraising come in,
and what happens to those funds?
For starters, we don’t see ourselves as “raising funds.” We receive funds. We share opportunities and vision. God brings provision through the generous giving of our Seed Team.
We receive those funds and convert them into all manner of seeds for all manner of sowing. And mind you, this is extravagant sowing. As noted, Seedbed sells resources, but we give away far more in resourcing than we sell. Our business is efficient. Our mission is extravagant. For instance, Wake-Up Call is given away. Discipleship Bands resources are given away. Scholarships for courses are given away. Many New Room tickets are given away or are otherwise subsidized in scholarship. Many of our gatherings, online and otherwise, are offered at no cost to participants.
This is how Jesus’ kingdom works. Many people freely receive from Jesus through Seedbed. Many then freely give back to Jesus through Seedbed. We freely receive those gifts, and we turn around and give more away.
When you give to Jesus through Seedbed, your gifts are actually expanding the mission of extravagant sowing into new fields and extending the work of sowing for great awakening far beyond anything the few people on our team could do.
Each year Seedbed creates and gives away more than a million dollars’ worth of resources. This is only possible thanks to the generous financial support of more than 6,000 sowers on what we call the Seed Team. Through their contributions to the Great Awakening Fund, they have formed a community of support for a new work of God in our day.
We invite you to partner with us financially as we focus on a few key initiatives, including the Wake-Up Call.
We need the support of those who share our belief in the power of God’s love to awaken and transform this world. Please consider joining us on this mission to sow the love of Jesus in hearts, homes, churches, and cities across our country and throughout the world.
Sponsor the Wake-Up Call
Wake-Up Call provides a daily encouragement to shake off the slumber of our busy lives and turn our eyes toward Jesus. Each morning our community gathers around a Scripture, a reflection, a prayer, and a few short questions, inviting us to reorient our lives around the love of Jesus who transforms our hearts, homes, churches, and cities.
Wake-Up Call (formerly The Daily Text) has grown to be much more than a daily reflection sent over email. Through the encouragement of the Wake-Up Call community, we’ve birthed:
- A Facebook Group
- A prayer movement
- A fasting community
- Wake-Up Call Reading Groups
- Multiple book series for individuals, groups, and churches.
It takes daily effort from nine different Seedbed team members and monthly investment into multiple technologies to sow Wake-Up Call and its related initiatives as freely as we do. We’re deeply committed to this ongoing, transformational work, and welcome you to join hands with us as we continue to sow this resource into our communities and expand its reach to new channels and audiences.
“One of the most powerful and important Words for the Body of Christ, brilliantly articulated and explained. Am using your devotional as the foundation for ministry and discipleship to others. Thank you. All glory to God!” —Sandra S.
