MAKING A DIFFERENCE
EMnation Partner Information
The New Testament model of 2 Corinthians 9:7, 10–14 is the basis of EMnation’s partnership giving:
7You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don't give reluctantly or in response to pressure. "For God loves a person who gives cheerfully."
10 For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you. 11 Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God. 12 So two good things will result from this ministry of giving—the needs of the believers in Jerusalem will be met, and they will joyfully express their thanks to God. 13 As a result of your ministry, they will give glory to God. For your generosity to them and to all believers will prove that you are obedient to the Good News of Christ. 14 And they will pray for you with deep affection because of the overflowing grace God has given to you. 15 Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words!”
EMnation’s entire financial foundation is based on faith in God, our provider, and the partnership of many who join with us in our ministries and outreaches. The Holy Spirit has given us a detailed plan for duplicating this ministry around the world. We trust God, that if He gives us instructions, He will provide the finances and laborers to carry them out.
We realize that God uses people to meet those needs and He attaches a reward to it. In the Old Testament, it was required that a tithe or 10% of their increase be given. However, we don’t ever desire to teach “obligation giving”. We are free from Old Testament obligations and now have the FREEDOM to be led by the Holy Spirit in obedience to His call for extravagant generosity. For some, it may be a percentage of their sales or paycheck. For others, it may be CRAZY FAITH obedience to give audaciously. “Giving” will look differently for the many various people we will reach. That is why we ask our partners to follow the instructions in 2 Corinthians 9:7 and let the Holy Spirit speak to them about their giving – how much and how often. We pray for partners who are cheerful givers, without reluctance and we know God will increase His generosity to them.
Thank you so much for your response to the Holy Spirit and in becoming a partner in this ministry. There are three opportunities of partnership. They are not based on how much to give but how deeply our partners choose to connect with the vision and long-term goals of this ministry.
These are partners who give generously as the Holy Spirit leads according to 2 Corinthians 9:7. As a SEED PLANTER, we simply ask that you prayerfully consider giving whenever the Holy Spirit leads you to plant a seed and, thankfully, give the amount that He puts in your heart to give.
2 Corinthians 9:10
10 For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.
God has given EMnation the mandate of Isaiah 53 to feed the poor, cloth the naked, care for the widow, orphans and those imprisoned by the enemy’s grasp. While some people are called to plant seeds at specific times, others will be called to be a consistent watering source of those seeds. Our WATERING WELL partners are those who commit to an ongoing monthly financial gift that allows for ongoing outreach and life-transformation in those we reach.
1 Corinthians 3:6-9 (AMP)
6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God [all the while] was causing the growth. 7 So neither is the one who plants nor the one who waters anything, but [only] God who causes the growth. 8 He who plants and he who waters are one [in importance and esteem, working toward the same purpose]; but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor. 9 For we are God’s fellow workers [His servants working together]; you are God’s cultivated field [His garden, His vineyard], God’s building.
UPPER ROOM 120:
In the New Testament, we read about the 120 believers in the Upper Room who were meeting for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Those 120 believers shared a common vision and in unity, they changed the world. At EMnation, we are believing for 120 Upper Room partners who are united in prayer and partnership with God’s vision for this ministry. These Upper Room partners will consist of corporations, foundations, private businesses and individuals who understand the magnitude of operating costs associated with running an international ministry. This group will not only help contribute to or raise funds for the ministry through various fundraising efforts, but will also share as an Advisory Council with full transparency to the future expansion of EMnation and its outreaches. Together we are going to EMpact the world with the message of Jesus Christ.
Acts 1: 14–15
14 They all met together and were constantly united in prayer, along with Mary the mother of Jesus, several other women, and the brothers of Jesus. 15 During this time, about 120 believers were together in one place.
