The primary way is through communicating to those who want to invest in your development as a disciple of Jesus. Through letter or email, combined with a personal visit or phone call, convey the unique opportunity you have in the City Project. This is more than a mission trip. It is a holistic development of right thinking about God, a vision for the church, and a love for the people of the world.
You should start having these conversations as soon as you turn in your application. You don’t have to ask for money yet, but especially to those you know well, begin talking about the City Project and share your excitement with them. Have your letters ready to mail upon acceptance. After your official acceptance into the City Project, we will train you how to raise support and you will be given sample letters and other resources to use.
