THE BACKPAGE: WILL AN ECONOMIC SLOWDOWN AFFECT YOUR FINANCES?

What’s been your experience now, and in the past? Will a slow-down in your sending nation or in the global economy affect your capacity to minister? Here are some pertinent questions:
*** If your support is mostly from individuals (as opposed to most from church budgets), do you feel you take a bigger “hit” during slow-downs?
*** If you mainly get support from one-time gifts (as opposed to budgeted monthly income), do you feel those one-time gifts drop off in hard times?
*** If you’re sent out by folks in the USA, do you anticipate gaining anything through the 2008 tax rebate (incentive) program?
*** If you *do* feel your ministry will suffer in economic slow-downs, what strategies have you formulated to minimize that impact?

In times of trouble, these are the questions that haunt men’s (and women’s) souls. Got an opinion? Just click on “Comment” below.
