Your support will help G-CARDZ Global in spreading the gospel to the ends of the earth (Matthew 28:16-20).
HOW WILL YOUR SUPPORT HELP G-CARDZ?
Because G-CARDZ are a high-quality, four-color, dual-sided print set of eight cards (cut, collated & packaged), there are significant costs associated with their production. Your donation will help cover production costs and website maintenance so that G-CARDZ can help people all over the globe confidently proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who are outside of His glorious plan of salvation!
G-CARDZ GLOBAL IS NOT A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION. WHY NOT?
After personally speaking with 8 local (highly successful) Christian Business owners, I was overwhelmingly counseled to form an "LLC" rather than applying for "Non-Profit/Tax Exempt" status. At this point it allows for greater flexibility, administrative simplicity and the maintaining of a focused direction.
Rather than a "Board of Directors" I chose an "Advisory Board" of 4 godly men who love me enough to fearlessly speak Biblical truth into my life. I have set up a Business Banking Account, separate from my personal account, into which your support will be directly deposited. You will receive a receipt of this financial transaction and I will, in turn, be making quarterly reports of my revenue & expenses for accounting & tax purposes. Overall, this was personally the best way for me to serve God while still honoring the God-ordained governmental authority in accordance with my Biblical convictions and personal observations of the times in which we live.
The "Social Business" model (feel free to Google this term) bests aligns with the vision of G-CARDZ Global's dual desire to effect change "spiritually" & "socially". A "Social Business" is a non-loss, non-dividend company, and this model offers the kind of "flexibility" & "freedom" that supports my personal vision for G-CARDZ Global. It seeks to be financially self-sustainable, and the profits incurred are reinvested back into the company itself. These reinvested profits will, in turn, be used to support established Ministries/Businesses or, start-up another Businesses that engages a specific social need that falls under the heartfelt concern and umbrella of G-CARDZ Global. The following summarizes what I've written but by no means conveys the wider scope & benefits related to the Social Business" model:
- My "Ministry-objective" is to equip the saints for service by providing Biblically-sound evangelism tools and training in order to fulfill Jesus' command to "...go...preach the gospel..." (Mark 16:15)
- My "Business-objective" is to be part of the solution in overcoming "social" problems such as, poverty, hunger, homelessness, foster-adopt, etc.
- The "Investor" in G-CARDZ Global understands that he/she receives back only their investment amount, with no "dividend" given beyond the investment itself. All company "profits" incurred as a result of any "investment" stays with the company for expansion and improvement, to be determined by G-CARDZ Global and its Advisory Board.
I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say that our financial support for any ministry/organization speaks of our agreement and partnership with that ministry/organization. It is more than the "dollars & cents" that we freely give. We view them as an extension of our own lives, and therefore we seek to personally encourage those who represent our beliefs & worldview, knowing that in doing so, our support represents our "testimony of approval" & "personal partnership" in their mission. [Philippians 1:3-5, etc.]
