Support FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

1.  Peter and Liz, love you both, but $50 a month is a lot for my budget right now. (and/or) Hey! This sounds awesome! I’d love to commit more!

No worries; we have people pledging anywhere from $10 a month to $200 a month! If you’re excited about partnering with us, then offer your budget to God. Whatever God says to you is fine by us.

2.  Does it make a difference to you if I make a one-time gift instead of ongoing support?

When you commit to ongoing giving, it’s a way for you to take ownership of this mission with us—your investment becomes part of your global ministry. Setting up monthly support is the most straightforward and simplest for us to track, and is a huge encouragement to us. Plus you can set up direct debit online, so you don’t even have to worry about writing a check every month! You can commit to a quarterly or yearly gift as well.

One-time gifts are also useful, as they help us meet the budget gaps if our pledges come up short.

3.  What does “partner” with you mean anyway? Are we coming to work with you, too?

Well, you’re certainly not required to come visit us, but we think it’d be pretty awesome if you did! We think of partners like the ones Jesus had: as he and his disciples traveled through Israel, they were supported by a group of women “out of their own means” (Luke 8:3). The partnership of these women was essential to Jesus’ mission. If you’re one of our partners, you will be just as essential to the story of the Kingdom of God growing!

4.  YES! I want to help grow God’s peace with you. How do I get in on this story? Sign me up!

Awesome! You can sign up securely with your credit or debit card on the Peace Catalyst website here in the US (Just pick our names in the drop-down menu, and be sure to tick whether or not this is an on-going gift.)

5.  I have more questions!

Fantastic! We love questions. Do email us, whether they’re related to supporting us, the ministry we’re doing, or anything else! (We have a very thorough downloadable FAQ; please let us know if you want the link!)

Doesn’t a check get more actual to you without the banks taking their perccentage from cards? please answer soonest to beat Dec 2oth deadline for card donation!

Sorry for the delay! We’ve been traveling. Great question—we get the same amount of money in our account either way; it’s CRM the organization who has to deal with the processing fees. So it doesn’t technically make a difference to us, though the organization does have to pay to process cards. Thanks for asking!

———–Edited to add: It’s now 2013 and CRM has updated their policy, so check or online EFT does give us more money in our account than a Visa or Mastercard. Do get in touch with us if you have questions!
