Annual Gift Renewal Letter: Sample 4
Dear (Bill and Jane),
As we think back to the beginning of this school year, it seems so long ago. We experienced many excitements—and many unknowns! Will we fit in with Colorado culture? What does life entail being in full-time ministry? Where is that dorm? And what exactly will change when we get married? With the Lord’s help, we made to the West and discovered a new life together.
As we look forward, we again sense so many excitements. Together, we will continue to lead NavBasic, a night designed for freshmen with worship and talks about Jesus, the Scriptures, prayer, evangelism, and fellowship. We will begin to lead the Joshua Team, where our students are trained to become the next generation ministry leaders. Our hearts will remain focused on intentionally meeting with students one-on-one to train them to be spiritual laborers. We will continue to receive personal and ministry training—something that has proven to be invaluable this year!
Undoubtedly, your prayers and financial support have enabled us to minister at Colorado State University. Your partnership with us has allowed us to share with students who have never before heard the Gospel. Together with you, we have developed younger believers to become tomorrow’s spiritual leaders in the church and the marketplace. Our end goal is to train students to take part in laboring to fulfill the Great Commission.
Our hope is that you will continue to partner with us as we continue serving in Colorado with The Navigators. In the last year, you gave $2,500 to our ministry. Would you pray about giving again so that we can labor at CSU next school year? If you desire to give again, please fill out the commitment card and return it to us with a check made payable to “The Navigators” in the envelope provided. If you desire to begin giving monthly, please indicate that on the card accompanied by your first check. After sending in your first check, The Navigators will send you a gift receipt with a return envelope for the next month’s gift. You can also choose to give monthly by credit card or EFT on the commitment card. If giving by EFT, please also include a check as your first payment. Thanks for being willing to prayerfully consider staying on our partnership team! Please call or e-mail us if you have any questions.
“In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the Gospel from the first day until now.” Philippians 1:4-5
