Giving Tuesday

Join us in feeding 5,000 starving children

 

How many children will thrive this month because of your generosity?

This #GivingTuesday we are responding to the hunger crisis in East Africa. Petros Network partners are on a mission to feed 5,000+ starving children in East Africa. We know this is an impossible goal, but with YOU, the impossible is possible. Join us in feeding the 5000+ with either a monthly gift or a one-time gift of just $12. 

For roughly the cost of one dinner out, you could feed a child a nutrient-rich meal every day for an entire month. 

More than 37 million people across the Horn of Africa are facing acute hunger, with approximately seven million children under the age of five acutely malnourished in the region. (WHO, July 2022)

Maybe you are feeling extra generous, and you want to help us reach our overall goal of $720,000 to feed 5,000 children for an entire year! Today is the day to give generously and give bigly. You can be part of the miracle!

 

What is Giving Tuesday?

GivingTuesday is a global day of generosity. It is a day when the impossible is possible, as people everywhere are radically generous. Last year alone, 2.7 billion dollars was raised on GivingTuesday. Nonprofits everywhere are raising support to do more good in this world, and Petros Network is no different! 

When is Giving Tuesday?
Traditionally GivingTuesday is the Tuesday following Thanksgiving; this year Giving Tuesday falls on November 29.

Make the Impossible Possible

For just $12 you can provide a starving child in East Africa with a daily nutritious meal for an entire month.

Giving can feel risky.

It’s natural to wonder how your gift will really be used when giving to a new organization.

WHEN YOU GIVE, YOUR GIFT IS:

Honored

86 cents of every dollar of your tax-deductible gift goes directly to sharing, showing, and spreading the Gospel.

An icon representing a hand full of hearts.

Multiplied

When communities experience redemptive lift, their neighbors can’t help but to take notice and, before long, hope spreads like wildfire.

Is my gift tax deductible?
If you itemize your deductions, you may be able to deduct charitable contributions of money or property to qualified organizations. Petros Network has been approved by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization (45-4131862). Additionally, Petros Network Canada is a qualified registered charity in Canada (80637 7073 RR0001).
How will I know my gift is making a difference?
When you invest with Petros Network, we will report to you the results of the church planter, the widowed woman, and the vulnerable child you have sponsored. We believe that through us, you will experience an unequaled return on missional investment, both in time and in eternity.
How much of my gift goes to overhead?
85% of your gift goes direct to the field. 15% helps us to provide support, mentorship, and build resources for the efforts in the field.
Do you help everyone in the community or just some?
We believe the gospel is for all people, and so are the blessings of his kingdom. This means that through our Redemptive Lift efforts, everyone—Christians and non-Christians alike—in the village where a church is planted will benefit from Kingdom blessings—like health and hygiene practices, medical treatment, clean water, fair governance, women’s empowerment, protection of vulnerable children, feeding initiatives, feeding programs, etc. In our mind, that everyone benefits is simply another metric that reveals the authenticity of the gospel.
Can we reach everyone who doesn’t know Jesus?

Who knows, but we are giving it our best shot. We hope that by our efforts a gospel movement will be unleashed among national churches that will touch every unreached people group with the hope-filled message of the gospel. Will everyone receive Christ? Probably not. But will everyone hear? That is our aim.

Why are there still areas that are unreached?

An Unreached People Group is an ethnic group with less than 2% evangelical presence. An unreached people group lacks enough followers of Christ and resources to evangelize their own people. Today, there are 7,033 unreached people groups.

That means 42.5% of the global population are classified as unreached. joshuaproject.net.

Why do you send indigenous missionaries/church planters?

Jesus commissioned his followers to go into all the world to proclaim the Good News to all creation (Mark 16:15). He even promised that the Holy Spirit would empower his followers to be his witness to the ends—literally, the very last place—of the earth (Acts 1:8). He said the Good News of his saving grace would be preached to all nations—literally, to all the ethnic groups—as a harbinger of the end of the age (Matthew 24:14). Petros Network is simply yet seriously taking Jesus words as our mission.

How do you count and verify new believers?
We require our indigenous church planters to report monthly how many people have responded to the Good News they preached. Our overseers travel to these villages to verify their reports. It varies from denomination to denomination, but many churches do not consider a convert a authentic Christ-follower until they have been baptized in water (Mark 16:16).
What denomination are you?
Petros Network is interdenominational. We work with 114 denominations and a variety of Christian humanitarian organizations to carry out our mission to plant churches among the unreached.
Are there other organizations doing what you’re doing?
Yes and no. No, in the sense that Petros Network has a unique missiology and methodology. But yes, as we are discovering, God is raising up like-minded organizations that are dedicated to reaching the unreached around the world. That fact convinces us that we are a part of a new movement of the Holy Spirit to finish the task of reaching the last place and the past person on earth who has not heard the Good News before Jesus returns.
