BECOMING AN ADVOCATE

Welcome to our Advocacy page. Here you will find information about what an advocate is and how you might become one. We are currently asking the Lord to raise up advocates from among those who are already partnering with us through prayer and finances. The longer we have been serving overseas the greater this need has become as it has become more and more difficult for us to make new relationships with potential partners from our homeland. 

WHAT IS AN ADVOCATE?

img_5357The dictionary defines the word advocate as…“a person who publicly supports or recommends a particular cause or policy, or a person who pleads on someone else’s behalf.” As an advocate, you would act as an agent or ambassador on our behalf, in our absence.

WHAT DOES ADVOCACY LOOK LIKE PRACTICALLY?

In short, an advocate would help to share about our ministry with people who you are personally connected with, organize prayer groups and inform people how they can partner with us in it through prayer and finances. You can also help to connect us with churches that you know are looking to partner with new missionaries.  Advocates would also host special meetings for us when we are back on furloughs that will give us the opportunity to personally speak about our ministry to those who attend. 

If you are interested in learning more about becoming an advocate for us please email at gonzos4christ@gmail.com and we will explain what all it would entail in our specific case.

WILL YOU PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER BECOMING AN ADVOCATE?

Before saying yes to something like this and for more general understanding about advocacy we’d like to recommend an article written by pastor Mike Thieman, missionary trainer with Saving Grace World Missions titled:Becoming an Advocate for your Missionary. This is a short article that gives some of the basics and describes the importance and effectiveness of missionary advocacy.
