Every year, ABC conducts an annual Graduation Offering (GO) campaign to encourage churches and friends to help us in getting the next generation ready for the Lord’s work. Without the GO, ABC would have to significantly raise tuition costs and place a greater financial burden upon the students. We teach our students to live by faith. Instead of getting government loans that usually come with strings and a future financial burden, we encourage them to work hard and to ask God to meet the financial needs for their education. In return, we try to do our part to make that load more bearable for them. That is why we need your help.
Our goal for 2020 is to raise $125,000 by June 30. Prayerfully consider these five good reasons of why you participate in the 2020 GO.
1. The world is under-evangelized.
Many years ago Jesus said, “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few.” (Matthew 9:37) That is just as true today as it was when He said it 2,000 years ago. While some countries of the world are closed to the Gospel, there are many of them that have a handful of missionaries trying to evangelize millions of people. More missionaries are needed to spread the Gospel around the world.
2. Churches in America are hurting and in need of Godly leadership.
Every week, the college receives calls and emails from Independent Baptist churches who are looking for pastors. Churches are looking for Christian workers in the areas of music and Christian education. If our Baptist churches in America are going to have leadership in the future, then we must invest NOW both financially and prayerfully.
3. The Gospel is our only hope.
In this day of polarization and hatred, many are looking for political solutions. No politician or political party can provide what Jesus Christ can. Hope, peace, and forgiveness come only by the way of the cross. The Apostle Paul was not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ (Romans 1:16) and neither should we. Part of being a Christian is making an earnest effort to spread the Gospel.
4. Young men and women are still answering God’s call to the ministry.
Teenagers are still surrendering for full-time Christian service. The call is being issued in youth rallies, Christian camps, and church services, and they are responding to the call. In a world that scoffs at those who want to serve the Lord, God’s people must seek to encourage these young soldiers of the cross.
5. ABC graduates are making a difference around the globe.
Churches are being started. People are trusting Christ. Broken lives are being healed. ABC graduates are taking the things they learned in the classroom and using them to make a difference in the world. With close to 1000 graduates in the ministry, Ambassador is seeking to change the world one soul at a time.
Over the past 30 years, God has used our graduates in a great way. We need your help for that to continue. Every graduating class produces more laborers for the harvest. Would you prayerfully consider giving to the 2020 GO? All gifts are tax-deductible and are used in the college budget to defray the rising expenses involved in educating our students. A gift for the GO is an investment in our students as they continue to prepare for the Lord’s work.
