We are created to worship God. This truth is the essence as to why Story One exists. It is the understanding that whatever path God chooses to guide us down, we are to do it all for God’s glory (1 Cor. 10:31). This includes the support-raising journey.
Story One recognizes that raising support is not a mistake. God has placed you on this road to be a mouthpiece for Him. As He is at work in every life and situation, there are stories to be shared that are an unveiled reflection of His glory. Encountering the knowledge of God’s goodness through stories is a way that leads people into worship and unites us with one purpose. Therefore, it is our desire to give people the tools to become worship leaders as they learn to invite people to participate in God’s work.
With this model, the need for money is not diminished. However, in worship-centered support raising, the focus shifts to the One whom we entrust to hold all dollar amounts in His hands. Out of this trust we worship Him for being our Provider as He is faithful and trustworthy to meet our needs. In the end, it is ultimately not the money that matters, but it is Christ’s work in our lives as He uses everything to transform us into His image in order to reflect His glory (2 Cor. 3:18).
