Praise for Support Raising Bootcamp
"It is with great enthusiasm that I commend Steve Shadrach to you as your personal "drill sergeant" for this training. Steve and I share a commitment to help you reach full funding. May God bless you as you launch out. Have a great seminar!"
The Navigators, Vice President of Development
Author of seminar textbook Funding Your Ministry
"There is a vicious rumor among Christian workers and missionaries that God has run out of money to fund His work. Nothing could be further from the truth. What the Lord wants accomplished, He will make provision in a way that brings Him honor and glory. It is a privilege for those who are called to serve the Lord full time to raise their support. Steve Shadrach and his team fill a tremendous gap in missions - training Christian workers how to raise support so that they can be freed up to fulfill what God has called them to do."
Campus Crusade for Christ, Director of Ministry Partner Development
"Boot Camp invaded my paradigm of the definition of support raising and attacked it with the most powerful weapon -the word of God. Once my old perspective died, God resurrected a new passion for cultivating relationships and expanding my vision through personal support."
Women Doing Well, Speaker and Consultant
"Thank you so much for sharing your Personal Support Raising Boot Camp. What a wonderful concept! I appreciate your pressing on with the burden to assist others in raising their support more effectively."
Mission to the World, Executive Director

- Mail or e-mail this information to your accountability partner, followed by a phone call.
Essentials for Success
- We require you to guarantee at least 10 staff members (spouses included) from YOUR organization who will attend before we will agree to come to your location for a Bootcamp. If you cannot meet the requirement of 10 people, co-hosting with another local organization is also an option.
- The seminar must be held in a city with a major airport (or somewhat nearby).
- You must be able to secure a location with a 40 ft. by 60 ft. room that can be setup in a U-shape formation with padded chairs and a large LCD screen. CLICK HERE to view a model diagram of the room setup. We will allow up to 60 participants, so please keep in mind that the diagram only accounts for 48.
- You will be responsible for providing snacks, water, and coffee for both days of the seminar. CLICK HERE for a checklist of items the host organization must provide.
- You will arrange for lunch to be catered on the second day of the seminar from a local fast food restaurant (the participants will pay $5 per person to help cover the cost).

- A contract is signed that solidifies the meeting time, location, and fees.
- Your staff participants register and pay by credit card online.
- All participants must download the preparation packet from our website (CLICK HERE to download the preparation packet). Please stress how important it is for everyone to complete ALL of the preparation, or they will not receive the price discount and will not gain as much from the training.
