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 Bootcamp!"
The Navigators, Vice President of Development
"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."
Cru, Director of Ministry Partner Development
"Bootcamp 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 Bootcamp. 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

SRS Bootcamp is led by a rotating team of facilitators who have many years of experience in personal support raising and training others, and they each still live and minister on support. They each have a passion to help Great Commission workers worldwide be spiritually healthy, vision-driven, and fully funded.
Essentials for Success
