Ways to Support Ligonier’s Outreach this #GivingTuesday
Ligonier Ministries has been sustained for more than four decades by the generous gifts of God’s people. We are an international Christian discipleship organization founded by theologian Dr. R.C. Sproul in 1971 to equip Christians to articulate what they believe, why they believe it, how to live it, and how to share it. In obedience to our Lord’s Great Commission, we faithfully present the unvarnished truth of Scripture to help people grow in their knowledge of God and His holiness. Last week we introduced you to Derrick as we shared the story of God’s grace in his life. There are hundreds of these stories we hear every year at Ligonier.
Outreach in 2013
As we look back on 2013 it has been a significant year for our outreach. Internationally, we co-sponsored conferences in the United Kingdom, strengthened our partner in Brazil to make Ligonier resources available in Portuguese, and have continued working with other organizations to distribute Reformed teaching in Chinese, Vietnamese, and Spanish. A new church history podcast was launched, more courses were added to Ligonier Connect, and eighty new stations for Renewing Your Mind have all borne fruit both domestically and internationally. In May we graduated the first class of Reformation Bible College, an institution made possible by gifts to our capital campaign totaling nearly $10.9 million from Ligonier supporters.
Today is the second annual #GivingTuesday. As we are often asked, we thought today was an appropriate opportunity to point out the many ways you can support our work, including one-time gifts, monthly support, employer matching gifts, and planned giving. Every gift—no matter the size—is needed, appreciated, and put to work immediately.
In addition to the traditional giving methods linked above, there are now new and innovative ways for you to easily support Ligonier in your regular online activities.

Whatever method you choose, we are grateful for everyone who chooses to support the Christian education mission of Ligonier Ministries. We are committed to the highest standards of stewardship of the funds you entrust to us, knowing it is ultimately God to whom we must give an account. Your gifts empower our worldwide outreach and we thank God for you (Phil. 1:3). In His sovereign grace, those of you who offer your prayer and financial support make it possible for Ligonier to engage the hearts and minds of Christians to help equip them to effect change in every sphere in which God places them — in the church, in their homes, and in culture.
