With your help, Ligonier Ministries can press on in helping the church reach the world with the gospel. Your year-end gift to Ligonier is vital for ministry in this decade and beyond.
As a church historian, I’ve been able to study the work of God and His people in many different eras. The pandemic, political upheaval, financial turbulence, and other issues we’ve experienced in 2020 might be new to many of us, but the church has had to deal with such things before. And the church has always been most effective in dealing with these problems when it has remained faithful to its mission of making disciples of Christ, teaching them everything He has commanded (see Matt. 28:18–20).
This was true in the Apostolic period, in the era of the church fathers, during the Reformation, and beyond. It will be proven true in our era as well. If the Lord should tarry, when historians look back on the twenty-first century, they will identify the faithful church as the one that, in the face of real difficulties, consistently and unashamedly taught the whole counsel of God to all people.
I am thrilled to serve as the chairman of Ligonier’s board of directors because Ligonier is assisting the church in teaching everything that our Lord has commanded. Dr. R.C. Sproul founded Ligonier for that purpose, and by God’s grace, Ligonier has continued in this mission for five decades. This has been true in 2020 as well, as Chris Larson, Ligonier’s president and CEO, recently wrote to you.
In a year when many Christian organizations had to pull back on their outreach, Ligonier has been able to expand our ministry and come into contact with more people than ever before. Ligonier’s translation projects, global partnerships, teaching resources production, teaching distribution, and other initiatives continue to increase even in this challenging moment.
The year 2021 marks fifty years of Ligonier Ministries, and your gift is vital for continuing this mission of proclaiming the truth of God’s Word to the world. If you have already given, thank you. If not, please prayerfully consider how your gift of any amount will help meet the rising demand for Ligonier’s Bible teaching as we move into 2021.
I believe that the Lord has great things in store for the outreach of Ligonier. Your gift will make ministry happen and will go a long way toward meeting our year-end funding needs. Thank you for standing with Ligonier in proclaiming the whole counsel of God.
