Projects & Action Plans for 2013!
It’s exciting when God begins to plant a seed in your heart for the direction He has planned for you, but it’s even more exciting when you begin to see the vision take shape. As we begin to put substance to our dreams and ideas for “The Fellowship of Young Christian Professionals” organization, the following projects are beginning to emerge:
1. Fund Raising – as a non-profit, 501 (c) (3) organization we depend completely on the generosity and donations of the businesses, organizations and individuals who believe in our vision and are led and equipped by God to help us. In the last year we’ve had several very generous people to sacrificially contribute to make this organization possible and we are eternally grateful. We will share more about our financial philosophy & strategy as well as explain how you can get involved and help in our blog on Friday of this week.
2. Communication – This is vital to any organization or business. In the corporate world we call this marketing. It’s critical that we create a brand that people will recognize and trust. It’s also very important to make people and businesses aware that an organization like ours exists. Ultimately the most important communication is to the young adult community so that they realize this resource is available to help and support them. In order for this to happen we must affectively communicate to the world around us in a way that they can easily learn about who we are and what we offer. There are currently two ways we are doing this:
First – we are using electronic means such as this blog page, Facebook, Twitter, email, and the Bill Crockett Ministries web page (www.billcrockett.com where all of these electronic resources can be accessed). We are in the process of creating a special web site just for “The Fellowship of Young Christian Professionals” (www.fycp.org). We are hoping to have this up and running before Christmas of this year. We have already secured a third web domain for a future web site that will feature online video teaching, interviews and testimonies from various successful Christian business men and woman as well as young adults themselves. It will also be a place where we will be able to post video seminars and training web cast. The web address for this will be www.fycp.tv. We are hoping this resource will be online sometime in Q3 or early Q4 of 2013.
Second – the most affective form of communication is a personal recommendation and word of mouth. We are praying for God to send us several partners who will not only help us financially but will become the mouth piece of this ministry around the world as people begin to see the affect it can have on our world through the lives of young adults. We would love for you to be a part of our “Communication Team” by simply telling young adults and others about this ministry. You can point them to our web site www.billcrockett.com to find out more about what’s happening. We will have more information soon about how to become an official “Communication Team” member and what that means.
Tomorrow we will share two more projects that we believe to be critical to the success of this ministry. We are thankful that God has asked us to take on this vital work of reaching and equipping young adults in today’s world. Please pray for God to give us wisdom and courage to follow Him faithfully and humbly!
Until tomorrow, may God bless and use you today!
