While Crown has been battered by the downturn in the economy for the past four years, November was an especially bad month for us, with record numbers of dollars donated to political candidates in the final stretches of the election campaign.
December was slower than normal as well. Perhaps it was the outpouring of compassionate support for Hurricane Sandy’s victims that caused a drop in giving to Crown.
All of these challenges converged. Donations are significantly down. We want you to know about it because you care about Crown’s mission, the ministry God has called us to in your own life and in the lives of millions around the world.
This valley is a time of darkness before the dawn ... the dawn of an incredible impact God is planning through Crown. In fact, we are releasing three new resources in 2013. The future is exciting. The impact is growing. And this kind of transformation is more urgently important in people’s lives today than ever before.
We are not asking you to give in order to bail us out — we do not have debt. But we are asking you to help in a very special way right now. April is a critical watershed for us.
Please pray about giving a sacrificial gift right now — to help Crown continue ministering to you and to multitudes around the world, without coming to a point of financial crisis.
