Support, Donations, Personal Gifts

Regarding Propempo Fees for Services


Propempo International is a faith-supported ministry. By this we mean that Propempo is supported primarily through free-will donations from local churches, individuals, and other entities with spiritual concern that the ministry and purposes of Propempo be fulfilled, to the glory of God. As such, all activities and support of personnel are dependent upon God through His people for sustaining the ministry of Propempo. The generosity of financial support partners is complemented by the generous grace giving of those who directly benefit from the ministry of Propempo.




It is the desire of Propempo, depending on the availability of funds from other sources, to serve like-minded churches and their missionary concerns free of charge.


This policy is ideal. Realistically, a significant percentage of needed support comes from charitable donations toward honoraria, expense reimbursements, and remuneration for teaching, preaching, training, mentoring, counseling and consulting activities. Such income is gratefully received and enables us to continue serving others through Propempo ministry.




Increasingly we find that churches press us to suggest a reasonable donation structure. In today’s economic climate, and following the advise of godly counsellors, doing so may be useful. So, what we believe to be reasonable and appropriate guidelines are available.


Many missions issues and/or resource recommendations are available on our web site or through a simple phone consultation and/or email exchange. We trust that the value of Propempo ministry through initial contact will develop into a more sustained and personalized teaching/training relationship. A formal letter of engagement may be developed for longer-term relationships, retreats, training, etc. Services and your church’s financial participation largely depend on the church’s capability, generosity, and need. Any church receiving services should understand that teaching, mentoring, and consultation rendered have considerable value, based on experience, specialized expertise, and resources. It takes time to prepare, study, and gather information unique to the church for analysis, reflection, and recommendation. Time commitments to a church usually include travel and, often, an intense schedule of interaction with leaders and participants. So, we encourage churches to prayerfully consider these factors when assessing the value of Propempo ministry.




Suggested Donation Structure:


Realistically, a significant percentage of needed support comes from charitable donations toward honoraria, expense reimbursements, and responsibilities in teaching, preaching, training, mentoring, counseling and consulting activities. Such income is gratefully received and enables us to continue serving others through Propempo ministry. Increasingly we find that churches press us to suggest a reasonable donation structure. Following the advise of godly counsellors, we submit the following for your consideration. These guidelines give only a broad range based on what churches have given in the past; they are only provided upon request.

Policy on Personal Gifts


On special occasions, such as a birthday, anniversary, or special holiday, people like to be a blessing by giving a personal gift above and beyond regular ministry support. Checks for personal gifts should be made out to the individual rather than to Propempo. Propempo will make sure that the individual receives the funds. Personal gifts to individual staff are not tax-deductible. Checks made out to Propempo with instructions to designate it as a personal gift, will be deposited by Propempo and added to the individual’s remittance as a “bonus”. Such gifts are tax deductible and the “bonus” income reported as taxable income to the individual. Thank you for your kind generosity to our ministry staff!

Conflict of Interest

As recommended by Capin Crouse LLP:


“In the course of meetings or activities, I will disclose any interests in a transaction or decision where I (including my business or other nonprofit affiliations), my family and/or other related parties, employer, or close associates will receive a benefit or gain. After disclosure, I understand that I will be asked to leave the room for the discussion and will not be permitted to vote on the question.”





Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith


  1. The sixty-six books of the Bible comprise God's uniquely inspired Word. The Bible is inerrant and infallible in its original manuscripts. It is authoritative and sufficient for all of Christian faith and practice. It is best understood through normal (literal­grammatical-cultural/historical), contextual interpretation.
  2. God is one but eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  3. Jesus Christ is the unique God-Man sent to reveal God to us and vicariously bear the sins of those who would believe on Him for salvation. His death on the Cross provides the only means of salvation; His bodily resurrection validates justification by faith alone in Him. He will return a second time to judge all people and rule over His Kingdom.
  4. The Holy Spirit's role within the Godhead is to glorify the Son, to convict people of sin, and to serve as an agent for the inspiration of Scripture, the incarnation, and the Creation. He fulfills God's purposes through regenerating, indwelling, and assuring believers, as well as distributing spiritual gifts to them. He guides and enables believers in sanctification and illumination of the truths of Scripture.
  5. Every person, apart from Jesus Christ, is born with a sinful nature and is totally incapable of the perfect holiness required to escape God's judgment. No one has the means, of themselves, to earn salvation or grace to any degree.
  6. Salvation is completely the work of Jesus Christ, and applied by the Holy Spirit. God's grace in saving people has nothing to do with any merit in those He saves, before or after salvation. Man receives God's gift of salvation by saving belief (complete trust and reliance) in Jesus and by repentance (changing one's mind about sin). The faith of true believers is sustained by God's faithfulness and demonstrated by their spiritual growth and obedience out of love for God.
  7. Christ is the Head of the universal Church, which is made up of all true believers in Him. Local churches are local assemblies of believers, shepherded by a plurality of elders who equip those believers to minister through teaching of the Word, discipleship, and prayer. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God by exalting Him, edifying the saints, and evangelizing the lost, both locally and throughout the world. The ordinances of the Church are Baptism and the Lord's Supper. Baptism is a command for believers to obey, illustrating their unity and identity with Jesus Christ. The Lord's Supper is an act of remembrance for what Jesus accomplished in His death and resurrection, as well as an act of anticipation for His future return.
  8. The regular exercise of miraculous sign gifts through God's appointed messengers ceased as God's enduring revelation was completed. These special gifts, in the absence of the Bible's objective revelation, authenticated the message of the prophets, apostles, those in the apostolic circle and Jesus, Himself.
  9. "Church Discipline" is the practice of lovingly confronting recognized, persistent sin in the body of Christ, the local church. The goal of "church discipline" is the glory of God, the purity of God's church, as well as the restoration of the one who is sinning.
  10. Our Lord Jesus Christ will personally return to the earth in power and glory. Believers will be judged to determine their reward for eternity in fellowship with God in heaven. Unbelievers will be judged and cast into Hell for an eternity of intense suffering for their sin.
