The personal support raising model of funding mission utilized by Evangelical outreach ministries (EOMs) in the United States can disadvantage women and staff of color (Perry 2011). Many EOMs desire to make changes to the way they raise support, but struggle to help teams pursue more just funding models in their contexts. This research project investigates ways ministers in eleven different ministries describe their journeys toward more just funding models. After examination and reflection through a lens of missiological reflection on justice and mission funding, the project then suggests common themes from these ministries to help three new ministry teams develop organizational change strategies to change the way they raise support. Insights from helping these three teams, combined with earlier missiological reflection and journey descriptions, are then utilized to create the Equitable Support Raising Canvas. This tool seeks to define on one page the adaptive work for EOMs who desire to pursue more just funding models for mission.
