Expanding to bring hope and release destiny through Christian news
Today Gateway News is taking an important faith step in our Kingdom news journey.
We are launching an online crowd funding campaign to support our vision of reaching millions of people in South Africa and other African nations with news that brings Godly hope and inspires them to live fully in the amazing purpose that God has for them.
We deeply believe that our Kingdom news vision is from God and we are greatly encouraged that respected Christian leaders in South Africa share our view — as can be seein in a 3-minute video that can be viewed on our crowd funding campaign page.
We also trust that our readers and supporters in South Africa, Africa and the world will catch the vision and help us to accomplish some key steps which we believe we must take as soon as possible.
So what are our funding targets? And why are they necessary?
Our target is $60 000. And we need it to afford some fulltime staff over the next 12 months.
God has been faithful over the almost four years since Gateway News was launched. With little income and with the help of awesome volunteer writers we are now reaching more than 20 000 readers a month. But over the last year it has become clear to me that we cannot rise above our current level as long as we stick to our present model — one (overworked) fulltime editor plus volunteers.
But with a fulltime editor, two fulltime reporters, and admin and marketing staff, we can multiply our influence by providing news bulletins to radio stations and other media channels. We will also have more capacity to recruit and train volunteer reporters all over South Africa and in other African countries.
Please visit our crowd funding campaign page at www.youcaring.com/gatewaynews for more information on how it works and is administered. Please pray. Please contribute. Please share with your contacts and ask them to share with theirs (there are some great tools and widgets on the campaign page to help you share our appeal). With many small contributions we can make the $60 000 target!
The Gateway News crowd funding campaign is a strategic short-term campaign to help lift Gateway News to a level where we can bring much-needed transforming hope to many more people through Kingdom news. We do also have a long-term funding initiative — the Super Subscribers campaign which some of our readers already support and which we trust will grow over time as more and more people catch the fire!
