Support Us


Prayer support as we undertake this commission from God is paramount.  We know that without the faithful prayers of faithful people backing us, there is much that can go wrong.  If you are willing, we desire to have people praying into these areas:​


For favour as we network
For God to create a way
For overall success

For God to provide what we need on
a monthly basis

For ongoing provision
For spiritual protection for us
For the preparation of the people who will be our guests
(More financial goals are outlined below.)

There is a running joke in our world today that Canadians are amongst some of the most polite people in the world.  It's true that both of us Sunderlands have apologized to lamp posts and chairs after bumping into them, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.  Overall as a nation we tend to say sorry as easily as breathing, and politeness is something in which we take national pride.  And polite people?  Polite people do not ask for money.


But I think passionate people do.  


People who are passionate enough about something and believe in it enough can overcome their innate shyness of asking other people to partner financially with them.  People who have caught a vision for something that they truly believe will make a difference in our world will readily ask others to help turn that vision a reality.  


All of these things describe us well.  We do believe in this vision enough to boldly ask people to partner in it by giving financially.  We do believe that the Lord has given us a vision for something that will have a great impact on His Church and, therefore, in this world.  We believe that what God has called us to will fill a need in this day and age, with the ultimate result being that we lose fewer church leaders to wounds, disillusionment and other ministry-killing phenomena that occur every day.  We are being bold, and asking people to 'dig deep' to help us make this vision - this call from God - a reality.  We can't do it without your help.  No donation is too small or too large.  

And because we are Canadians, we can promise you will always receive a most polite and utterly sincere thank-you.

Specific Financial Needs

While we intend to run Scottish Promise retreats as a business rather than a charity (thereby eliminating a huge amount of work that would bring us little return), there are two areas which we believe could benefit from outside donations.

The first of these is subsidizing retreats. Retreats will have to have a cost attached to them, but we desire to have them be accessible to whoever needs them.  Your donations can go towards assisting one or more of our guests to attend a retreat when they would otherwise be unable to afford one.

The second area is simply that of availability.  The main reason we must charge for retreats at all is so that one of us may be at home to run the retreats.  If both of us need to be employed elsewhere full-time, then retreats can't happen.  Your donations can ensure that one of us is freed up to continue providing this service to those in need of it.

Additionally, we have a project going on at the moment to prepare the house for our guests, and that is to put in a new bathroom for the exclusive use of guests while they are with us.  If you would like to donate to this project, we would welcome the help, and it will get us up and running more quickly.

We know this is an ambitious project and ministry.  Every dollar ($) or pound (£) donated and every monthly financial support commitment is appreciated and makes a difference.  Thank-you for giving.
