Thank you so much for supporting the ministers and ministries of Ambassdors For Christ. We cannot do the Lord’s work without you! As you may know, there are administrative costs to run a ministry. We do our best to keep these costs to a bare minimum so that we steward our funds well toward hands-on mission work. A part of our administration costs that we have no control over are our credit card processing fees. This is where you can help us in a big way and get more money into ministry. Did you know there are significant processing fees that can run from 4-7% of your donation depending on the card you use? If we process $500,000 in donations over the year in credit cards, that is up to $35,000 in processing fees that could go to ministry! We would love to redirect that money to the ministry you support. Would you please consider making your donation with a check mailed to us or set up donations via your checking account after clicking the donation button below? We understand if there is a reason you choose to donate with a credit card, and we appreciate any donation we get for ministry. Either way, please click the donation button below and enter your checking or credit card info to make a donation. Don’t forget to select your ministry designation. If you have any questions or need assistance in donation, please contact our office at 770-980-2020 or info@afci.us
