The Bucknell family
The financial support team enables Biblical Foundations for Freedom to continue to produce and distribute training materials and provide quality Christian training instruction around the world.
If you are looking for a good ministry to invest in, consider BFF. We are a cost effective ministry providing quality training and translated materials to the growing borders of God's kingdom. We only receive about 18% through regular giving.
BFF was requested to resubmit our 1023 80 page document again. We have done this long ago but due to the IRS' backlog, we need to wait until the end of 2013 before hearing their assessment. There should not be any problems but just legal papers hassling tens of thousands of small nonprofits. Please contact me to gain a tax deductible receipt. We give through another organization.
We appreciate your patience. Please write and I will tell you how to get a tax-deductible receipt if you need one. Otherwise, just send your gift in. We are still operating in the same way.
God has marvelously provided for BFF for more than ten years now. Sometimes it has been very tight but always have been cared for.
Biblical Foundations for Freedom, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and offers tax-deductible receipts (see above section). Please note what fund below you are giving to. If no designation is mentioned, it will be placed in the general fund.
General Less than 20% of BFF's income is what one would consider regular. This means each month we depend on the Lord's prompting of God's people to invest in BFF's ministry.
Missions (STM) (Short term training trips - BFF needs about $10 -20,000 per year. Right now we welcome donations for Pastor/Evangelist training seminars to South America in the spring and Asia in September-October.
Building No building in mind but open to donations to enable more effective training such as a retreat training center or movie production office. BFF has numerous training seminars on discipleship, overcoming anxiety, other personal struggles as well as pioneering teaching in the area of discipleship training. Marriage and parenting seminars are also available.
Love (Charity funds are largely used for oversea pastors, families and other ministry needs. We are acquainted with many orphans, buidling needs, etc. among the most unreached nations and those recently having the church established.)
We recognize that God might guide you into making a financial investment in this ministry. We welcome your support.
We think it is a wise investment with great return. God has given us a huge library of media-enriched Biblical training resources in our ten years of existence. If we would print just our Biblical resources alone, it require beyond 5,000 pages.
Those from many nations around the world constantly access this website. A pastor from Hong Kong wanted the parenting materials for his ministry over the border. African pastors are eager to train their church leaders using our materials. Truly this blessing continues because of God's clear hand upon this ministry.
While deeply appreciating your contributions, we encourage you first to give your offering to your local church and only afterwards contribute to this ministry as the Lord would lead you. Or perhaps even better, put us on your mission budget!
We have provided a BFF 2010 financial summary report that you can download to see the great things God is doing through the BFF international ministry.
If you would like more information about BFF income or needs, please contact me (see below).
If God would lead you to give to BFF, we welcome your gift. Over the years we find God provides for our needs through so many different means.
What do you see in the above picture? Mp3 players. iPods. Laptops. iPhones.
Do you have a used one? Think about donating it to BFF.
Donations to BFF, items or cash, are able to get an IRS tax deductible receipt from BFF for their present value.
Many pastors overseas need functional hi-tech equipment to aid them in their ministry.
Pay for shipping and send them to:
If you have wonder whether the item is needed, or have any other questions, please send us an email or call.
Consider having your church get involved in this strategic form of worldwide training. BFF specializes on the training process and has a library of its own training materials. Pass the blessing on! Invite Paul to make a presentation or send a powerpoint.
Biblical Foundations for Freedom, Inc. is reapplying for 501(c)(3) non-profit and will soon be able to offer tax-deductible receipts for donations and donated items and property. An email is sent as a receipt for your donation. A tax deductible receipt (see above section) will also be mailed to you at the end of the year if over $200 and residing in the United States. If you donate an item like a used laptop, ipod, iphone, etc. for pastors overseas, please state clearly the name and state of the equipment and its value.
We held three training seminars in Africa this past year aand are already gearing up for another series of Christian leadership training seminars. If you would like to designate your giving only to these kind of trips, please mark on the check or note in the donations made above "STM" (Short Term Missions). 100% of the donation will go to these STM projects. Thanks!
Africa: Paul is planning to visit Cu-ba, Peru and the Philippines. Please pray and support as the Lord leads.
Africa: Paul held three different three-day seminars in Africa in March-April 2011 for Christian leaders.
Our training of pastors, church planters and evangelists overseas requires funds above our regular budget. These trips have been very fruitful in the past.
Our African seminars were powerfully used of the Lord. The attendance doubled and so the costs went up but God provided, supernaturally, of course. Check out a movie summary or catch up from our prayer letters. Praise God the Lord provided the thousands of dollars needed.
Paul is planning a trip to East Asia in September. The discipleship seminars from the last two years have been tremendously helpful.
You can join on these bilingual seminars by watching the teaching here!
Read or sign up to receive our prayer letter which will give you up-to-date reports on our recent activities and needs. My wife and I have eight children ranging from 30 to 8. We attend the Oakland International Fellowship in Pittsburgh where we actively serve the Lord.
If you have any questions, we would be glad to answer them by phone, letter or email. We appreciate any suggestions, advice, prayer, encouragement and support you can give us at Biblical Foundations for Freedom!
God has given freely and so we pass on freely. We encourage you to use, adapt and pass on the materials found on Biblical Foundations for Freedom.
Many great truths have been locked up in dusty books for far too long. Even if one had invested in a large library, they are difficult to integrate into one's own notes. If you would like BFF's materials printed out or in electronic form ready for printing, visit the BFF Resource Center. Even our DVDs can be physically copied and passed on!
