What is a GlobalFingerprints Advocate?
GlobalFingerprints Advocates are the link between GlobalFingerprints and the local church. Advocates promote GlobalFingerprints in their church and help to organize their church’s involvement in GlobalFingerprints events such as Orphan Sunday.
What do GF Advocates do?
As mentioned above, when a church decides to promote GlobalFingerprints on a Sunday, they will generally turn to the GF Advocate to help them find the resources they need and to organize the sponsor sign up in the foyer.
Throughout the year GF Advocates find ways to promote GlobalFingerprints that fit with their gifts and personality. Some make presentations in Sunday School classes or to small groups. Others invite people into their home to talk about child sponsorship. And tech savvy folks sometimes promote GlobalFingerprints through social media.
GF Advocates can also organize fundraising events to raise money to help GlobalFingerprints children and to raise awareness of the ministry.
What support is provided for GF Advocates?
Every other month, we hold a video chat for Advocates where you will meet some of the front-line GlobalFingerprints workers, hear stories about how God is at work and learn how to promote GlobalFingerprints in your church.
On the off months, you will receive a brief newsletter with more inside information about GlobalFingerprints and ideas for promoting GlobalFingerprints in your church.
