Who is Reliant and how are they affiliated with The Fellowship?

Reliant is an evangelical Christian mission agency who is a trusted partner with hundreds of missional churches and Gospel-centered non-profits.

Reliant partners with missional churches like The Fellowship to mobilize support-based missionaries for the great commission. Reliant actually employs all Residents and “assigns” them to The Fellowship Church. We partner with Reliant because they specialize in equipping and sending church-based missionaries like our Residents. This partnership allows The Fellowship to focus on ministry and Reliant to serve the Resident in aspects of employment and support team development.

How do we support-raise?

The Fellowship, in partnership with Reliant, provides full support raising training. Every Resident attends this training in-person so that we can provide the best face-to-face preparation possible.

Our training includes developing a theology of support raising, demonstrating a biblical perspective on ministry partnership, practically setting support goals, and training vision casting skills to equip Residents for success in developing a ministry team. Additionally, each Resident is given personal coaching and regular communication during the support raising season.

Following training, our Residents are deputized by Reliant to raise funds for their ministry leading up to the residency start date in August. Each Resident can expect to spend three to five months developing a ministry team and raising support depending on the number of weekly hours he or she is able to invest.

How much do we support raise and how much does it cover?

Residents raise funds for the total cost of their employment (salary, insurance, taxes, and program costs). It is Reliant’s practice to work with predetermined salaries for living in Katy and help each Resident to establish a customized budget and a support goal that takes into consideration their individual circumstances. It is each Resident’s responsibility to raise 100% of his or her determined goal.
