Vernon Johns says, “Jesus spoke 20 times more about money than he did about prayer, salvation, fasting, or the Kingdom of God. Bishop Derek Triplet says’ “ministry that is extensive is a ministry that is expensive. God has revealed to us His vision and mission for our various ministries, and it will definitely take significant provisions to make these visions a reality. It will take plenty of provisions to live out the mission of God during this season of so much lack nationally and globally. It is our responsibility as Christian leaders to raise the resources for the Kingdom of God. The Word of God provides the principles of God necessary for us to be able to raise the resources. I Corinthians 16:1-2
