ADOPT GTD FOR 1 YEAR!  CARRY THE TORCH... PASS THE BATON!
Approximately 20% of our annual income comes from the donations of generous people like you. Through the years people have adopted GTD in 1 year time frames. Like a relay race they carry GTD like a baton and strive to put the ministry in a position to beat the previous year's record setting performance... and almost every year they do just that! Their 1 year "race" (financially supporting GTD for 1 year) is what we call being a Ministry Partner. The 2 main ways Ministry Partners donate to GTD is through either a one-time donation of $100 or more or through a monthly faith commitment referred to as a 12 Month Tour-of-Duty.
WHAT IS A MINISTRY PARTNER?
Our Ministry Partners are wonderful people who see the impact God is making through GTD in the lives of youths and adults and have decided to financially adopt the ministry for at least one year. A GTD Ministry Partner financially supports the work of the ministry with an annual cumulative donation of $100 or more. Ministry Partners are a vital part of the GTD family and literally help provide the resources necessary to reach people with the life changing message of Jesus Christ. The MP Logo at the top of this link represents our Ministry Partner's essential role in GTD as supporting pillars. The columns that make up the "M" & the "P" represent how our Ministry Partners' annual contributions to GTD are a pillar, supporting the work of this ministry.
WHAT IS A 12 MONTH TOUR-OF-DUTY? ... AND WHY IS IT ONLY 12 MONTHS?
12 Month Tour-of-Duty is when a Ministry Partner prayerfully and faithfully pledges to financially support GTD monthly for a period of 12 months. These pledges enable an effective ministry to impact the lives of youths, young adults and people of all ages for the glory of God.

We ask our Ministry Partners to limit their financial pledges to GTD to one year commitments. At the end of your 12 Month Tour-of-Duty you can reenlist for another 12 Month Tour or simply discontinue your monthly pledge. We do this for two reasons:

First, a lot happens in twelve months. No matter how good our intentions are to be a faithful supporter we do not know what tomorrow may bring. Unexpected expenses, loss of income, and life transitions can happen suddenly and without warning leaving you unable to meet all of your obligations. We want your partnership to be a joyful experience, not a draining one.

Second, an open-ended commitment can become a frustrating endeavor that steals your freedom. We were created to have a goal, a finishing line, a definable objective. Twelve months is a great attainable goal and it gives you the opportunity to allow God to redirect your finances towards other noble ministries that you may want to support in the future.
ARE THERE ANY BENEFITS FOR BEING A MINISTRY PARTNER?
YES! There are internaleternal external benefits for being a GTD Ministry Partner. Internally you receive the joy and satisfaction that comes from helping provide something that God uses to change lives. Eternally, God promises to reward those who participate in planting, watering & harvesting within the gospel of Jesus Christ. In God's economy the person who helps fund the workers are just as crucial as the people doing the work. And externally our Ministry Partners receive the following goodies:
--> Donations are tax deductible
--> 1 Free GTD T-Shirt (per year)
--> 10% off most GTD events
--> 10% off most GTD products
--> 2 Free tickets to attend our Annual Banquet
--> Recognition in our Annual Banquet literature
--> Recognition of all current & former MP's on our website (see below!)
--> More Benefits in the works!
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
GTD is a nonprofit tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization formed exclusively for charitable, religious, and educational purposes. In addition, GTD complies with the requirements of the Solicitation of Contributions Act Chapter 496 of the Florida Statutes. GTD does not retain the use of professional solicitors, therefore, unless otherwise directed by the contributor to restrict donated funds for a specified use, 100% of your donation goes towards GTD's mission. The allocation of all funds is overseen by GTD's Board of Directors.
HOW MUCH CAN I PLEDGE?  IS MY DONATION TAX DEDUCTIBLE?
As much as you want! And... YES! Your donation is tax deductible!
HOW DO I BECOME A MINISTRY PARTNER?  HOW DO I START?
All you need to do to become a GTD Ministry Partner is make a one-time donation of $100 or more per year or sign up for a 12 Month Tour-of-Duty for $10 or more per month. You can either donate through the mail OR donate online through PayPal on this link.

If you want to sign up for a 12 Month Tour-of-Duty it's very simple. There are 3 easy options to choose from:

1) BILL PAY THRU YOUR CHECKING ACCOUNT: The simplest option is for you to add GTD to your monthly Bill Pay through your bank (or online banking). Several Monthly Partners have set up their Bill Pay to automatically issue their monthly pledge check to GTD so that they don't have to think about it each month. - OR -

2) REGISTER ONLINE: It's convenient, safe, and secure. Simply scroll down this link and choose your pledge amount. Then click on the Payment Plan button next to that amount and follow the easy PayPal instructions. Your pledge will be automatically deducted from your debit or credit card each month for 12 months. (We ask that no one go into debt in order to support this ministry.) - OR -

3) MAIL IN A MONTHLY CHECK: Call or email us today and we will mail you a Ministry Partner Packet. Fill out the Pledge Card with your contact information and the amount you have decided to pledge each month. Then send it to our  mailing address.
MONTHLY REMINDERS
To make things even easier, we will email a Monthly Reminder to you at the beginning of each month. Along with your Monthly Reminder you will also receive regular updates about all that God is doing in GTD. It's always nice to know that God is using your funds to literally change lives!
