Can churches have Boosters?

Jesus had Boosters.  Mary and Martha were two of his favorites.  “Now as they were traveling along, He entered a village; and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home.  She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word.” Luke 10:38-29 NASB

The apostle Paul had Boosters.  Rufus and his mother who was like a mother to Paul were just two of Paul’s many Boosters. “Greet Rufus, a choice man in the Lord, also his mother and mine.” Romans 16:13 NIV

Surely then a local church can have Boosters who are enthusiastic supporters in the community that can help get the word out about the ministries of the church and contribute in many ways to the life of the church.

Boosterville is a program that allows non profit groups like local churches to encourage their “Boosters” to make purchases from participating Boosterville businesses, such as restaurants, hair salons, pet groomers, bookstores, coffee shops and more. In return, these businesses share back a small portion of those purchases directly to the nonprofit group designated by the buyer.

Recently, a check was presented at the Indiana Annual Conference for the money Bethel UMC Boosters in Indianapolis raised during their first month of using Boosterville.  They’ve used Boosterville to support fellowship outside of the church by sending members to gather at a local pizza place to raise money as a group.

Does your church have Boosters who are ready to participate?

      Sorry for the delay in answering your question. Boosterville.com is updating to add a feature where people can search for businesses. For now, you would have to download the Boosterville Booster app, create an account and search for offers. You can start by texting UMC to 317-333-6764.

      If you are interested in working with Boosterville in your church community, you can reach out to Jill at jill@boosterville.com. She will send youa starter kit that includes a way for you to refer businesses to them that they will reach out to and ask to join the Boosterville network.

      I hope this answers your question. If not let us know. Thanks! Blessings.
