WHAT IS A LEGACY GIFT?
A legacy gift is a planned future gift that designates some part of an individual's estate as a donation to a nonprofit, i.e., ministry. Legacy gifts enable individuals to create a powerful eternal legacy by making a direct impact on the mission's efforts that are important to them. Your gifts will support our mission for generations. While you may not see all that God has in store, you can create a legacy of impacting lives with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
A GIFT THAT GOES BEYOND YOU
Our great God truly works in wondrous ways. He even uses us on this earth after we have gone on to be with Him. Let me give you an example.
For years, I had the privilege to speak with one particular supporter of The John Ankerberg Show several times per year. I would call and this lady would answer her phone as if she had been waiting on my call. We shared great times together as we talked about what God was doing in her life as well as what all was happening here at the ministry.
Then one day I got a phone call from her attorney. She had gone on to be with the Lord. He wanted me to know that she had included our ministry in her will. (We never knew that she had done this.) We were one of fourteen ministries she had designated in her will. With her donation, we built our present studio and additional office space! PRAISE THE LORD!
Since then her gift has impacted 206 countries and territories, millions of people, many language groups, not to mention Dr. Ankerberg and the entire staff. (For years, it was my job to rent facilities in which we could tape our programs. It was extremely difficult to arrange Dr. Ankerberg's schedule, all the various guests' schedules, and find a facility available. Now, we have much greater flexibility to get this work done.)
Let me make this even more personal. If you have benefited from our program since 2009, this lady has impacted your life!
