FAQ

Q. are donations to mission possible tax deductible: 

A.  Yes, Mission Possible is a 501c3 organization.  Your donation is tax deductible according to the rules and regulations allowed by the IRS.  A year-end statement will be provided.  Letters will be provided for in-kind donations upon request.

 

Q. is mission possible a church?

A.  No, Mission Possible is known as a parachurch ministry.  We work alongside of and are supported by many of the local churches in our community, but we are not a church.  Our goal is to care for our patrons in a Christ-centered fashion and then refer them to a local body of believers for further community and fellowship beyond the care they receive at our facility.

 

Q. Where do you get your support?

A.  We are privately funded.  Stated in other terms, we do not accept any public tax dollars.  We desire to preserve our ability to pray and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ without hindrance.  By the grace of God, we will not jeopardize our ability to do so by accepting the restrictions that inevitably come with governmental support.

 

Q. how can i make a difference?

A. The best way to make Mission Possible is prayer.  Pray for our leadership, pray for our volunteers, and pray for our patrons.  There is a battle in the spiritual realm that we will never know or understand.  Please stand in the gap for our ministry.  Of course, financial donations are always a blessing and we count on people to spread the word for mission-minded practitioners that might be interested in volunteering their time and talent.  Use your network!

 

Q. are there practical ways our youth group can help?

A.  We are always in need of the following items from the dollar store: ibuprofen, tylenol, naprosyn, antibiotic ointment, hydrocortisone cream, cough drops, alcohol-free cough syrup, ephedrine-free allergy medicine, antacids, omeprozole, baby aspirin, and epsom salts.  These are great ways to get your youth groups involved in supporting Mission Possible.

 

Q. is there anything our small group can do?

A.  There are two viable small group serving opportunities at Mission Possible.  One is to serve one Saturday morning from 9am-noon at our community garden at 171 S. Lasalle Street.    The second opportunity is to serve our men in recovery by sponsoring a ping-pong tournament on a Saturday night.  Please contact us for details on either serving opportunity.

 

Q. how can our church support mission possible?

A.  Though financial support is always a blessing, the most important way to help is to mobilize your congregation to utilize their God-given gifts at Mission Possible.  Volunteers are always our most limited resource.
