Rachel is working hard to combat human trafficking in Indonesia. The ministry is growing, yet like any other, it faces many challenges. Over the summer, she was able to connect with four different Kingdom Consultants to help overcome the specific challenges she was encountering.
It started when she connected with a KC to discuss marketing, social media strategy and communications for the nonprofit. She was able to connect with Crystal to understand how to best engage both locally as well as stateside for fundraising.
Next, two stories separated by decades were connected through Switchboard. Rachel wanted to connect with a missionary who had served in the same area of the world and learn from their experience and perspective. She was able to connect with Becky, who grew up cross-culturally and then lived in Indonesia for 12 years. Becky’s experience allowed her to provide Rachel with mentoring and guidance through a one-hour connection.
Rachel followed up her initial marketing conversation by connecting with Nathan because she was looking for help with social media. They brainstormed some options for the ministry and set a direction she could take action on.
Later that same month, Rachel requested a connection for guidance on some graphic design needs she had. She needed a logo design that the ministry would use locally but also design work for a partnership they would engage in with another nearby coalition. Rachel knew they would need more graphic design help in the future and wanted ideas for how to meet that need.
When Rachel created her GCO (Great Commission Organization) account on Switchboard, she didn’t know it would impact both her ministry and personal life as she engaged in the mission. With her support system widening, Rachel can now focus on fighting human trafficking. All the while, the Great Commission is moving forward.
