Some Plant, Others Water—and God Gives the Increase

Gary Wilkerson

So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. (1 Corinthians 3:7)

We often hear of “sowing into ministry” as donating funds. But that’s a very limited understanding of biblical sowing. (And it’s often used as a manipulative way of raising funds.) At World Challenge, we believe your gifts don’t “sow into” this ministry but into the people we serve alongside you. Without your seed-sowing into their hearts and lives, we couldn’t water the ground beneath them for gospel transformation.
