What is a Visionary?
A visionary is a person that thinks or plans for the future. A JPLA visionary is someone who helps takes actionable steps to make sure the vision of James Project of Latin America comes to fruition. To really meet the needs of the women and children we serve, we need visionaries working on our behalf in the communities and churches in Guatemala, the United States, Canada, and around the world.
What does a Visionary do?
As a Visionary, you will make connections with individuals, businesses, and churches on behalf of JPLA, organize and host fundraisers, share the needs of the women and children in Guatemala, and promote the mandate of James 1:27. You will be the voice and advocate for the orphans and widows we serve.
How will JPLA support me?
The JPLA staff (primarily the Directors) will be in communication with you regarding the needs of the project and the messages to convey. You will have access to statistics, stories, our promotional materials, and other items that will support you in your efforts. We will be here to support you in all your efforts, in any way we can.
Why do we need Visionaries?
The responsibility for fundraising and public relations for JPLA lies primarily at the feet of the Directors. While this is a great honor, it also comes with several challenges. First, our missionaries and staff reside in Guatemala. This limits our ability to make face-to-face connections with potential supporters and prayer partners. Second, our staff is small and our resources limited. While we can not visit every country, state, or city, we currently have supporters (like you) from a variety of geographical areas. You can carry the message and ministry of JPLA to your city much easier than we can. And finally, our circle of influence is limited. As a visionary, you can open doors and make connections that we never could.
