  3. 3. Meet The Need Background • The Founder was a management consultant to Fortune 500 companies designing strategic, process and technology solutions • In 2000, while struggling to find opportunities to “give back”, God showed him how that same business technology could connect churches and ministries to do more to help those in need …because the Christian community can offer more than just help, but also the hope found in Jesus Christ Founding Focus Groups, Design Initial Pilot Beta Test Launch & Design & Development2000 2002 2004 2006 2008 2010 3

  16. 16. Not a New Program, Just Doing More with Less Programs Require Meet The Need 1. Effort 1. No extra work 2. New responsibilities 2. No shift in responsibilities 3. Commitment 3. No commitment to change So, what is Meet The Need – simply taking local missions from: • Pen, paper & PostIt Notes • Leverage 21st century technology • Phone calls, emails & bulletins • Vastly improve communication of needs • Labor-intensive (expensive) • Take work off of church staff • Disconnected, limited outreach • Body of Christ connected & mobilized • Slow and unproductive in terms of • Members quickly search and find missed opportunities to serve opportunities to help, on your web site 16
  17. 17. You are the “Face” to the Community• Meet The Need is behind the scenes – the community, congregation and volunteers need to know about the Church’s heart for ministry, not ours!• All Meet The Need can do is facilitate an initial interaction – it’s churches who bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ over time Building a new local ministry has a positive impact, BUT enabling Christians and Christian organizations across the globe to minister more effectively can have an exponential impact 17
  18. 18. The Value of Collaborative OutreachUniting Christian Organizations to Serve Those Less Fortunate• Common, state-of-the-art platform enables all churches and ministries to work together to reach that community for Christ• Needs are instantly published out to all churches, ministries and individuals within the Meet The Need networkPreventing People from Taking Advantage of Anyone’s Generosity• Comprehensive Shared Case Management System• Cross-checks entire local database to see if that family has received help (or is scheduled to) from other churches and/or agencies• Each family is tagged to a single organization• No needs may be posted for money 18
  19. 19. Value for Churches Church “Needs” Benefits of MTNFulfill the Great Commission Shares the Gospel as Jesus did, through ServiceDo More to Impact the Local Takes the OutreachCommunity and the World Workload off of Church StaffIncrease Member Service Matches Members withOpportunities External and Internal NeedsGrow Your Church Connects Members with Families in the CommunityFoster Church Unity Shared, Common Platform across Organizations 19
  20. 20. Value for MinistriesGiving Ministries Access to the Church Community• It’s a struggle getting churches on board with your ministry and keeping them informed of your needs, requiring countless calls and e-mails• However, with MTN, all needs you post are published instantly out to churches and individuals within the Meet The Need networkBuilding Awareness of Your Ministry within the Local Community• Most ministries do not have large marketing budgets – Meet The Need becomes a marketing engine for you by publicizing your needs not only to church members, but to anyone else looking to “give back”Uniting Christian Organizations to Serve Those Less Fortunate• Using a common, state-of-the-art platform enables all churches and ministries to truly work together to reach that community for Christ• For example, with Meet The Need you will know what other local organizations have been providing help to a family who walks in your door 20
  21. 21. Success Stories• Tampa Bay - The most united body of Christ anywhere in the world• Expanded from 4 states to 37 after making MTN available nation-wide in January 2012• Strategic partnerships with several of the largest national ministry organizations in the U.S.• Used by 9 of the 40 largest churches in the U.S.• Behind many of largest multi-church outreach events• Enabled the first fully-collaborative toy and food drives• Picked up by secular and Christian news outlets 21
  22. 22. Testimonials• “Finally, someone has figured this out!” — Executive Pastor, The Crossing Church• “Meet The Need releases the bottleneck at the church staff level…empowers individuals to put their faith into action.” — Outreach Director, Van Dyke Church• “The support provided by Meet The Need was invaluable” — Director, Feed the Bay• “a savings in manpower of roughly $176,000” — President, Metropolitan Ministries 22
  23. 23. Meet The Need Expansion Plans To mobilize and equip the Church to lead millions more to Christ by following Jesus’ example of meeting those in need exactly where they are. Florida and U.S. andCentral Florida United States Select Countries Select Cities 2010 2011 2012 2013 23
  24. 24. How it all Works…Next Steps• Churches & ministries register at www.meettheneed.org & get activated• You begin using your “Dashboard” to post the “internal” needs of your organization, your missionaries and your “members”• You help get “external” needs posted to the MTN network by encouraging ministries you work with to register with MTN and by directing local families to contact MTN’s call center• You tell your church or ministry that there are local needs to be met (e.g. ministry volunteer opportunities; items needed by families, etc.)• Your members and Bible Study groups begin searching the new “Outreach” page on your web site for any needs they want to meet• They complete the delivery of goods/services & confirm donations• You view and monitor the impact your organization is having on your community on your private “Dashboard”! 24
  25. 25. What It Costs…• NOTHING, but we ask that you prayerfully consider donating to Meet The Need to help cover our costs of setting you up• We are a ministry organized as a 501(c)3 Public Charity, not a business – our heart is for seeing the body of Christ working together to meet the needs of local ministries, families and missionaries in Jesus’ name• We don’t want any Christian organization to be precluded from using Meet The Need due to lack of funding “Through MTN, our church’s DNA is changing to be one where we are the hands and feet of God as a lifestyle, not a program.” 25
