"Let the elders who perform the duties of their office well be considered doubly
worthy of honor [and of adequate financial support], especially those who labor faithfully in preaching and teaching.
For the Scripture says, 'You shall not muzzle an ox when it is treading out the grain,' and again, 'The
laborer is worthy of his hire.'"
- 1Timothy 5:17-18 AMP
(Deuteronomy 24:15; 25:4; Leviticus 19:13; Luke 10:7)
Ascension Ministries receives financial donations and other support according to the biblical principle that God's
people are to provide for the physical needs of ordained elders who teach and minister the Gospel as their primary vocation.
The foundation of this principle comes from God's Torah which says, "Be careful that you do not forsake the Levite
as long as you live in your land" (Deut. 12:19 NAS).
The Wycliffe Bible Commentary explains this principle as "The one who is taught in the word shares his material goods
with the one who teaches him. In this way he participates in the work of the Lord. This is the divine plan." The concept
is about bearing one another's burdens in a way that allows the supporter to participate in the work of the ministry.
This fulfills the Law of God and produces eternal rewards for both (2 Cor. 11:9; 2 Thess. 3:8).
