Why Rental Fees?
It is sometimes asked, “If this ministry is made possible by funds from the Cooperative Program – why is there a fee for using the tent(s)?”
This ministry is made possible (in part) by gifts through the Cooperative Program. Although the tents were purchased with Cooperative Fund Dollars, the maintenance and repair of tents and trailers, as well as covering the Volunteer Tent Minister travel expenses, are not entirely covered under Cooperative Program funds. We do however, strive to make the cost of using the tents as cost-efficient as possible to everyone.
