Suggest renaming/moving to "Sponsoring church (Churches of Christ)"[edit]

I'd like to suggest renaming this article to clarify that it's discussing an organizational approach as used specifically among the churches of Christ. I suspect this general concept of a congregation sponsoring a work that other congregations may assist with is not that uncommon among Christian groups. A specific article on the concept, as used among churches of Christ, seems completely appropriate, though, given its significance for the institutional/non-institutional division among churches of Christ. But, to avoid confusion, it also seems that we should use a more specific name so that someone researching how Baptist churches operate, for instance, wouldn't end up here.

POV[edit]

Should this article be reviewed in regards to its point of view in order to have a more neutral informative perspective? Llorracsemaj (talk) 15:38, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

My name is Tito John Msembi a Kenyan citizen by birth, christian male aged 24, ID no. 29383038. Who is currently a student at Pwani University doing his Diploma in Education (Primary Option) in 2nd year who aspires to be a good teacher one of these days. I am appealing to anyone, company, organization, family or group who would offer me or kindly sponsor me in my Education because I am currently facing financial instability as my university is forcing me to call off my studies for one academic year of which am not sure still of where to find the money I owe them. Hence, am no longer able to complete my course due to lack of school fees.

Am from a single parent family, that is, my mother who has to take care of me and three other siblings of which it is difficult due to her old age. She has spent much to help me but she can’t do it anymore. I am the only person who will be expected to take care of my mother and my three little siblings and if I won’t finish my study then am I fear things will be worse.

Mom was forced to sell the only piece of land we had so as to educate me but the money was never enough and right now we are living in a rental house. I fear if I call off my studies I will run a great loss because a lot has been spent already.

Am willing and ready to produce any evidence required and to do anything attached to the help given to me by to anyone, company, organization, family or group in the name of sponsorship in my education. Education is the key to success yet it is so expensive. May God help you in advance; anyone wishing to help/support me in any way or direct me where to find a help.
