Many churches cooperate in good works of various kinds, each bearing a part of the cost. Area-wide Vacation Bible Schools, planting churches abroad, preaching schools, and summer camps for youth often require multiple congregations cooperation and financial support.
This is what churches are doing with PTP. We oversee the work, and other churches help us bear the expense by covering the cost of sending their preachers, elders, and other members. Certainly if it is right to send a young man to a school for two years to begin his education, then it is right to send him a year later to PTP for a week to continue his education. Splitting the cost and cooperating enables the brotherhood to have an event that otherwise would not be possible. The registration fee pays to rent the facility, print the brochure, pay speakers, and allows for children and teens to attend for free.
With that said, we still take precautions not to exclude anyone from benefiting from the workshop. As the brochure explains, “We do not want anyone who needs recharging to miss out because we are charging for it.” We offer financial assistance and help give thousands of dollars away each year to support those with genuine need.
