This page is provided in response to those who may have an interest in financially supporting our Daily Encouragement Net ministry. We hope you enjoy all the resources that are available through our internet-based ministry, particularly our daily messages. There's a lot of information and help available to you. But it takes a substantial amount of time and resources to produce this material and keep it available. Donations are tax deductible and will be receipted directly by our chaplaincy endorsing ministry. See below for our principles in raising support.
Brooksyne and I want to express thanks to all who support this aspect of our ministry for Christ.
See below the donate request on the website or daily emails to see current YTD offerings.
Online: Donate online directly through my chaplaincy endorsing agency using a credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa are accepted.) A tax receipt will be mailed for your records, and the gift will be listed on your monthly credit card statement. Online transactions are secure and private. Note: The contribution form will state "Chaplain Stephen C. Weber" and the receipt will also be designated this way since I am endorsed as a chaplain with specialized ministry over the internet. Please either provide your email address on the form or email me if you use this method so I can thank you and verify that the contribution was posted properly to my chaplaincy account. I will not use your email address other than thanking you for your gift.

We consider ourselves "multi-vocational" having several part-time ministry roles and sources of income. The preparation of the Daily Encouragement message takes a significant part of each weekday morning and early afternoon. Although we also receive income from our part-time chaplaincy ministry, we are trusting the Lord that this online writing ministry will continue to grow and impact many for Christ. We pray that we will receive support funding commensurate with the time and expenses we place into it.
Preparation of all the materials involved in the daily message usually takes us around 8-10 hours per day between us. In addition to this we seek to follow-up needs expressed to us from readers and podcast listeners. Many write with hurts requesting prayer and counsel. Due to the size and scope of the ministry we also require several computers, high-speed internet access, and specialized software and listserve functions. See this page for more info.
You work hard for your money and we deeply respect that. That's why we treat all gifts to this ministry with the respect and gratitude they deserve, by using the funds carefully and to the glory of God. Since we base this ministry out of our home we have very little "overhead" and believe our ministry is a very cost effective means of reaching many thousands of people with Biblical truth on a daily basis.
We provide all of the content of the website, email lists, podcast and other resources at absolutely no charge. We are strictly a donation-based ministry and are dependent on the Lord to provide for us through the financial help of caring, generous people. This is possible because of the gifts we receive from those who are being helped through our ministry and who also realize the mission dimension of reaching many all over the world. For more information on our ministry's impact see this page.
We are recognized by our chaplaincy endorsing agent as "internet chaplains." We would appreciate your consideration of financial support whether it be a one time or regular giving. So if you have been blessed by our ministry and would like to provide a financial offering we would sure appreciate it!

Here's a current ministry update.
We use these principles in regard to raising support:
Many churches and ministries have great websites and seek to minister and many pastors and dedicated lay people now blog. We are thankful for all who seek to present the Truth over the internet. What makes this ministry distinct?
"Living today anchored in Godís solid foundation"
