TOOLBOX List

The Terrific Tools For SFC

These tools are created to be used by the leaders of acting SFC Chapters and Partners.

 

Interweb-ACCESSIBLE Tools:

THE  TRAILMAP “The Nearly-Exhaustive SFC Leader’s Handbook”

This document explains all there is to know about SFC as well as lots of things you didn’t need to know. View it in the public  .pdf format (for “search-ability”). View it HERE.

WEBSITE

Our  MOBILE-FRIENDLY website gives our leaders their own spot on the site for their country’s info. It also plays host to a plethora of other goodies available for those internet-surfing vagabonds who stumble upon our site asking questions like,  “Are there REALLY snowboarders and skiers who love Jesus in this crazy messed up world we live in?” www.sfcusa.org

WEEKLY WINTER WORD

The WWW is a simple, SFC Values-based WEEKLY DEVOTION that will drop on the front page of our mobile-friendly website every Wednesday promptly at 5:40pm MT. www.sfc.international/blog

VIDEO LIBRARY

Like any library, this resource will grow with time as more specific video content becomes available. It currently consists of the (6) SFC shred videos and (3) Promo videos: “Welcome to SFC,” “Dear Church” and “SFC VALUES at Work.” All of these are available on our VIMEO page.

PODCASTS

From our years of conferences we have a lot of audio recorded from the speakers. Check them out HERE or in the iTunes podcast library search “SFC International”.

MEASURING OUR MISSION

At the SFC headquarters, the Board and Staff have been asking ourselves (for several years now) how to accurately and appropriately measure the success of our mission. We recognize that “success” in ministry can be a slippery thing to measure, because it’s about lives changed and not necessarily just about numbers. But at the same time, certain numbers do tell a bit of a story and can be helpful for leaders wanting to improve from year to year. Check out the questions HERE and view the VIDEO explaining them. Keep them in mind and discuss them with your leadership team throughout the season.

GOSPELS OF JOHN

These mini, shred-pocket-sized Gospels of John with a customized SFC challenge sticker on the cover are not meant for mass distribution “tract-style” outreach, but rather for that relational “it’s-time-to-talk-with-that-friend-you’ve-been-making-on-the-hill-all-winter” style evangelism. Contact the SFC Office WHEN you run out and need more.

T.I.M.E. TRAVEL BOOK

Looking to travel to a new area or visit an existing SFC chapter? Planning on taking some friends with you? Why not turn it into a TIME Travel trip! Check out THIS BOOK to find out how to TIME TRAVEL.  Contact the SFC Office to get some in printed form.

FUNdraising TOOLS

(a.) Official SFC Chapters in the USA are able to do fundraising through the SFC National office and offer tax receipts to the donors. Your accounting and book work will be done through SFC. To find out more talk to the regional director for your area.

(b.)Leaders have the option to purchase merchandise from the SFC Online Store resell them to pay for meals/outreaches/overhead.

BOOK LIBRARY

GRAPHIC DESIGN

SFC now has access to a part-time graphic designer, so if you need a flyer made for an event or are sick and tired of creating logos in PaintShop, hit us up and we’ll get you hooked up with flashy images.

If you would like to do your own graphic design or just want to throw up the logos on your Facebook page then you can download them here: Logo Zip
