2021 Needs


We are so grateful for each of you that have prayed or provided financial support for Paradosi during the past year!  Your gifts have helped us to navigate these difficult times while providing the means for us to share the love of Jesus both online and in our local community. Thank you for hearing the call and providing for us!


While we still have a ways to go before we can return to normal operations, we are still moving forward with the gospel work that we are called to do.  Currently we are in the studio creating new dances to share online, at local churches, and other ministry opportunities.  As soon as shelters, retirement communities, schools and rehab facilities open their doors back up to us we will ramp up our local outreach events.  Our ministry partners are eager for us to return and we are so looking forward to the day when we can return to all of these special venues. 


During the upcoming months we need your continued financial and prayer support to see us through this season.  Even with vaccines being approved, we do not anticipate a return to normal operations until sometime in the Fall or Winter.  We are continuing to move forward as a ministry but we need your support now more than ever.  


We ask that you prayerfully consider partnering with us in ministry during this season to ensure that we can continue to meet our obligations and share the name of Jesus in the year ahead through dance!.  


Grace & Peace,
Jeff & Larissa Bischoff

Monthly Support

During this past year we know that so many of you were impacted immensely by this pandemic.   As a ministry we were not exempt from the ongoing negative impact of this situation.  


During the past year we, like many other non-profits and ministries, saw a drastic downturn in monthly giving.  As we  downsized our operations to what we were allowed to do, God continued to provide through your generous one time gifts but at the same time we saw our monthly support fall by 42% of our pre-COVID gifts.  


We rely heavily on our regular monthly partners  to keep the ministry moving forward.  Monthly giving allows us to more accurately budget for the year for our lease, insurance, utilities, local outreach opportunities, and base support for our staff.  


We know that there are so many worthwhile causes to support... so many needs.. but we need your help to pull out of  this pandemic and relaunch into the world sharing the hope of Jesus through the arts.   


We are praying for 50 monthly supporters, at ANY AMOUNT, to come along side us during the next year.  Monthly gifts of all sizes will help keep the vision alive for many years to come!


Please prayerfully consider partnering with us monthly in the year ahead.  Thank you! 


Special Giving

While Paradosi relies upon regular monthly support and other gifts to cover our operating expenses; we also have special giving needs that will help to send us out into the world!   If your heart is pulling you towards giving to a specific need in the ministry, we would love to hear from you!   Without these special giving funds we would not be able to come along side our US and International ministry partners in declaring the name of Jesus to the world!    Thank you for your prayerful consideration in supporting our special giving goals in the year ahead!

2021/2022 Season

SPECIAL GIVING GOAL

Motorhome • Sleeps 6+

We have been praying about acquiring a motorhome for the ministry during the past few seasons and we feel that the 2021/2022 season is the time where we are to start actively pursuing this goal.


Having a motorhome will open up doors for us to share the Gospel across the country in regions that we have never been able to reach for Jesus!  A motorhome will cut down on our travel time, lower food costs, and cut down on lodging fees significantly while on tour.  


After looking at the used market for RV's, we have set a goal of raising a minimum of $35,000 to purchase a lower mileage motorhome. We have set up a special savings account for donations towards this goal and as of May 25, 2021 we have already received $10,200 in pledges towards this fund!!! . We are grateful for all of the gifts and look forward to adding an RV to the ministries tool kit for reaching more for Christ through the arts!


If you have a motorhome that you would like to donate to the ministry, please contact us today.  We can give you a tax-receipt for the fair market value and put your motorhome to use immediately!

Special Giving Goal

International Outreach Tour

Summer of 2022

Throughout the ministries history we have toured internationally sharing the love and hope of Jesus through the arts.  In 2020 we had planned to return to Europe but due to the pandemic our plans were put on hold.  


We are currently praying about returning to Europe during the summer of 2022 and will need your partnership to go!   With the funds that we have already raised from the planned 2020 tour, we will only need to raise an additional $15k for a month of ministry for our team.  The dancers will be raising a portion of the support but we need your help to ensure that the entire team can go. 


To learn more about the evangelism work that we do overseas, please visit our Global Evangelism page.

Missions Fund Donations

501(c)(3) Nonprofit

As a faith-based organization, we depend on God working in the hearts of people like you to provide the support we need in our evangelistic efforts to reach more for Christ through the arts. Our dancers are all full-time volunteers who have a passion for the Lord and making Him known. Together we exist to Worship God, Love People, Share the Gospel, and to Make Disciples of Jesus Everywhere We Go but we cannot do this without your help. 


Currently we have about half of our base financial needs being met through consistent monthly giving but we need more people like you to come along side the work of Paradosi.  By supporting this ministry with regular prayer and financial support you are helping to fulfill the Great Commission by sending us out to proclaim the name of Jesus to the world! Matthew 28:18-20


Please prayerfully consider partnering with us in ministry in the year ahead!!! Together we can reach the world for Christ!

Financial Statements for donors are available on Guidestar.
