Up In The Air

Resources

Up in the Air for Kids is a major BGMC fundraising event that can be conducted year-round to raise
awareness and financial support for BGMC. The uniqueness about this extreme event is that
children’s pastors, leaders, and even children go Up in the Air—on a billboard, a scissor lift, or a
rooftop; and for kids going “Up” on a trampoline, or whatever safe and fun method one can
conceive.

The most proven method of raising funds through Up in the Air for Kids has been for a children’s
pastor to go “Up” on a billboard for a seven-day period. The more visible the location, the more
success one will have in getting the attention of the media—and businesses that may contribute. The
successful leaders primarily appeal to the adult congregation and to businesses in the public. Keep in
mind that the more spectacular and attention getting the event—to make church members and the
public aware—the greater the likelihood that more funds will be raised.
