Ways to Give
Thank you for being a part of Christian Training Center International’s mission and vision. You’re making a difference!
Our vision is to see generations of leaders victoriously modeling Christ in their families and communities.
Our mission is training believers to live a victorious life through biblical Truth, experiential discipleship, and family relationships. You can make your donation “donate” below.
Monthly giving is an important way to support our mission. The most effective way to learn a foreign language is through immersion. In complete immersion, students spend all their time hearing and speaking a new language in a sequential and cumulative format. The goal is to become not only a proficient speaker, but to acquire an appreciation and understanding of a new culture. This approach describes the training process at the Christian Training Center. Your monthly gift has that impact. Make your gift here.

Retirement Plan Assets
It is important to review retirement accounts, such as IRAs, 401(k)s, 304(b)s, or other retirement plans periodically. Due to high tax rates, many supporters have found that it makes financial sense to allocate the residual amount of their retirement savings to the ministry . The ministry does not pay tax on these gifts, and can put every dollar of your gift to work in the ministry of the training center.
How It Works
You name the Christian Training Center International as the sole or partial beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other qualified plan using the beneficiary designation form provided by your financial institution.
You continue to make withdrawals from your account during your lifetime. Any residual left in your account after passing will flow to the ministry tax-free according to your allocation on your beneficiary designation form.
Donors age 70 ½ and older may direct lifetime distributions from their IRAs to the Christian Training Center International. This distribution will count toward your required minimum distribution, and will not be included in your taxable income. You can make contributions totaling up to $100,000 to the ministry and other charities annually.
You can escape both income AND estate tax levied on the residual left in your retirement account by leaving a gift to the ministry because we are a non-profit organization and do not pay taxes on the transfer. These taxes can eat up the principal of your account when transferred to your heirs.
You can continue to take withdrawals during your lifetime.
You can designate all or a percentage of your account, and can change your beneficiaries at any time. There is no charge to update your beneficiary form.
Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds
You have worked hard all of your life to grow your investments. There are many ways to make your investments work for you. Maximize your monetary gain by funding a charitable gift with donated appreciated stock, mutual funds, or bonds. This is a tax savvy way to help benefit the world in future years to come.
How It Works
You transfer securities to the ministry .
The ministry sells your securities and uses the proceeds for important programs such as research, quality care, community outreach, educating the world, and our reach expands every day.
You receive an immediate tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them.
You pay no capital gains tax on the securities you donate.
You can direct your gift to a specific fund or purpose.
You can give a gift of your vacation home, commercial property, or undeveloped land to the ministry . These properties can be donated towards our cause as an outright gift or can be used to fund a gift that pays you a lifetime of income.
How It Works
You will need to obtain a philanthropy title report and an independent review.
Our advisors will inspect the property and complete an environmental checklist.
The IRS requires an independent appraisal to establish the fair market value of the property. We can assist you in following the IRS procedures.
You may apply the deduction for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income, and carry it forward for up to five additional years.
You are freed from paying real estate taxes, maintenance costs, insurance, and capital gains taxes on the property’s appreciation.
You also remove the asset from your taxable estate.
To review your gift possibility and evaluate the condition and marketability of the property contact a Charitable Estate Planning Representative.
You can use a life insurance policy that is no longer needed to show your support of our ministry. If you want to keep your current policy but make a future gift, you can leverage your policy by simply naming the ministry as a beneficiary of your policy.
How It Works
You transfer ownership of a paid-up life insurance policy to the ministry .
The ministry elects to cash in the policy now or to keep the policy and receive the life benefits later.
You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the cash value of the policy.
In some cases, you can use the cash value in your policy to fund a gift that pays you income.
You have the satisfaction of making a significant gift now to the ministry without adversely affecting your cash flow.
