Kim Ebert's husband last I heard was in the last stages of cancer and I'd like prayer for her. She was in love with her husband. Sometimes people pass into glory and a new love is formed. God knows the plans he has for us........Jeremiah 29:11 I love you all over there-Jesus! Jesus shows me things sometimes-visual pictures......I found someone for you-Jesus.
Intouch Ministries is a great organization, that has helped many of people all across the world. From my personal opinion ITM uses all of their funds on well-needed tasks. Many people count on ITM for their ministry needs, and for personal use. God has surely blessed this ministry.
Review from Guidestar
I find In Touch Ministries to be an outstanding ministry thanks to the devotion of its pastor Dr. Charles Stanley. I was disappointed to find it filed as a 5013c church however. For instance, David Jeremiah has no such filing for his Turning Point Ministries I liken to outstanding means getting God's Word out to the world as efficiently as possible.
I am displeased with this organization's marketing and mailing practices, and would strongly caution any potential donors to avoid In Touch Ministries' wasteful practices.
My mother was a supporter of In Touch Ministries. Upon her death, they relentlessly barraged us kids with weekly mailings, book offerings, and requests for donations. We replied every time informing them of her death and asking them to stop, but the mailings continued. Not only at their mailing expense, but also at the expense of mailing notices and requests back to them.
This has been going on for 9 months, and we finally received a letter from them acknowledging her death. They said they'll stop the mailings, but to expect a few more and that they "trust those won't be an inconvenience." The weekly reminders with my mother's name on it and the struggle to get these people (or machines) to stop mass-mailing us has been a painful inconvenience.
My impression of In Touch Ministries is a cold, impersonal mailing machine which foolishly spends its resources on futile revenue tactics. They appear to conveniently classify these expenses as "program costs" rather than marketing costs because it falls under a mission of "outreach."
