#80: Give Tony a Birthday Present!

January 27, 2015

Drum roll please: It’s Tony Campolo’s….80th birthday! (Or almost; it’s coming up on February 25.)

We’ve got a plan to make it special for him, and we need your help giving him two things: a birthday present and a birthday card.

  • Birthday Present: The “80 for 80” campaign. We’ve created a page through which we are seeking to raise $80,000 in the next month to support one of Tony’s most passionate interests: scholarships for the rising generation of pastors and church leaders, so they can afford ministry training. You can help by giving, or by spreading the word! Give a birthday present
  • Birthday Card: We also want to make that page the best birthday card ever. Leave a birthday message for Tony in the comments below! A story about how he touched your life, or just some words of cheer.  You can help spread the word by including the hashtag #80for80.

In Tony’s 80 years, there is a lot to celebrate. The Lord has enabled Tony’s life-long ministry career to accomplish so much: 35 books, speaking in front of hundreds of thousands, the launch of EAPE (Evangelical Association for the Promotion of Education) and its subsequent launch or support of scores of ministries, his fruitful teaching career at Eastern University, and of course, the start of his latest big thing – The Campolo Center for Ministry.


P.S. If you have been impacted in any way by Tony’s wonderfully productive ministry career and / or are interested in helping future church leaders and pastors receive needed scholarships, now is a great time to give.

And, as a result of the $40,000 Matching Grant, your gift will be doubled – enabling even more church leaders to be trained. Please be generous – God bless you and God bless Tony Campolo!
