Missionary Support and Resources

Missionary Support
Each church is challenged to join in a covenant relationship of missionary support.  This will be a source of continuing blessing to a congregation.  Any amount of support is welcome.  $1000 (or $5 per member for churches under 300 members) constitutes a unit of support and entitles a church to a biographical sketch, a photograph, and a visit from the missionary at General Board expense when he or she is on furlough.

To arrange for such support and information, the local church deals directly with their District Mission Coordinator, and the Conference Secretary of Global Ministries.

Your Support is sent to our Conference treasurer and forwarded to the General Board in New York.  Your church is credited, and the full amount is remitted to the missionary you wish to support.
