Our Funding Initiative Surpasses $1,000,000 in Gifts and Pledges
At our synod assembly we shared that we have surpassed $1 million, including our Lilly Endowment grant, for our Synod’s Funding Initiative. Our overall goal is $2.5 million. We are off to a great start!
Our next Enews will lift up some of the transformative investments your generosity is making possible.
Ministerial Excellence Fund – Approaching Completion of Lilly Endowment Match
With pledges and cash gifts, we are approaching the completion of our first goal for our Ministerial Excellence Fund of raising $250,000 to fully utilize the Lilly Endowment matching grant. The money raised and the matching funds from the Lilly Endowment will make it possible for us to give away $500,000 in transformational investments by January 2019.
Completing our matching challenge is just the beginning. We will continue to gather resources to set our pastoral leaders free to serve as public stewards of the Gospel. Your ongoing gifts will build our Ministerial Excellence Fund.
We also continue to raise resources for our deeper and larger goals of our Embrace God’s Mission + Equip God’s People Funding Initiative.
Thanks for your generosity and support.
