Resources available online for Pentecost Offering

Your church was new once! Do you remember when your church held its first service? Disciples congregations are invited to reflect and celebrate their church’s beginning when this year’s Pentecost Offering is collected on Sundays, June 1 and June 8.

For your convenience, a variety of Pentecost Offering resources are available at www.disciplesmissionfund.org. The resources include a professional video highlighting Disciples new church pastors; a Spanish sermon by Rev. William Almodovar, pastor of Iglesia Cristiana Casa del Alfarero; an English sermon by Rev. Tony Woodard, pastor of Livin Purpose Christian Church; bulletin inserts in English and Spanish; talking points; press release; banner ad; digital media assets and more.

The Pentecost Offering supports the New Church movement and makes it possible for the Church to recruit, assess, train and coach new church planters. One half of the Pentecost Offering collected stays in the respective Region and the other half goes to Hope Partnership for Missional Transformation to support its new church ministry. Since the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) launched the 2020 vision to start 1,000 new churches by the year 2020, Disciples have started 830 new faith communities throughout the United States and Canada.  Disciples new churches worship in at least 19 different languages and have reached more than 50,000 individuals who may not have had a relationship with God.
