2018 Pentecost Offering

2018 Pentecost Offering

Planting churches can help change the world

“Planting a church can make a huge and lasting impression in the community it serves,” says Rev. Terrell McTyer, minister of New Church Strategies and church planter. “By empowering the oppressed, praying for the disenfranchised, caring for the poor, and promoting hope in a fragmented world, the church can literally help change the world.”

On May 20 and May 27, 50% of gifts to the Pentecost Offering received in many congregations will be designated to your Disciples Region to start and sustain new churches. The other 50% will be used by Hope Partnership for Missional Transformation to support the recruitment, assessment, training and coaching of new church leaders at events like Leadership Academy.

Disciples are on track to have 1,000 new churches started by 2020, fulfilling the 2020 Vision set in 2001.

Special days in the life of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) often allow Disciples to focus their worship, celebrations, and fellowship around moments that are central to the Christian faith. Disciples Mission Fund Special Day Offerings provide an opportunity to highlight specific ministries as part of faith celebrations. There are four Disciples Mission Fund Special Day Offerings received each year during Easter, Pentecost, Thanksgiving, and Christmas seasons. Congregations can receive these offerings during worship or budget for a special gift. The Pentecost Offering supports Disciples new church development. Planning, nurturing and sustaining new congregation is part of the Disciples’ vision. This offering supports the specialized ministry of new church development through both regional and general programs.

Disciples Mission Fund brings the whole Church together, connecting us to the life-giving and life-saving work we have been called to do. It also simplifies giving for congregations and individuals, providing a way to support the entire Church at once.
