Missions Mondays: Giving to MISSIONS: Do’s, Don’ts and Hows
In a previous thread regarding transparency in providing church info on pastors salary. One of the posters listed the Church Expense sheet presented to the congregation minus the amount of the pastor’s salary. In reading the expense and income I saw no mention of Missions Income or Expense for supporting missions or mission projects? Is this common for a church this size? I am not sure if the church was COG or AOG?
Questions for discussion and to help me better understand what I must do to better communicate opportunities for mission giving to our congregations.
1. Does your church have a missions budget?
2. How does your church raise that missions budget?
3. For COG congregations, since the TOT cut, does the congregation still give to missions and support missionaries?
