We CAN save church jobs!
As I’m sure most people are now aware, the church has had to make adjustments to it’s budget, with the consequences of that including the loss of jobs for a significant number of church employees.
However, it IS possible to save church jobs. The World Church financial officers have outlined the criteria in the attachment. It is important to note that in addition to immediate donations, a sustained increase (beyond what is already expected) in tithing is required.
I implore everyone to share this message with your network, and arrange for it to be emailed to the members of your mission center and congregations.
This is going to take effort, and its going to take sacrifice, but I’m sick at heart knowing that church jobs are on the verge of being eliminated. Now is not the time to find fault, but to act, to save the jobs of our friends and family, of people we love, and who we know have been called into the roles that they serve so tirelessly in. Let the mission of Jesus Christ not be constrained by lack of funding.
