SOURCES OF FUNDING
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” ~ Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)
DISTRICT AND CAMP LEADERSHIP Those who serve on the Virlina District Board, and the New Church Development Committee and Outdoor Ministries Committee demonstrate effective leadership in the enormous amount of time and talent given to these ministries. They recently have demonstrated their support, commitment and leadership by establishing realistic and achievable gifts for “Seed, Scattered and Sown: Reaching Beyond this Generation.”
LEAD GIFT DONORS Many members of our congregations have been blessed with strong financial resources. Generous leadership from the Lead Gift donors will encourage and inspire other donors to respond generously. We believe that over half of all campaign funds will come from Lead Gift donors.
CONGREGATIONS Congregational participation and support is vital to the success of the campaign. God blesses our faithfulness and participation as a faith community.
OTHER SUPPORTERS OF CAMP & DISTRICT Our Camp Bethel and Virlina District ministries have positively impacted many generous persons and organizations beyond our denomination. We invite all supportive individuals, families and groups to "Reach Beyond this Generation" with your gifts and commitments.
