The General Board of Global Ministries has an extensive list of opportunities for churches to support national and global missions and receive Advance funding. However, there are many mission and ministries within the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference that do not qualify for GBGM designation. With additional funding and volunteer resourcing, these ministries could expand their mission and ministry serving people in our communities and regions. Since Annual Conference rules require approval for conference wide appeals, the Missions Team is now ready to receive applications for the 2015 Conference Advance Specials for review and recommendation to the annual conference for approval.
For consideration, please complete the application for status as a Conference Advance Special and submit it by the March 10, 2015 deadline.
Greetings in Christ!
On behalf of the Missions Team, thank you for the ministries you are involved in and we trust that you had a great year of service.
In preparation for our Conference Advance Special resolution, we are contacting you early to give you time to work on your application and make sure that you are able to make the deadline which is March 10, 2015.
Please find enclosed the application form, and again this year you can apply in three ways, via email (preferred), snail mail or fax. All the contact information is found on the form.
Would you please get working on this and make sure that we receive the completed forms by the due date, this will be a great help to us in finalizing the resolutions for 2015.
Thank you for your consideration and help,
Rev. David J. Davis
Conference Secretary for Global Ministries
