Jan 04, 2023

The EPA Conference Global Ministries Team announces Jan. 20 as the application deadline for churches and other entities to request mission funding from EPA churches through the Advance Specials program. 

Advance Specials are local projects in EPA approved annually by the Annual Conference, giving them exclusive rights to solicit funding from churches conferencewide.  

Churches that want to give to approved Advance Special projects should first fulfill their primary connectional stewardship commitments to the conference and general church by remitting apportioned funds and direct-bill payments. Additional giving to local ministries is called “second-mile giving.”

Applications for Advance Special status for 2023-2024 must be submitted by Jan. 20, so that a 2023 Annual Conference report and resolution can be prepared and submitted by Feb. 1. Admittedly, these submission dates are earlier than in past years. 

Read information and complete the application. For more information contact Deaconess Barbara Drake, EPA Conference Secretary of Global Ministries at bedrake15@aol.com.
