Armed with this confidence and after much prayer and consideration, we have developed a budget and fundraising goal for 2017 of $27,640. The budget is broken down into the following four categories, which parallel ministry goals and objectives for the year.
- Ministry Development ($8,830) -
Develop a high level of
disaster preparedness and quick response capability by helping presbyteries,
churches and families plan in advance for emergencies, become aware of
potential disasters in their communities, develop a plan to survive after a
disaster, and minister to others in the spirit of God’s grace and mercy.
- Vision Casting ($4,800) -
Make presbyteries and
churches within the region aware of opportunities to have a greater impact by working
together to respond to regional disasters and by coordinating our efforts with MNA Disaster Response to further leverage our efforts.
- Resource Development ($8,320) -
Pull together resources –
funds, volunteers, equipment and facilities – to respond to disasters locally and
regionally as an act of mercy to give compassionate relief from calamity and to
plant the seeds for the Kingdom of God.
- Ministry Cultivation ($5,690) -
preparedness within my region by offering training opportunities to key leaders, churches, and presbyteries.
