International Missions – February 20, 2019


Penny Crusade

For 60 years, Penny Crusade has been the primary funding mechanism for our denominational missions work. Yet we’ve found there are many in our North American churches who do not understand Penny Crusade. To solve this problem, we’ve produced a 4-by-8 inch Penny Crusade Information Card. It answers questions like “Where does Penny Crusade money go?” and “Who exactly is supported through Penny Crusade?”

These information cards are available free of charge upon request. If you would like copies for your church or friends, contact us at Let us know how many copies you would like, and we will gladly ship them to you.

From ACGC – February 13, 2019

It was a busy week last week with the Executive Council meetings, but this week we hit the ground running following up on actions taken. Much of our discussion and reports to the council dealt with the progress we have made on the strategic plan and the need for financial support to move forward. We greatly appreciate the support that we receive from United Ministries, Penny Crusade, First Responders and our yearly appeals and we want to be good stewards with every penny. We praise God for the opportunities to be involved with our regions, conferences and local church ministries, but we want to continue to widen and strengthen our aid in building and planting new churches worldwide.
