What's with the Pennies?


In 1956, Chester Randall made an unusual donation of 4,175 pennies to help Advent Christians spread the gospel to the nations. This served as inspiration for a yearly denominational fundraising effort called Penny Crusade.


Each year, AC churches across the U.S. use the material below to educate their brothers and sisters in Christ about International Missions. Offerings are collected and go directly to missions. 


Advent Christian ministry partnerships now exist in more than 20 countries. Indian pastors, Filipino missionaries, African pastors, children's homes, a Bible college, discipleship groups, feeding ministries, training events, and new church plants are all strengthened by money raised through Penny Crusade.


You don't have to wait for a special collection to donate, you can do it right now.
