The New Church Movement is supported primarily by funds raised by the Pentecost Offering. The 2009 offering has a theme of ‘Expanding the Table’ which means as Disciples, we welcome and embrace with the love of Christ all who will come to the table.
Money from the offering is evenly divided between New Church Ministry, which represents the wider church, and the region where the giving congregation is located. To meet the challenge of continuing to grow new churches, all congregations are asked to participate in this special day offering. Since 2001, more than 600 new churches have been started, reaching more than 40,000 new Disciples in communities where we once had no witness.
