|Giving Survey Synopsis||
Based on the 2005 financial records of the conference churches who participated in the Giving Task Force survey, Giving Task Force recommended to the Board of Overseers that each conference church prayerfully consider giving 2% or more of its overall budget to the Core Ministries of the Converge Great Lakes. Based on the input the task force received, they believe this recommendation is not only attainable, but also displays a healthy expression of partnership with the district in our shared goal of reaching communities for Christ.
