These last few weeks have been full of challenges and certain obstacles, including a significant decrease in weekly offerings for many. As a result, you are probably reviewing your budget to see where you can reduce or eliminate certain expenses and obligations.

One of the questions I recently received is what to do about financial commitments to Global Workers. Please know that just as your church might be facing a financial crunch due to changes in giving, our Global Workers are even more vulnerable when finances are tight.
As a result, we are recommending the following:

  1. Communicate with the Global Workers you support financially.
    If you have made a decision to maintain your current levels of support, encourage them with this good news! If you must reduce, pause or conclude your giving, let them know so they can plan accordingly.
  2. Continue to pray for our Global Workers.
    Every missionary I know values your prayerful support above all else. Even if you have to pause or conclude your giving, the Global Worker will be grateful for your prayers.  Find a list of our PAOC Global Workers and resource available here.

As the District Missions Rep, I am always willing to help you create or strengthen your church's missions strategy. Please let me know if I can serve you in any way.
