AVPC believes that God calls us to bless our entire world. He even teaches us how to go about doing so, through planting churches and through ministering to people’s physical, medical, and educational needs. These activities often are gathered under the word “missions.” Our church supports missions through financial gifts, prayer for our missionaries, and through sending out our own members for short or long-term mission endeavors.
Faith Promise Giving
Our AVPC missions budget is based on two sources:
- A donation from our church’s General Fund
- Through designated gifts that we call “Faith Promise” gifts
Each February, during our missions conference, we ask our congregation to complete Faith Promise pledge cards to help us set our missions budget. These pledges help us regularly support our missionaries and offer various one-time gifts to other missionaries and agencies in times of need.
