After the success of last year’s Christmas Challenge, which brought in nearly $20,000 for gospel ministry in Scotland’s poorest communities, we’re again asking you to consider supporting 20schemes this Christmas time with the Christmas Challenge Fund 2016.
We have managed to secure $3,250 as match funds this year. So every $ raised in new gifts in the month of December will be matched up to $3,250 making this year’s Challenge Fund Goal $6,500 (or £5,230).
Challenge Fund 2016 Goal – $6,500 / £5,230
At 20schemes, our goal is to build healthy, gospel-centred churches in Scotland’s poorest communities. $6,500 can help to support, mentor, disciple and train indigenous people in Scotland to become the future church leaders of gospel-centred churches in the schemes.
If we can find just 163 people who will give $20, that amount will be matched by our funder and we will meet our target of $6,500. Or if we can find just 131 who will give £20, that will be matched by our funder and we will meet our target of £5,230!
You can give a one-off donation of any amount. However, why not set up your gift as a recurring monthly donation and partner with us over the long haul?
Also, as a bonus, we’ll send any new donors in December a free eBook. Mez McConnell and Mike McKinley’s book Church In Hard Places was published in January this year. Check out the promo video below. * see footnote
