A Heart for the Nations ... A Clear and Compelling Call

October Mission Drive 2020

October Mission Drive is one of two annual opportunities to spotlight, celebrate, and intentionally support the work of the Gospel among our global network. When you donate, 100% of what you give is directed to the ministry you specify.

 

Harvest Partner Mission Giving is the life-line support that connects churches with an available partner nation of their choice through the Harvest Partners ministry. Mission Giving is vital to keep the Church of God of Prophecy operating and functioning effectively within our nations and regions by assisting various needs, such as national overseers' budgeted work and personal allotments and national or regional expenses.

 

Harvest Partner Project Giving and Helping Hand Ministries are designed to assist with approved special projects within our nations and regions which have been pre-approved by the respective General Presbyter of the area. Local churches can contribute to Project Giving through Harvest Partners and individuals through Helping Hand Ministries.

 

One Child Fund ministry is designed to reach and bless orphaned and needy children in the name of Jesus. Your support connects you to a ministry that provides shelter, food, clothing, and opportunities for these children to learn about Jesus and to grow in His love. This ministry allows churches and individual donors to support the Church of God of Prophecy orphanage ministry in twelve nations with over twenty orphanages and children's homes, reaching over 800 orphaned and needy children.

 

As we pray for our Global family over the next few weeks and throughout this month, may the Lord lead each of us to a place of service and connection in the global task of sharing the whole Gospel to the entire world. Thank you in advance to each local church for prayer support and giving to Missions.

 

Blessings, Catherine Payne
