As a church, we have determined that 5% of our revenue will be spent on mission support. Each year members of the congregation nominate organizations and at our annual meeting, we vote on which organizations we will support for the coming year. Our missions criteria is as follows:
Missions Selection Criteria
1. All mission organizations or missionaries must have a statement that is compatible with Good Shepherd Church Statement of Belief.
2. Each mission organization should be affiliated with the Canadian Council of Christian Charities or a Board of Reference to verify their financial credibility as Christian Stewards of monies entrusted to them.
3. Any person or organization that is supported must be committed to reaching people with the gospel of Jesus Christ and making disciples of them – Matt. 28:19-20
4.Where Good Shepherd Church chooses to do missions work or seeks to form a missionary body (e.g. a Missions Trip organized by Good Shepherd Church) and thus seeks to secure funding in the budget similar to that of which would be given to a mission (which meets the above qualified mission criteria), then the Board of Elders assume the fiscal and spiritual/theological stewardship of mission/mission work, and by this means fulfills the above three criteria for a supporting mission.
Below are the missions that we are supporting for 2018-2021
KNOWING, PRACTICING AND SHARING THE LOVE OF GOD.
