Free Methodists want to introduce  people to Jesus (Evangelism),
change the world  one person at a time (Discipleship), and alleviate suffering (Loving our Neighbour).

94% of our Ministry Plan Budget goes towards the Leadership
Ministry and all the support staff that makes ministry possible.

Leadership Ministry includes the NLT, BOA, MEGaP, SCOD,
Admin and Support Services, Church Health Coaches, Networks, Task Forces and all our Support Staff that help us make a difference in our communities. 

Our Giving Streams builds on the CORE Ministry Budget (Leadership and Support Staff) that allows for targeted ministry projects (click on each to expand).

As the BOA anticipated a post-COVID recovery, they determined that this year would need to be an investment year.  They believe all the ministry outlined in the Ministry Plan is important and needing of support.  As an investment in our collective ministry, they have approved deficit of $162,596 which is expected to be funded from prior year reserves.
