Your local conference is a sisterhood of churches that helps each congregation accomplish important objectives that are beyond the reach of any one church. The Conference Advance offering addresses specific needs in the overall conference as well as a variety of special projects. One of the largest portions goes to fund Christian Education.
Another substantial part of the Conference Advance offering is set aside for local evangelism to finance programs most local congregations cannot shoulder on their own.
Elementary education, child evangelism, academy operation, the monthly Union magazines, summer camps, and youth evangelism are also areas supported by the Conference Advance offering.
All of these educational and life-changing programs are possible because individual members choose to contribute a suggested amount of approximately one to two percent of their income to the Conference Advance offering.
The Conference Advance offerings make it possible for every member to receive their Union magazine at no charge.
Conference camps, supported by Conference Advance offerings, provide one of the best opportunities for children to make a decision for Christ.
