Healthy and growing denominations recognize that ministries often have a limited lifecycle. Many plateau, go into decline, and even die. It is therefore essential that presbyteries be on the alert for the new ministries that God would have them begin. Thriving denominations typically count 3% of their ministries as new startups at any given time. To match this goal would means the Presbytery of Yukon needs to be starting one new ministry every 16 months. We are behind the curve!
This fund will support two new ministries in the presbytery. $15,000 would provide matching money for a G.A. two start-up grants through the PC(USA)’s 1001 New Worshiping Communities campaign. There are two start-ups currently under exploration in the presbytery. Your gift can make these start-ups happen!
