Change in Five Star Mission Program for 2011
A change has been made to the Five Star Mission program for 2011.
The change involves the support level of a congregation's support of a missionary. In addition to paying all conference apportionments in full and contributing to a General Advance Special, a Conference Advance Special and an UMCOR Advance Special, a church must have a covenant relationship with a United Methodist missionary.
To be in a "Covenant Relationship," a congregation needs to give a minimum of $5 per member of $2,500, whichever is less. To be in Covenant Relationship a congregation needs to complete a "covenant" with a missionary through the General Board of Global Ministries. The form is available for download on the IGRC website at: . http://www.igrc.org/pages/detail/1968
