A special request for Kentucky United Methodists
The Kentucky Annual Conference voted this year to lower the apportionment rate to churches from 15% to 13%, creating a 2% reduction in “Our Mission Covenant” commitments for 2015. While local churches will receive a 2% reduction in “Our Mission Covenant” commitment, funding to extension ministries such as Campus Ministries, Urban Missions, and Camps would be cut significantly. So the Kentucky Annual Conference is encouraging churches to re-designate the savings from the reduction to support the Extension ministries. We affirm this and pray many congregations in the Kentucky Annual Conference will commit to re-designating their 2% reduction to support fruitful Extension Ministries.
As an Extension Ministry within the Connectional Structure, we request Kentucky United Methodists to prayerfully consider making the Thailand Methodist Mission to be one of the Extension Ministries that your congregation will commit to supporting. Please pray and do as the Lord leads you.
