Received in most congregations on May 20 & 27.
Pentecost celebrates the gift of the Holy Spirit to Jesus’ disciples, the birth of the church. Starting new churches is a God thing; it requires faith, maturity, and partnership within the denomination, the region, and the local community.
Since 2001, we Disciples have started 990 new churches, toward the goal of 1,000 new congregations by the year 2020.
The Pentecost Offering supports the new church movement. Half of the offering remains in the region, and half is used by Hope Partnership in new church ministry: assessment, training, and support for new church planters, and resources for new congregations.
Your generous gift to the Pentecost Offering supports the new church movement. You will help new church pastors develop a clear vision and plan for their ministry.
