Advantages to United Church Mission

The following are advantages to switching to the United Church Mission model for giving:

  • eliminates the Fellowship Dues “head tax,” removing the need to aggressively clean membership rolls to reduce Dues payments
  • affirms all church giving as mission giving by creating a unified system of support
  • simplifies giving to the wider church, making it easier to understand and explain
  • mirrors biblical principles of percentage giving
  • reflects the message we give to our church members to give proportionally
  • promotes fairness for churches of all sizes and socio-economic make-ups
  • ensures that all settings of the church rise or decline together
  • maintains a reasonable minimum expectation for wider church support while making allowance for hardship situations faced by particular congregations
  • invites generosity, promoting giving to the wider and local church as well.
