District Asking

General Information:

The District Asking is an amount of money the District Connectional Ministries Council requests from the local churches to help support Central District ministries.  In 2016, the Central District Conference voted to maintain the 2017 District Asking at $2.50/member to be distributed in the following manner:

20% or $.60 of the $2.50/member will go to the various District Initiatives in Ministry with the Poor, such as: grants to mission agencies (including, but not limited to: Bidwell-Riverside Center, Children & Family Urban Movement, Hawthorn Hill Ministries) to increase partnerships with local congregations.

8% or $.20 of the $2.50/member will go to Leadership Development by supporting transformational leadership growth and development of clergy and laity in the Central District.

60% or $1.50 of the $2.50/member will go to Church Growth and Development, or the forming and initiation of new faith communities in several parts of our District.  These funds will also be used as seed money (grants) for revitalization of existing congregations in our rural and urban centers.

4% or $.10 of the $2.50/member will go for the Current Conference Mission Focus.

4% or $.10 of the $2.50/member will go to Emerging Needs

Current Giving Status 

Includes receipts processed and posted as of March 31, 2017.  Please contact the Conference Treasurer's Office at 515-974-8920 if you have any questions.
