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 2017, the Central District Conference voted to increase the 2018 District Asking to $3.50/member to be distributed in the following manner:

15% or $.53 of the $3.50/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.

10% or $.35 of the $3.50/member will go to Leadership Development by supporting transformational leadership growth and development of clergy and laity in the Central District.

72% or $2.52 of the $3.50/member will go to Church Growth and Development, or the forming and initiation of new faith communities in several parts of our District.  $10,000 each of these funds will go to DM Amor y Paz, DM Burns, and DM Southern Sudanese Ministry. These funds will also be used as seed money (grants) for revitalization of existing congregations in our rural and urban centers.

3% or $.10 of the $3.50/member will go to Emerging Needs

0% or $.00 of the $3.50/member will go for the Current Conference Mission Focus.  This area is being allocated to zero, as it is already funded at the local church level.

Current Giving Status 

Includes receipts processed and posted as of July 31, 2018.  Please contact the Conference Treasurer's Office at 515-974-8920 if you have any questions.
