Where Gifts Come From (Sources)

Many view Synod as having the power and resources with the District next in line with authority and resources. The truth is that we are all dependent on the support of congregations to accomplish our work together. The Southern District is supported by about 80 percent of income coming from congregation gifts. Congregations determine support for District operations, mission and ministry. We are truly in partnership in the work of making disciples for Jesus Christ.
