ABCOPAD Partners In Ministry Offering


Fulfilling Christ's Mission In The World

The Apostle Paul wrote: "I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."  (Philippians 1:3-6)

 None of us can do ministry in isolation.  We need each other if we want to see Christ's mission in our world fulfilled. ABCOPAD is committed to partnership. Below are bulletin inserts that help tell the story of the many ways ABCOPAD seeks to be a partner with congregations, pastoral leaders, and our wider ABC Family.  We need you to be a partner in our ministry together.  Thanks in advance for your generosity.

2018 Regional Goal: $225,000.00

I'm confused...

Wasn't this called "The ABCOPAD Regional Offering"? 
Why the name change to "ABCOPAD-Partners in Ministry"?

1.       Our ministry together really is one of Partnership, and so it was felt that it would be better to have the name reflect more of what we are about as an ABCOPAD Family.

2.       The second reason represents a change in the way we are doing ministry today. The name ABCOPAD Regional Offering places emphasis on a onetime gift to support structure and institution. Partners In Ministry (PIM) receives contributions throughout the year that supports exciting regional work enhancing ministry in the local church. Partners in Ministry keeps our vision focused on partnership with local churches and pastoral leaders to fulfill Christ's mission in our world. There will be many windows of opportunity throughout the year to highlight ways ABCOPAD is strengthening and encouraging ministry in your congregation thus providing numerous opportunities to promote PIM donations.

 The theme comes out of the vision for our Region. --

          ** To build Healthy Partnerships with Churches,
Pastoral Leaders and the wider ABC Family
to fulfill Christ's Mission in our world.
