Giving and Projects
For May Mission Month this year, the impact of COVID-19 may mean that you and your church are in a different financial position than anticipated. You may find yourself unable to give at the same level as you have previously. We understand. COVID-19 has changed our lives a lot, however, some things are still the same. Just like any other time, we encourage you to financially sow into global mission at a level that is generous for you. The amount that is generous and sacrificial today may be less than it was last year… but that’s not the point. The honouring of the widow’s ‘small’ gift in Mark 12 shows us that God looks at the heart of the gift, rather than the amount. So this May Mission Month we ask, “What’s generous for you?”
There are four key options for May Mission Month church giving:
1. Cross-Cultural Teams
First and foremost, we encourage you to financially partner with our cross-cultural teams. We are a mission organisation who sends people. People are at the heart of our story and especially in this time of global uncertainty, our cross-cultural teams need us to stick with them. In the midst of COVID-19, the vast majority of our cross-cultural workers are remaining on the ground, serving among the people groups God has called them to. They are continuing to live out their call of sharing the hope of Jesus among the least-reached.

2. Ministry Among a People Group
Gifts towards a people group are allocated within that team’s ministry as is most needed at the time. The gift may be allocated to a project, cross-cultural worker or candidate within that team.

3. Global Interaction’s Ministry
Gifts towards Global Interaction’s ministry as a whole enable us to direct the gift to the area of most need at the time.
Projects are part of team ministry strategies that ensure our workers can effectively live and serve among least-reached communities. Supporting a project is a tangible way to engage with cross-cultural mission. Ministry and development projects
are key aspects of our cross-cultural teams’ ministries and work towards meeting spiritual and physical needs of people in the communities our workers serve among. Support projects
are elements of a candidate or cross-cultural worker’s expenses, vital for their ministry. These projects focus on the elements necessary for ministry to begin and continue effectively.
Contact us to let us know of your planned support. This enables us to provide you with more information and gives us an idea of how much support a project is likely to receive. Use the pledge form below or email the project coordinator.

Individuals can give online through our website (make sure they add the church name in the comments section so the gift is linked to the church's record as well as their individual record.)
Alternatively, the church can receive the funds and transfer to Global Interaction through a direct deposit, post or via the website. We can send individual receipts to members who have given if you fill and send in the remittance spreadsheet.
For receipts to be issued in the 2019/20 financial year, gifts must be received at our office on or before 30 June 2020.
Pray for the project, the cross-cultural workers and the impact of the Good News.
Inform the church about how much you raised and what a difference you have made!
