The CDC Board of Directors invite you to participate in raising funds to support our Mission.
Central District Conference remains committed to our Mission of
- Promoting Christ-like communities of hospitality,
- Calling and nurturing Anabaptist leadership, and
- Supporting missional partnerships.
In support of this Mission and the current goal of $350,000 in additional financial support for emerging communities of faith (50%), subsidy for additional staff (30%) the clergy development fund (10%), and the missional activities fund (10%),
We are committed to being a conference that supports, resources, and walks alongside emerging Anabaptist communities of faith. We will be adding staff to our leadership team , up to .5 FTE, that will focus on emerging communities of faith. We will also build an Emerging
Congregations Fund to provide grants for these communities.
- Subsidy for adding staff for three years $100,000
- Emerging Congregations Fund $170,000
We are committed to calling and nurturing Anabaptist leadership. Providing seminary scholarships, supporting continuing education, and offering support for wholistic health are priorities identified by our CDC ministerial committee.
- Clergy Development Fund $40,000
Finally, we are committed to growing our Missional Activities Fund. Congregations have received resources through this fund for Reign of God Grants, Wider-Stand Anti-Racism training, and other creative projects that expand missional partnerships and develop faithful responses to injustices in communities.
- Missional Activities Fund $40,000
The total goal over three years, 2022-2025, is $350,000
