Share the Word of Jesus Christ with Others, Grow Disciples, and Care for the poor and hurting in our world and neighborhoods
MISSIONS MINSTRY BOARD
The Missions Ministry Board coordinates HCC’s service, spiritual, and financial aid to the local, national and worldwide ministries supported by HCC. The Missions Ministry is one of the largest ministries at HCC, receiving 20% of HCC’s General Fund to distribute to deserving evangelistic, caring and compassion ministries as well as other outreach endeavors with a focus on children, human trafficking, and spreading the Word. We are guided by our Purpose Statement: “Share the Word of Jesus Christ with Others, Grow Disciples, and Care for the poor and hurting in our world and neighborhoods.”
In 2017, we distributed more than $160,000 to 20+ organizations and individuals who work to glorify God and grow God’s kingdom. Our decisions to distribute the funds entrusted to us are made using the following guidelines:
Proactively involved Ministry Liaison
50%/50% split between Presbyterian (P) and Non-Presbyterian (NP) ministries.
Reasonable distribution between Caring, and Evangelistic/Discipleship and Missionary ministries (approximately 33%/33%/33%)
Reasonable geographic distribution based on between Local/Regional, National, International locations (approximately 50% international includes supporting ministries on every continent, except Antarctica)
The HCC Missions Board also monitors the success and integrity of the missions we support by periodically reviewing an Accountability Form which addresses the Ministries’ performance toward its mission statement, its financial health and integrity, and HCC commitment level. Each Ministry Liaison is responsible for getting the form completed and reporting to the Board regarding the rationale for our ongoing support. The Missions Board also coordinates presentations from various missions during the Life and Works segment of our weekly Worship Service.
