ACTS 1:8 FUND
The Acts 1:8 Fund is LifePark’s designated fund for Local, Regional, and International Mission Opportunities. This fund is outside the church budget dedicated to help spread the Gospel by supporting those advancing the Word of God to unreached people and places.
Missionaries and those participating in missions locally, regionally, or globally apply for funds by submitting a request to the Finance Team of Missions Council. The Finance Team prays over and discusses each request to ensure there is good stewardship of the funds. If the request meets our missions vision, then funds are dispersed to help support our call to the Great Commission.
The money within this fund is generated solely by contributions from the church congregation. This entire fund is only made possible by YOU!
One way the Acts 1:8 Fund has been used is to help support our new regional partners – Jeff and Kelly Belcher. They are working to plant a church in what is considered one of the most unreached cities of our nation – to purchase a permanent building for their congregation. Though they are still looking for the right property, they are getting closer to the necessary funding it would take to purchase!
At times missionaries around the world reach out for special needs support. Missionaries such as Mark, Priscilla and Joshua Hutto live in Italy and work with refugees seeking asylum. The Acts 1:8 Fund has helped them fund expenses and travels through the area to reach more people.
