Exciting News, #1

As 2012 draws to a (busy) close and 2013 begins to peek over the horizon, I’m excited to share some great news with you all:

Recently, the church’s Executive Team met and agreed unanimously to increase their support of me by $10,000 (for the year) beginning on January 1, 2013. They also affirmed their support of my role in the church and reaffirmed their commitment to get to the point where they’re completely covering my salary (with the increase, the church will be covering about 75%).

Which leads me to ask:

Will you partner with me to raise the remaining $10,000 I need to meet my budget for 2013?

God has been so faithful–through the gifts and support of over 50 people, including many of you–over the last couple years; and I’m so grateful for your partnership in this adventure. If you’d like to help support me financially, you’re welcome to do so:

[All gifts are fully tax-deductible.]

And if you’re part of The District Church and you’ve been supporting me, thank you first of all–I’ve appreciated your focused giving so much–but let me now encourage you to give directly to the church, with the reassurance that they’re working toward fully supporting me financially.

Praying peace, hope, joy, and love for you this Advent season,

Justin.

P.S. The observant among you will have noticed that this email is labeled “#1.” Yes, there’s more exciting news for 2013, and I can’t wait to share it in the coming weeks!
