It is a high priority for us that we partner with the local congregations and that they invest in the ministries that we undertake.  We seek accountability of funds use in each related project and each is to be specifically for a Seventh Day Baptist ministry.  If you send the gift in the name of someone else, upon your request we can contact that person with a thank you card letting them know how their gift was put to use.

We hope that you will prayerfully consider how the blessings you have received this year may be intended to bring joy through your sharing in our ministry together.
