“To serve the Lord” is the reason that many of our church workers: teachers, directors of Christian education, deaconesses, and clergy chose the path of ministry. And yet, saddled with educational debt they serve with the worry and burden of being able to meet their financial obligations. This burden means there is a weight they carry that stays with them as they work to be good servants of the Gospel and fiscally responsible. GivingTuesday Video
This year on Giving Tuesday, we want to inspire you to give a special gift – one that will help to break the chains of student debt for our workers…your workers…workers in the harvest field. We have recently started a Student Loan Repayment Program to provide grants to church workers, both full and part-time, to help them repay college and/or seminary education loans.

WHAT IS GIVINGTUESDAY?
Celebrated on the Tuesday following U.S. Thanksgiving, and fueled by the power of social media and collaboration, GivingTuesday inspires millions of people across the globe to show up and give back to causes and issues that matter to them. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day, and touches every person on the planet. GivingTuesday takes place on December 3, 2019 this year.
