Meet the GETBA Jay McCasland Missions Event Fund Stewardship Team.
In September of 2015, the GETBA Executive Board voted to establish the Mission Event Fund. This fund was established for the purpose of assisting churches with short-term or one-time projects that might challenge them financially otherwise.
These projects could range from block parties, mass mailers, hosting an event, purchasing resources outside of budget constraints, providing a scholarship for a pastor to go on a mission trip, supplies for a project . . . the possibilities are many.
The fund was initially seeded with $5,000 and it was decided that $500 per month would be transferred from the general fund to the Mission Event Fund.
Oversight for the fund was given to the “Mission Event Stewardship Team” to make recommendations to the Executive Board for approval.
At our annual meeting in October of 2015 we renamed the “Mission Event Stewardship Fund” to the Jay McCasland Missions Event Fund” in honor of our former Director of Missions, the late Jay McCasland.
Churches can make a request for funding by contacting GETBA and seeking the request form, which will be passed on to the Jay McCasland Missions Event Stewardship Team.
