FEBRUARY 25 - LOCAL CONFERENCE BUDGET

The Seventh-day Adventist Church follows a biblical model of organization. Jethro, by divine inspiration, encouraged Moses to set layers of leadership so overseeing people would be more efficient. Moses would focus on the most difficult and important situations of Israel (Ex. 18).

Some church members wonder what would happen if all the sacrificial and generous giving stayed in local congregations. That describes a congregational model of thinking in which very little to no accountability exists outside the immediate congregation.

In addition to the point of accountability, which is necessary for the leadership as well as the congregations, the mission of the church has flourished locally and globally, in part, because of this organizational model. Some congregations in your conference are not able to sustain a pastor’s salary. Yet Paul declares, “… The laborer is worthy of his wages” (1 Tim. 5:18). Because of the sisterhood of churches, small and poor congregations are blessed with pastoral ministry.

This is just one of the many benefits of having a Conference oversee the work of a region. Faithfulness and growth are often the result. God’s work is local, regional, and global. Jesus said, “…you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

May your giving today reflect your commitment to support your local congregation as well as your conference so that God’s kingdom advances throughout the Conference territory.
