LEARN MORE ABOUT THE CREATIVE EVANGELISM FUND
Funding for special evangelistic outreach, such as the “March Madness” revival, is provided from the Creative Evangelism Fund of the Pacific Union Conference—one of the most important and dynamic ways in which churches can take on projects for growth and innovation. Developed in 1998, the Creative Evangelism fund has helped to channel millions of dollars into Evangelistic projects that are creative, innovative, and effective.
Pacific Union Conference President Ricardo Graham states that the funds are used for projects that—
Show a high level of member involvement
Are both measurable and sustainable
Model concepts that can be used by other congregations
And—have solid local funding support.
The Lord has blessed the efforts to manage and grow the fund, and it now has an endowment approaching $15 million dollars. Last year this translated into over $900,000 dollars in available funds that were allocated to the various church and conference projects.

Remember—that promise is made in the context of the calling that each of us is given to be evangelists and witnesses to the Gospel found in Matthew 28:19-20:
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:19-20, KJV
