In the Treasury Department, we have the honor of receiving the resources that flow into God’s church from his faithful children and distributing it to different ministries that help spread God’s love and word throughout our area.
These funds and gifts make the growth and development of this family we call the church possible.
The Government of Heaven is about benevolence, and this is exemplified in the church. Selfless gifts and resources flow from God’s children, extending the loving arm of God to more and more places.
Remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive,” Acts 20:35.
All thanks be to God for providing and blessing the Conference and its members throughout the years, without Him our work would be in vain. We are privileged to work with such a competent team who go the extra mile. Most of all, a big thank you to all the Northern Conference Church Members returning a faithful tithe and freewill offering to sustain the Lord’s work.
