Christian Community

Finances

Christian Community operates on a volunteer basis. This is a choice that has been made by our minsters, allowing them to come alongside the community on equal footing and for the funds to be directed to other ministry needs. We are blessed and humbled by their heart for ministry and their ongoing willingness to serve us in the ways they do.

If you wish to support the ministry of Christian Community, you may
