We are thrilled to announce that the $500,000 matching grant challenge for Great Commission Day has been met. As of Friday, June 7, the Alliance family has given $570,000 to the offering, and the generous Alliance donor has released the $500,000 matching gift.
$280,000 of the $570,000 was presented by Alliance churches and individuals who brought their offerings to Alliance Council earlier this month—nearly doubling what was offered at Council 2017.
Thank you, Alliance family! Your generosity has unleashed more than $1 million to launch these new workers to live and work among the world’s least reached and most overlooked peoples.
However... that’s not all the news!
A Fresh Challenge:
Even before the matching challenge had been met, God was working in the heart of an Alliance Metropolitan District church that was seeking Him for guidance. Moved by His Spirit and inspired by this historic opportunity, this church was prompted this week to donate $400,000 as a challenge gift for other Alliance churches to give beyond what they believed possible. The church’s pastor writes, “We hope this will encourage other Alliance churches to ‘be courageous’ and step into the Jordan with us.”
Together, we’re making great progress in proclaiming Jesus where His name has yet to be heard. Will your church accept this challenge to solidify our sending momentum?
To seize this challenge opportunity, please use one of these two convenient options:
