The ICP partner contribution is replaced by …
The partner churches in the ICP network received a request every year to make a financial contribution to the national mission. From now on we want to replace that question with something else, namely a six-monthly collection request. Discover how your church can contribute to the bigger picture. Read on.
ICP partner contribution will be replaced
Everything costs money. Anyone who leads a church or participates in community life, in whatever field, knows this. ICP also incurs costs; for material, productions, employees, administration, rent, and so on.
Previously, the churches were asked for an annual partner contribution, to pay for all kinds of activities. In order to achieve a broader connection with the churches, we would like to make a collection request twice a year from now on. In this way we become more visible to the entire municipality. It will be a moment to draw attention to the broader mission of the Dutch Church to disciple the nations.
From ICP we contribute an inspiring intro to the collection twice a year. This can be shared in newsletters, via social media and during the Sunday service. We hope this will give more visibility and connection. We will of course evaluate it over time. You will hear more about it in a few months.
