The church is blessed with an excellent team of mission funding specialists that are trained to help members and friends of Community of Christ find ways to
- protect assets,
- increase income, and
- support Christ’s mission.
Every day, our team of specialists works with people who are looking for ways to provide for themselves and their loved ones while also giving generously to support mission. Annual contributions to Worldwide Ministries are critical to help make Christ’s mission real in the lives of people. In addition, we often hear from many who say that through their estate plan, they can make the most significant gift in their lives and still plan a substantial inheritance for their families.
One of the ways we help members and friends understand how an estate and gift plan can work for them is through our seminars Giving Voice to Your Legacy. These educational opportunities for congregations and mission centers are designed to help individuals, couples and families
- generate more retirement income,
- create a will or trust to protect assets, and
- establish a gift that will support Christ’s mission.
These specialists are also available for confidential individual counseling appointments to consider all the different ways you can give to support mission while also providing for your loved ones.
