Members of the Columbia Union Conference Executive Committee (some pictured above) traveled to Columbus, Ohio, last month for their third quarter meeting at the Allegheny West Conference’s newly opened headquarters.
At the news that tithe rose by $6 million or 9.09 percent above the previous year, the committee paused for a prayer of thanksgiving. “This would not be possible without the faithfulness of our members,” said Treasurer Emmanuel Asiedu.
They also rejoiced when Frank Bondurant, vice president for Ministries Development, announced that 55 churches have been planted unionwide this year.
