Our Endowment/Memorial Committee periodically reviews our available funds and responds to requests for fund use. The last recommendation approved by the board involves Endowment Funds being utilized for the calling and resettling of our new minister.
In addition to our church facility, we own adjacent properties that provide us with control of 70% of the block where we are located. We also manage six residential rental units, half of which are used to house staff members involved in church operations. For the other three units, we are required to pay property taxes. To develop different revenue streams, these properties generate general upkeep and maintenance funds for their management and some church operations.
