the amount contributed each year to the GCF by the people of the Central District

The GCF is our primary means of supporting global Alliance ministries—it is our “missions fund.” It includes support accounts for Marketplace Ministries, Envision, apprentices, and International Ministries workers. The GCF enables hundreds of workers to care for the physical and spiritual needs of lost, hurting, and disenfranchised people in 70 countries and to help create access to the gospel where no access yet exists. It is a global fund that empowers workers to be nimble and responsive—walking through doors God may suddenly open into some of the most spiritually impoverished regions on the earth.

Approved specials are field-approved special projects that facilitate ministry through church planting, evangelism, education, leadership development, relief, building projects, and worker vehicles to name a few.

Work Funds

Work funds contributions are used to support a designated worker’s ministry projects that are not funded through the team budget.

Outfit funds are added to the worker’s allowance as taxable income and can be used at the discretion of the worker for items such as appliances or home furnishings, etc.
