Charles Barnes Fund

  • The Charles Barnes Endowment Fund was established for the sole purpose of addressing the issue of adequate funding for church growth and development
  • Helps new churches purchase land and build permanent places of worship
  • Started with a $25,000 contribution from the United Methodist Foundation in 2005
  • Twenty-five percent (25%) of the assets of closed churches across the conference are designated to this Fund
  • With the Fund balance over $500,000, interest can now be used to help purchase land and provide funds to new and existing churches
  • When the Fund balance reaches $3,000,000, both principle and interest can be used to help purchase land and provide funds to new and existing churches

 

Prayerfully consider making a contribution to the Charles Barnes Endowment Fund
