The Ministers Council Endowment
The Ministers Council Endowment provides financial support to equip ministerial leaders through providing quality resources that increase effectiveness in their ministries and communities. There are two ways to designate your gifts: to the Ministers Council Endowment or to the Together in Ministry Fund. A small portion goes to offset administrative expenses.
The Together in Ministry Program has allowed thousands of clergy and laity to participate in peer group learning as a means to gain greater support, fellowship, learning, and encouragement in ministry. The Lily Endowment provided generous resources to implement this program, but now grant funds have been expended. The desire to continue these valuable peer groups still burns. To enable this program to continue we have established the Together in Ministry Fund.
By partnering in with the American Baptist Foundation, we have made it possible for supporters to give in creative ways. There are a variety of options including:
- Bequests through your will
- Gifts of stock or marketable securities
- Gifts of life insurance
- Gifts that pay income: charitable gift annuities or charitable remainder trusts
- Real Estate
