Emerging Ministries

Two emerging ministries in our district, Parables Community and The Gathering Chicago, celebrated 2-year anniversaries. The district has provided financial support and will continue to do so through 2019. District support has been shared on a decreasing graduated scale. As a result, the ministries have sought funding from other sources, one of which is the Wieand Trust. At the March meeting, The Mission and Ministry Board approved grants to both ministries from the Wieand Trust through 2019. Directing pastors, LaDonna Nkosi (The Gathering Chicago) and Jeanne Davies (Parables Community) are grateful for the genius and generosity of the Wieand Fund trustees, whose foresight provided a means of funding for ministry in Chicago and suburban areas.
