Approved Ministry Plan and Budget
Approved ministry plan and budget documents for 2019/20 fiscal year:
Dear DCC Member,
As we move into our next fiscal year (Sept 1, 2019 – Aug 31, 2020), we have much to celebrate. As of June 30, our total giving was $694,788 (93% of budget). As of July 31, 2019 we met our budget! Additionally, as of June 30, we gave $64,800 to needy individuals through our benevolence fund, $59,000 to mission support, and 1,894 food boxes given through our food bank. Thank you for your generosity.
Attached is the Draft Ministry Plan. As we begin our 2019-20 fiscal year, we are proposing the following priorities:
Communication: Evaluating and improving our church-wide communications.
Community: Strengthening our unity and reputation inside and outside of DCC.
Equipping: Developing more robust and relevant education opportunities.
Leadership: Focusing more attention on discipling and developing leaders.
Along with the Draft Ministry Plan, we have attached the Draft General Fund Financial Budget and Explanation Notes which matches our Ministry Plan priorities. Our Draft Budget proposes a 5.5% increase over last year to accommodate 1) our priorities, and 2) necessary changes to equalize taxable and non-taxable benefit plans for our full-time staff for compliance. Thanks to your generosity, our current giving already incorporates this increase.
We are grateful for your generosity, your love for DCC, and your active participation. On behalf of the elders and staff, thank you for making DCC a great church!
Warmly in Christ,
Paul Wardlaw, Elder President Jim Howard, Sr Pastor
