The District Sponsorship Program (DSP) arose out of a direction by Synod to:
- use assets effectively, encouraging more support for mission and ministry
- explore funding models outside of congregational giving
- achieve new churches planted
- seek sustainable ministry
- establish a systematic committed generation of funds around particular projects – namely church planting and youth and young adult ministries.
Support of the DSP includes but is not limited to financial assistance, prayer and advocacy.
Sponsorship rather than a one-off donation has been chosen as the model in order that commitment is made to keep these projects going. These ministries are the way our church can grow into the future. These ministries allow us to make a difference in peoples’ lives – including our existing members.
