International Giving 2022

INTERNATIONAL GIVING
2017

Seekers Church continues to support many missions and ministries in the United States and other countries. The amount budgeted for international giving this year approaches 20% of what we expect to receive in offerings over the course of the year. Once our budget for the year was approved, and the overall amount available for international giving had been determined by the Stewards of Seekers Church, all Seekers were invited to request support for missions or ministries where they are personally involved.

After worship on February 19th the community met to determine how our international giving will be distributed. At that community meeting we affirmed support for 13 international missions and ministries:
