Giving to the North Central District
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
– Matthew 28:18-20
The purpose of the North Central District is simple. We exist to serve pastors, church leaders and churches as they invite people from every nation, tribe, people and language to trust, walk with and serve Jesus Christ.
Our district team provides spiritual leadership, coaching, resources and pastoral care to NCD pastors and church leaders. Put another way, we pastor pastors.
We are empowered to do this by the gracious support of our NCD family of churches. We encourge North Central District churches to give 1-2% of their annual budget to support our ministry of serving pastors, church leaders and churches. This support is critical to us, as local church support is our primary source of funding.
Likewise, we greatly value the contribution that individual donors make to our ministry. Their generosity is especially important for those on our district staff who raise support.
Beyond Minnesota, we have a strong commitment to our denominational family throughout the United States and across the globe. Therefore, we encourage our NCD churches to contribute 1% of their annual budget to our EFCA National Office. This denominational support goes to further our mission around the nation and throughout the world.
