Transcript: Guatemala, Bolivia, China, Kentucky, Romania, Haiti, Peru, Uruguay, Loudoun County Virginia, Honduras, Zambia, St. Vincent, Romania, Senegal - Distributed $60,000 in grants and scholarships in the past 5 years - Current assets total approximately $250,000 (growth solely through Capital Gains) - 2013 scholarships and grants budget is $20,000 - Future growth through expanded vision and trusting in God's provision "Give praise to the Lord, proclaim His name; make known among the nations what He has done." Psalm 105:1 Fundraising About God About the Holy Spirit Finance and Auditing History About Jesus Policies and Procedures Board of Directors Board of Directors a. Define the vision b. Approve the budget c. Consider and approve funding applications d. Direct the Foundation through three specialized committees e. Invite people to be involved The Bible is God's Word to us written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth Fundraising The purpose of the Loudoun Missions Foundation is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ around the world by supporting mission trips and missionaries in training from Christian churches and organizations in Loudoun County. By providing scholarships and other resources, the foundation helps equip those willing to serve for the work God has prepared for them. Mission Statement Finance/Auditing "If the Great Commission is true, our plans are not too big, they are too small." - Pat Morely "For there are three that bear record in Heaven, the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one." 1 John 5:7 Moving forward... how can we work together? Responsibilities God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are equal and are one God. "So Christ Himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up." Eph. 4:11 Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again some day to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords. The Foundation was founded in 1991 with funding from the estate of a local church member with a heart for local and global missions. Originally known as the Purcellville Baptist Church Foundation, the organization has recently become a stand-alone entity and has applied for 501c3 nonprofit status with the IRS. God's Supply "God's work done in God's way will never lack God's supply." -Hudson Taylor Wayne Ruckman, President Kevin Rudy, Vice-President Jennifer Jenkins, Secretary Dondria Culbert Peter Buck Nancy Brown Jaoni Wood "Jesus said to him, 'I AM the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but through Me.'" John 14:6 Statement of Faith -develop plans for ways we can work together God's Work Policies and Procedures -to pray for unbelievers -to pray for missionaries -discuss ideas Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ. About Salvation Loudoun Missions Roundtable "And let us consider how to stir one another up to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together... but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the day drawing near." ~ Hebrews 10:24-25 We invite representatives from churches in Loudoun County to join together: About the Bible Wayne Ruckman, President Kevin Rudy, Vice-President Dondria Culbert Jennifer Jenkins Peter Buck Nancy Brown Jaoni Wood The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and Son of God. He is present in the world to make men and women aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He prepares the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under his control daily. Our vision is to help bring area churches together around the shared mission of taking the gospel of Jesus Christ to people in Loudoun County and around the world.
