MB Foundation Launches COVID-19 Church Relief FundBrenda Hamm
In response to the difficult circumstances our MB churches are struggling through financially, MB Foundation has created the COVID-19 Church Relief Fund. This fund will be used to assist MB churches who need it the most and will be administered by our USMB National Director and District Ministers. We are asking churches and individuals who have extra resources to contribute to this fund, and in doing so, link arms with our national family to help churches maintain financial stability, prevent major staff transitions, and continue to preach the word of God and provide pastoral care.
“What a great way to lean into the words of 2 Corinthians 8:14, ‘At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need.’ We believe it is our acts of generosity, even in difficult times, that are a witness to the faithfulness of God and allows us to take hold of real life,” said Jon Wiebe, President and CEO of MB Foundation.
The COVID-19 Church Relief Fund has been established through the generosity of a donor and a matched gift by MB Foundation together totaling $50,000. Contributors have the opportunity to double the donation impact by taking advantage of matching these funds dollar for dollar. “We will see evidence of God at work during this time as this fund grows and is able to meet the needs of churches in our MB family,” said Wiebe. Contributions may be made by sending a check to MB Foundation or online at mbfoundation.com/COVID19ChurchReliefFund.
