Things to Come

For the past fifty years, Church Investors Fund has assisted local churches in the US and Canada with financing for facilities development, as well as bookkeeping. For them, this is another avenue to help further the spread of the Gospel.

One of the ways they serve the churches they have current relationships with is by providing scholarships for pastors to attend Triennial. Churches with at least $25,000 in loans or investments through Church Investors Fund are eligible for a scholarship to cover the cost of Early Bird registration for one pastor or other representative. Simply fill out the form at the link below, and once Church Investors Fund verifies that you qualify, they will send a discount code to use when registering for Triennial.

One former recipient of a Triennial scholarship is Larry Burd, pastor emeritus at Calvary Baptist Church in Easton, Pennsylvania, and the Atlantic Association regional minister. He said, “I greatly appreciate the generous offer, not only for myself but for all the other pastors you are blessing with scholarships to the Triennial. What a blessing the Church Investors Fund ministry has been to so many. May the Lord bless you as you bless others.”

You should move quickly, though. There are only 20 more days until the end of Early Bird pricing for the 2024 Triennial. Starting February 1, the cost increases from $345 to $420 per person. (While the scholarship application will still be open after January 31, it will only cover the initial $345.) There is still time to apply, but you won’t want to delay!

And don’t forget to register for Triennial before February 1 to qualify for the Early Bird rate.

Join Deb Judas and the rest of the Missional Initiatives Team on January 25, 2024, at 9:00 a.m. (Pacific) as they talk about Deb’s book, Cultivating Shalom. Using the imagery and wisdom of Psalm 23, her book uncovers new insights on what it means to flourish and experience a deep sense of wholeness, delight, and wonder in all seasons of life.

We will examine how paying attention to the small things and putting simple practices into place will cultivate the wonder of shalom in your own life.
