Xenos Budget and Giving Update

Xenos Finance Information

As of October 8, 2018: 

General Fund (GF) - Paying for the foundation of the ministry God accomplishes domestically and that makes possible His kingdom work around-the-world through Xenos. 

A) Annual Operating Budget (What we have planned to spend for the year)  $ 7,872,000 
B) GF Donations Year-to-Date (What has been received from donors so far for year)  $ 5,767,100
C) GF Receipts Same Time Last Year (Donations thru the same week last year)   $ 5,698,600

Conclusions for General Fund Year-to-Date:  General Fund donations remain on target going into the final quarter of 2018. Many churches are voicing concern related to the effect of tax law changes for 2018 on chartiable contributions, but we're (prayerfully) heading in a good direction so far. We receive a much higher proportion of giving in the final months of the year, so we simply watch for faithful giving against plan to finish out the year in-the-black.

Debt - We do not have an active campaign for facility work going on at this time.  We retain some (very manageable) debt for our church and have substantial future room-to-grow on one of our properties in particular at Oakland Park Ave. in Clintonville close to The OSU campus.

Total Current Debt on All Properties = $880,200

Missions Giving - The vast amount of annual growth in Xenos' Missions work funding happens outside of the General Fund. Check out Xenos' Global Partnerships for more on the church's missions work primarily through indigenous movements around the globe, along with the Humanitarian Aid & Development Fund which focuses resources on the poor and at-risk domestically and internationally.
