Xenos Budget and Giving Update

Xenos Finance Information

As of October 15, 2017: 

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)  $7,501,500 
B) GF Donations Year-to-Date (What has been received from donors so far this year)  $5,698,500
C) GF Receipts Same Time Last Year (Donations thru the same week last year)   $5,233,500
D) GF Giving Forecast Year-to-Date (Model of what should be received by now, based on historic trends)   $5,575,400

Conclusions for General Fund Year-to-Date: Our budget increased >5% for 2017 over 2016. We are  seeing solid increased giving against pledges in support of that budget.The last part of every year needs to see giving rise to meet needs, and we are confident of God's leading and hand in our endeavors, so we just need to stay faithful and diligent in our use of His resources.

Building Fund - Servicing debt on mortgages for Xenos properties in central Ohio. The 'Securing Our Future' Building Fund provides funds to meet our very manageable debt obligations.

God delivered a new property into our hands in 2016, so we have added some debt at very manageable levels for our church. But we also know that God will make clear His plans for the use of that new property at some future point, so having a "war-chest" of cash reserves for this purpose makes sense. 

Years Pledged Received
 2014-17   $ 5,650,560   $ 5,344,010  

Total Current Debt on All Properties = $1,960,500

Many of the families who gave generously to expand ministry through our new facility in 2014 will have their pledges end in 2017. This will free up funds from those families, who we encourage to consider shifting these funds to other worthy Christ-centered purposes within the church.

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.
