Xenos Budget and Giving Update

Xenos Finance Information

As of January, 2019 (2018 financial information. 2019 will be available after Annual Pledge Campaign): 

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)  $ 7,871,200 
B) GF Donations Year-to-Date (What has been received from donors so far for year)  $ 7,958,900 
C) GF Receipts Same Time Last Year (Donations thru the same week last year)   $ 7,799,200

Conclusions for General Fund Year-to-Date:  We exceeded 2018 budget by over $85,000. 

We are seeking pledges to support a substantial increase in 2019 funding of up to 7.9% over last year's General Fund budget. The Fiscal Support Team established priorities for growth in 2019 based on the FST vote following the Vision & Stewardship Meeting.

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 at one of our properties in particular - Oakland Park Ave. in Clintonville close to the OSU campus.

Total Current Debt on All Properties = $880,000

Missions Giving - The largest part 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.
