Xenos Budget and Giving Update

Xenos Finance Information

As of December 18, 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)  $ 7,535,500
C) GF Receipts Same Time Last Year (Donations thru the same week last year)   $ 7,375,050

Conclusions for General Fund Year-to-Date:  Just under 2 weeks remain in 2018 and we are just on target to cover the annual budget. Our typical annual pattern would indicate that we need a final push to cover the last ~4.5% of our General Fund budget. We will be seeking up to substantial 8.1% increase in 2019 funding, so finishing strong now will help us understand God's leading in what to fund for the next year. 

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 = $878,200

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.
