How to Bring the Gospel Overseas Through the China Connection

posted on March 25, 2014, under Conference by

by Phil Bond, Florida Conference Development and Planned Giving Director

What Is the China Connection Project?
The China Connection funds 130 missionaries who are church planters in China. By faith, they are already serving there, believing that the funds will be available to sponsor them in 2014.

Why Is Florida Conference Involved?
We are returning to and emphasizing the original purpose of the Seventh-day Adventist Church—the Gospel Commission—as given by Christ in Matthew 28:19-20.

We believe in the inspired words of Ellen G. White:

“…for the prosperity of the home work depends largely, under God, upon the reflex influence of the evangelical work done in countries afar off.”
(Gospel Workers, p. 465)

Who Is Coordinating This Project?
The project coordination is under the leadership of the China Union Mission President, Bob Folkenberg Jr., and his wife, Audrey.

How Can I Make a Donation to This Project?
If the donation is coming directly from your local church, it can be sent with the church’s monthly remittance to the Conference, marked “China Connection.”

Individuals may make donations online at Adventist Giving through their local church web site. Members at local churches not currently participating in Adventist Giving may instead use Florida Conference’s Adventist Giving link.

Alternatively, checks made payable to Florida Conference Association may be written with “China Connection” noted then mailed to:

 Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists
Attention: Andrew Elliott, Treasurer
P.O. Box 2626

When Are Donations Due?
Commitments to this project are due April 30, 2014. Payment on these commitments should happen as soon as possible.
