Bishop Shares Year End Message
In a recent letter to pastors of churches in the Oregon-Idaho Conference, Bishop Hoshibata shared both some signs of vitality and hope he is seeing, and his concern for the financial strength of the Annual Conference. While recognizing the financial challenges that local churches face, he asked them to faithfully consider what they can do to close the gap of unpaid contributions to the shared ministry funds that provide for the work of he Annual Conference and the General Church around the world.
Conference Director of Stewardship and Finance, Bill Mullette-Bauer recent took the time to answer some questions about the financial health of the conference. You can read his interview here.
