Tell the church what to do with $41 million


(system) #1

By Alexander Carpenter

Recently the Seventh-day Adventist Church received a $41 million tithe donation.

Spectrum editor Bonnie Dwyer writes: At Annual Council this fall the delegates will consider how to use this gift. I suggest that windfall funds such as this should not be used for normal operating expenses. They should be used to secure the financial future of the church. To my mind the future of the church lies in its young people. Therefore I would like to suggest that the funds should be used for the college and university endowment funds. But we'd like to hear from the Spectrum community.

Drop a comment below and let us know: What do you think the church should do with $41 million?

Spectrum will compile the suggestions and send a report to Jan Paulsen before Annual Council in October.
