Story by Celeste Ryan-Blyden
More than 10,000 people joined the Columbia Union Conference family during the last two years, including 5,300 in 2017. Members gave $133.9 million in tithe, a 3.06 percent increase over 2016, and more than $2.1 million in world mission offerings.
In addition, enrollment reached nearly 9,000 in the union’s 78 schools. These are just a few highlights from the Columbia Union Conference 2017 Annual Report, themed “Great is Your Faithfulness.” The 24-page report also highlights how leaders addressed the union’s priorities, partnered to serve and support ministry at the local and global church levels and advanced mission in the eight-state Mid-Atlantic territory.
“I am encouraged by the many ways we can see God moving and working in and through our dedicated members and ministry leaders,” shares President Dave Weigley. Read the report at columbiaunion.org/annualreport.
