As one of the four Special Offerings of the Presbyterian Church (USA) the Pentecost Offering unites us in a church-wide effort to support young people in Christ and inspire them to share their faith, ideas, and unique gifts with the church and the world.
Congregations keep 40% of the raised funds to initiate or support programs for young people in the community. We send our 40% to Waite House in Glens Falls that provides shelter and programs to the homeless youth in the area. 25% goes to the Young Adult Volunteer experience. Your gifts to the fund among other areas help provide funds for retreats, orientation events and counseling to help YAV’s discern God’s call. Another 25% of the funds supports ministries with youth, ages 12-18 and those called to accompany them. An example would be funding a new endeavor called the Senior Project, which offers a plan and path for graduating seniors to explore their next steps in faith, community and vocation. Lastly, 10% supports the supports “Educate a Child, Transform the World” national initiative, which was affirmed at the 221st General Assembly (2014).
Since the Pentecost Offering started in 1998, Presbyterians have raised more than $16 million for ministries that benefit younger members of God’s family. We believe we are called to do even more - to support and care for you people as they build a strong foundation of faith.
