Where does it go? What is it spent on?
Theses are good questions that any reasonable person will want to know the answer to before donating money to the Conference Budget offering.
The two main areas that the Conference Budget Offering funds are 1) the youth of our conference, and 2) public evangelism. The Conference Budget Offering is split into funding five specific purposes on the basis of a percentage of the total offering received. The pie chart below demonstrates the percentage distribution of the Conference Budget Offering as voted by the NNEC Constituency.
The largest bulk of the Conference Budget Offering funds the youth of our conference through Elementary Education funding, Worthy Students in secondary education at our schools, and funding of the expenses of Camp Lawroweld.
The next big percentage block of the Conference Budget Offering funds public evangelism in the form of appropriations to the local churches to help fund public evangelism efforts.
There is also a small portion of the Conference Budget offering that helps cover Camp Meeting expenses.
This Line Chart shows the actual totals of the Conference budget Offering over the last five years.
