The Alma Hunt Offering for Virginia Missions will look different in the coming year, reflecting the changing world in which we live as we face the challenges of a global pandemic.
As always, this critical offering seeks to meet real needs of real people by funding ministries in a variety of specific areas. For the rest of 2020 and looking toward 2021, the allocations of this offering are being redirected in a way that will allow us to focus on human needs arising from the COVID-19 crisis:
- 70% of funds to WMUV-directed projects related to camp scholarships, mental health/domestic violence, and outreach missions ministries
- 30% of funds to BGAV-directed projects related to church planter financial relief, church Child Development Center scholarships, church hotspots for student internet access, and international partners
- All projects have a direct correlation to COVID-19 relief efforts
Funds will be distributed monthly and will begin in Summer 2020 in order to respond more quickly to immediate needs. View anticipated allocation projects for this year.
Some basic promotional materials will be mailed out to churches in the coming weeks. You can also view stories, download resources, and donate online at AlmaHunt.org!
Because of the time-sensitive nature of many of these critical needs and the plan to distribute funds monthly, we ask that you consider sending your offerings as early as possible this year.
