As Presbyterians, we discern God’s call and decide how we are to respond to that call in the midst of community.  Our per capita contributions support the infrastructure needed for our discerning and deciding our witness beyond the local congregation; the mission contributions reflect our unified expression of the ministry commitments resulting from the prayerful engagement of the broad range of voices, gifts, and experiences throughout our presbytery.  Both are essential components to our life together.  We give thanks for those who regularly contribute to Basic Mission and Per Capita; investing in the Body of Christ as we live into and sustain our faithful witness near and far!

Basic Mission Giving of the Presbytery of Philadelphia

An Invitation to Generosity as Partners in Ministry

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:21

doveaTotal Goal for 2020 Mission Giving: $677,000

What Is Basic Mission Giving?

Basic Mission Giving is the primary means by which our congregations financially partner with the Presbytery as we birth, nurture, and leverage new and existing ministries. As congregations and individuals contribute a proportion of their total receipts to Basic Mission, our leadership stewards these resources through faithful expressions of the mission of God in word and deed. A portion of these dollars can be directed to both the Synod of the Trinity and the Presbyterian Mission Agency as we support and connect with the larger work and witness of the national church.

Contributions to Basic Mission may be made monthly, quarterly or annually, and are shared with both the Synod of the Trinity and the Presbyterian Mission Agency (PMA) as we support and connect with the larger work of the PC(USA) nationally. Basic Mission can include both undesignated gifts, which fund the Presbytery’s, Synod’s and PMA’s annual operating budgets, and directed or designated giving, which supports specific programs and mission partners (but excludes Per Capita or Special Offerings).  The Presbytery’s budgeted share of designated Mission Giving for 2021 is $420,000.
