If you listen to the podcast, you heard the conversation that lead to the #1615 Challenge. We didnt have a name for it at that time, but in the midst of our conversation we agreed that we wanted to be intentional about raising money for the World Missions Department of the Church of God in Christ.
A lot of great ministry is taking place all over the globe and it take resources and finances to make that happen. We want to do our part to be of support to this aspect of ministry. And we want others who believe in missions to help with a contribution to help us reach our donations goal.
So why is it called the #1615 Challenge? Easy. We wanted a hashtag# to let people know what we are doing and that missions is dear to our heart. #1615 is what will be on the t-shirts given to donors who give $50+. We want to spread the Word.
And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation..." (NRSV)
