Local Church Finances
Through the Partnership Fee, local churches support the cooperative ministries of the US National Conference (leadership teams, education, bishop’s office, communications, etc.). The amount is the same for every church: 3.5% of their total income.
We let churches deduct three types of income:
- Gifts designated for mission work (UB or non-UB).
- Giving toward new construction.
- Estate income.
All other income is then subject to the 3.5% fee.
This amount is a substantial reduction of the “assessments” churches paid prior to 2006, which typically ran 10-12%. We want to keep resources in our churches.
