At Annual Conference 2019, you will have the opportunity to give to four Special Offerings: the Youth Storm Fund (Disaster Response) on Wednesday, Rotifunk Hospital in Sierra Leone on Friday, Laity Ministries on Friday, and the Central Conference Theological Education Endowment Fund on Saturday.
Youth Storm Response
On September 22, 2018, Bishop Hope Morgan Ward joined youth from across the districts gathered at the bi-annual Conference Council on Youth Ministries (CCYM) meeting. She delivered a strong challenge to our youth to consider how we would respond with generosity to our sisters and brothers in need following Hurricane Florence. The youth have a goal to raise $500,000 for NC Storm Response. The NC Conference will match all gifts made to Youth Storm Response up to $500,000. Download the Youth Storm Response bulletin insert.

Mission of Hope: Rotifunk Hospital
Thousands of people with treatable health conditions die every day in Sierra Leone due to inadequate resources — clean water, electricity, medical equipment and supplies, medicines and skilled healthcare workers. This is why Mission of Hope: Rotifunk Hospital is helping to rebuild, staff, and make operational a full service, high-quality hospital and community health center in Rotifunk.

This offering provides leadership training for laity in discipleship.
Central Conference Theological Education Endowment Fund
This fund is to increase and strengthen opportunities for theological education for church leaders in Central Conferences (regions outside the United States). The Endowment Fund will provide sustainable, long-term support for theological education in Africa, Europe, and the Philippines.
