Click to download: Diaconal Fund 2019 (Includes procedure, contact persons and timeline.)
In ICF, we live in the awareness that Christ gave His life for us. So, we would like to be a giving community. As we grew from a student movement to a church (2013), with the energy and spirit of a movement, we would like to answer to our calling – to care for each other in a more structured way. Until 2018, the deacons have been functioning as a judicial committee on financial requests and gifts received from family members. For privacy reasons, now one deacon has been chosen to be the contact person. This also means that requests can be processed faster. Daniel Garcia will be the deacon in charge of this ministry as well as the contact person for the diaconal funds. To make sure requests and decisions are being made in a responsible and balanced way, Karen will help Daniel in making decisions. As a leadership, we strive to answer requests within one week. Besides, we will create a special fund to answer diaconal needs. Of course, we are not able to give long-term financial support. However, we are happy and blessed to announce that we would like to support people who suffer from financial stress. Think about your stolen bike or other occasions which confront you with temporary financial challenges. Not just financial, you can also come with more practical diaconal needs.
