Our Vision: A body of believers bound together by our love for Jesus Christ and his Word,
reflecting God’s love, grace and truth

August’s Collection - Servant Fund - The Servant Fund of the Apostolic Christian Church of America provides support for brothers and sisters sent as full-time missionaries by HarvestCall. Using a national fund for missionary support allows those sent to devote their time and attention to their ministry, rather than being required to raise their own funds. Another benefit is that those sent receive a consistent level of support that does not depend on title, size of congregation, or fund-raising abilities. With approximately 50 missionary brothers and sisters currently serving, our financial commitment to our brothers and sisters is around $1,300,000 per year. Servant fund collections have not been sufficient to cover this cost in the past and HarvestCall has used unrestricted funds to make up the difference. Those serving as well as HarvestCall express gratitude for your support of the Servant Fund and the outreaches of the Apostolic Christian Church.
