The AMiA Attitude of Generosity
As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give. Matthew 10:8
Whether it’s your time or your talents or your treasure, generosity of the heart is at the core of being a disciple of Christ. When we freely and joyfully share the love of Christ and his gifts with others his abundance is poured out in our lives. We encourage our AMiA Churches and Works to teach this generosity in stewardship, not as something that ought to be done, but rather as an attitude of discipleship.
The Anglican Mission in America (AMiA) lives into this generosity of discipleship, as well, through the 10/10/10 Principle of Giving. This Principle of Giving is simply:
- Individual members tithe 10% of their income to their AMiA churches or communities
- AMiA churches and faith communities tithe 10% of their income to the AMiA
- The AMiA contributes 10% of the tithes from our churches and communities to our Global Partners in Mission in the Anglican Communion
The 10-10-10 Giving Principle ensures resources are available for mission and ministry at each level in the Anglican Mission. Please join us in this culture of generosity with a financial gift. For information about giving opportunities and methods of giving please contact us at the AMiA Office for the Apostolic Vicar.
Living the Mission
Our primary call as a missionary movement is to reach the lost and those outside the church through church planting, mainly through our existing churches. Several of our AMiA Resource Churches have supported new churches that have grown out of their existing membership into new areas of their cities and training and residency programs for new priests/planters. For insights into some of AMiA’s new works please visit our blog. Some of these efforts have been emboldened by grants from the AMiA Living the Mission fund.
Each year Living the Mission funds the establishment of new congregations in the U.S., supporting the growth of current AMiA churches and providing for new communities of faith, church planters and their families.
Join with us in reaching the lost for Jesus Christ through your generous gift to Living the Mission.
