2019 STRATEGIES/ACTIVITES
 
- Beginning our search for a multi passenger van.  We see this as being something we can sustain in five years (a low estimate of 5% on the Mulig youth principal would increase our funds by approximately $10,000 per year with a 5 year total of approximately $100,000.00).  Our goal is to have at least $100,000.00 in spendable endowment funds for the purchase, tax, licensing, and insurance of a multi passenger van.  Today a new van would cost $56,117.00 for a 12 passenger van.  Our goal is to buy used for around $35,000 with insurance costs to be around $1,800 per year.  We feel having a cushion in the endowment fund would allow us to still be able to use those funds for extra programming, technology, van repairs, or other needs as they arise.
- The Education Team is dedicated to our youth even past high school and will continue to contact youth who are in college or just out of high school at least two times per year.
- The Education team will ask Sunday School teachers to contact youth via post card/note card who have been in attendance for at least four consecutive weeks.
