The Haystack Giving Society was established by the Wider Church Ministries Board of Directors as a Wider Church Ministries permanent fund in early 2013. Entry level into the society is $1,806 in commemoration of the 1806 Haystack Prayer Meeting out of which the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Mission (one of the predecessor mission bodies of Wider Church Ministries/Global Ministries) was established. The majority of the funds will be placed in a permanent endowment fund.
The Haystack Giving Society supports current operations and future demands of Wider Church Ministries, including our Global Ministries Partnerships.
Contributions may be made to the principal of this Fund at any time. Gifts for the Haystack Giving Society should be directed to:
