Christian Community Credit Union Matches $10,000 for Pastor Leadership Training in Asia
I am thrilled to share an announcement released by Christian Community Credit Union. . .
(San Dimas, CA, December 8, 2010) Christian Community Credit Union donated $10,000 in a matching grant campaign to provide pastor development programs in Asia. In partnership with Asian Access, the amount will provide leadership development programs to pastors in nine countries as well as help launch the Asian Access ministry in Bangladesh.
“I am grateful to Christian Community Credit Union for investing in this program that will make a difference. Their encouragement through this matching gift is a tribute to their commitment to Christ and expanding His Kingdom,” says Joseph W. Handley, Jr., President of Asian Access. “What a joy to see more pastors trained with vision, character and competence to lead the church of the future.”
The donation was made possible through Christian Community Credit Union’s “Cards that Give to Missions” credit card program. Every time cardholders make a purchase using their Credit Union credit or debit card, the Credit Union donates to missions like Asian Access and other ministry projects. The donation is based on a portion of the interchange income the Credit Union receives from retail merchants.
“It’s a blessing that we have the opportunity to help build God’s Kingdom while serving our members’ financial needs,” says John Walling, Christian Community Credit Union President/CEO. “Thanks to our members’ use of their missions-giving credit and debit card, everyday purchases can help change lives in an eternally significant and God-honoring way.”
With assets over $500 million, Christian Community Credit Union has over 29,000 members worldwide and has served as a financial partner to Christian churches, ministries and their members for over 50 years.
Asian Access is an interdenominational evangelical organization that works throughout Asia to identify, develop and release leaders who serve as pastors of growing and reproducing churches.
