Global Impact Fund for Transformation
Hershey Free Church (HFC) aims to join with different works and partners in God’s ongoing, redemptive mission. Beyond the Walls gives leadership and focus to the local and global outreach of Hershey Free Church. The leadership team of Beyond the Walls seeks to engage all community members of HFC in the mission of Christ both locally and globally. One of these tools and opportunities for outreach is the Global Impact Fund for Transformation (GIFT).
GIFT (formerly the Global Ministry Project Fund) was established to help fund specific and strategic ministry initiatives in cross-cultural contexts around the world. We specifically seek to use these funds to help the global workers with whom we partner. The funds are intended to help with …
- One time capital projects for our foreign, or cross-cultural, missionary family;
- Theological education and extension/Bible education for nationals;
- Responding rapidly to opportunities.
A GIFT Council and the Beyond the Walls Leadership Team review and approve GIFT Projects.
The breadth of the projects that we have been able to partner in is astounding! In 2017-18, we were able to distribute over $100,000 between our partners and our missionaries’ projects. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to GIFT—your giving has involved you in projects around the world! The projects listed below are a few of the funded projects.
