UNITED STEWARDSHIP FUND: Incremental Reduction over Five Years

Whereas, The economic realities of the day are requiring local churches and districts to regularly examine their operational budgets for savings and make reductions in staffing and programs;

Whereas, The denominational assessment for USF-EIF has remained unchanged despite the streamlining of the hierarchical structure; and

Whereas, shared sacrifice promotes a better sense of denominational unity;

Resolved, The rate of USF shall be reduced by one quarter of a percent from 2.75 to 2.50 in order to balance the aforementioned realities. The reduction shall take place over a five year period with .05 of a percent being deducted each year beginning with the 2016-2017 fiscal year, resulting in a denominational USF-EIF assessment of 5.75%.
