Payment Methods

When giving to St. John's, you have the choice to give to the following:

ST. JOHN’S MINISTRIES – This is our general operating fund which is approved each year at our annual vestry meeting. Our ministry budget is comprised of the following.
  Salaries of our staff, both ministry and administrative
  Program expenses = resource books, bible studies, retreats, children’s ministry supplies, parish family events, parish training days, pastoral care, and music.
  Administration expenses such as printing, insurance, and legal.
  Facilities expenses related to our leasing agreements.
  Missions which is 10% of average annual giving for the past three years.
  Episcopal Oversight which is a gift to our diocese the Anglican Network in Canada (ANiC) and expenses associated with our involvement with them.
  Outreach, this portion of our budget is directed towards church planting and training the next generation of ordained and lay leaders.
     
CAPITAL – The capital fund is used for facility and equipment investments (i.e. not rent but enduring investments in facility ownership or capital maintenance of owned assets) and equipment that has a life of longer than 3 years.
   
TRANSITION – This is a temporary fund that has been set up to enable gifts to be specified for the transition costs incurred by having to leave our church home facilities and resources. The transition has been an $100,000 expense beyond our operating budget.
   
SPECIFIC MISSIONS TRIP – Each year St. John’s has short term missions trips to encourage, serve, and grow our relationship with our mission partners. The funding for these trips comes from three places, missions operating budget, volunteers that are going on the trip, and gifts raised through specific gifts.
     

NOTE: All donations are tax deductible. Tax receipts are generated and sent out at the end of the year.
