Rev. Elder Troy Perry will be 80 years old and Rev. Elder Dr. Nancy Wilson will turn 70 years this month! At their joint and inspired suggestion, MCC is marking these significant birthdays by creating a lasting legacy that will honor all that Troy and Nancy have given so far and equip MCC to develop and grow its ministry now and in the future.
Troy and Nancy’s combined age will be 150 after these birthdays. We are suggesting that people give in amounts that equal their combined years ($150, $1,500, $15,000 etc) to reach our campaign goal of $150,000.
In discussion with Troy and Nancy, we have chosen two projects to support with donations from this “Still Giving” birthday appeal. The first US $100,000 of the funds raised will be used to establish the first-ever MCC endowment fund. The interest from this fund will provide income to support MCC’s life changing ministry for future generations. This is really creating something significant for MCC’s future, so that we can continue to bring good news of God’s inclusive love and justice to the world. Every person who gives a gift to the “Still Giving” campaign will be acknowledged as one of the founders of this endowment fund.
The additional US $50,000 will be used to focus on immediate actions for racial justice, one of the most pressing social justice issues around the world and within MCC. We will use these funds right away to provide anti-racism training for staff and MCC leadership and to take practical steps to create organisational change, so MCC can be the racially equitable, inclusive and diverse church we know that God is calling us to be. This will include supporting the work of the Commission on Pathways to Healing and Reconciliation, commissioned by MCC General Conference 2019.
