Announcement

Friends and interested observers,

VP Ministries has entered into a new agreement with our CEO John Buskey.  He will be reducing his time with the ministry and adding the responsibilities of pastoring the Manlius First Baptist Church.

The purpose of this agreement is multifaceted, but boils down to John’s desire, supported by the board, to reinvest some of our budget from his salary into infrastructure and program improvements. Including adding staff, building upgrades and investing in our future.  At the same time, he will be assisting the Manlius church to grow in their ministries and outreach into the community.

While this partnership was originally conceived as a way to trim our budgets, we finished the year near even, albeit in the red. The Board and John made the decision and commitment not to step backwards, rather to move forward and reinvest significant dollars into the ministry of introducing people to Christ, equipping them to grow spiritually and to minister to their world.

This is an exciting decision for us as we believe it will propel us into a solid future.  We still face challenges to meet our budget. We still need to foster more donors to keep up with the ever increasing cost of doing excellent ministries.  We treasure and value your support. We invite questions and comments.

Your Partners in Christ,

John R Buskey            Pat Robinson

CEO                            VP Ministries Board Chair

Giving Tuesday

On this “giving Tuesday, ” I am thinking about fishing. I remember fishing as a child. There were places we would go that seemed loaded with perch or bull-heads. Those were fun trips. Then, there were days when nothing seemed to bite. Looking back I realized it wasn’t about the fish biting or not, it was about the relationship and time spent with my family and friends. It’s like that when it comes to funding this ministry. The money is important BUT the real treasure is in the relationships forged between the people at camp and the one with Christ. While admittedly it’s more exciting to be making the catch, I will never sacrifice the presence of the relationships built.

It is important to finance the ministry so we can continue to help others build relationships face to face.  We also build relationships with Christ so we can grow in our faith.
