In 2017 North Terrace Church of Christ became our sponsoring church. Previously with a missions organisation called South Pacific Christian Fellowship, we were given the option to become officially sponsored by a supporting church rather than incurring costly administrative fees when SPCF merged with another larger organisation. Graciously, Whitney's home church has answered the call.
North Terrace, a restoration movement Christian Church, is located in Zanesville, OH, USA. They receive our funds, transfer them to our non-profit in New Zealand, provide us with financial oversight and accountability, and provide tax-deductible donation receipts to all who donate to us without charging any fees. While we remain in good standing with SPCF and intend to collaborate with them in our church planting endeavours, we are now technically under the NTCOC umbrella regarding our funding. This is why donations now need to be made in the name of NTCOC but checks are still sent to Alison, our forwarding agent. North Terrace is a wonderful, faithful church without whom we could not do what we do as church planters in New Zealand.
