What are Apportionments?

What are apportionments and why do we pay them? 

Apportionments are an expense The Well incurs per member from the Minnesota Annual Conference.

For 2021, the annual apportionment expense per member is $150. ($12.50/month)

A main way the ministries of the church are supported is through apportioned funds, a method of giving that proportionally allocates the global and Minnesota church budgets to local congregations. Each year, every local church is assigned “a portion meant for others.” Together, we accomplish what no single church, district, or annual conference ever could do alone. In this way, each individual, family, and congregation contributes to the church’s work. We combine our prayers, presence, gifts, and service to make a significant difference in the lives of God’s people. Apportionments started with John Wesley for just this reason.
