Ambitious plans for 2024

God's heart is for his Son to be honoured by gathering lost sinners headed for his judgment and bringing them into the safety of the kingdom of the Lord Jesus.

In October we held our Annual Congregational Meeting. It's our annual meeting as a church to formally organise our finances so we can advance Christ's kingdom.

At the Congregational Meeting we approved a budget for 2024 which has a deficit of almost $100,000. This budget will allow us to employ a 4 full time ministers, 3 trainees, one admin assistant and one part time serve worker. It's as exciting time!

Over the past 2 years we have seen extraordinary growth as new people become christians and new people move to Dubbo and join DPC. We've been stretched to our limits with resources and staffing. This aims to align our staffing for more sustainable future growth.
Our current staffing expenses include 3 full time ministers, 2 ministry trainees, a part time administrative staff and a part time children’s curriculum writer. For 2024 we are planning to increase this to 4 full time ministers (or equivalent), 3 ministry trainees, a part time administrative staff and a part time Serve ministry worker. The Serve ministry worker will be co-working with the leader of the serve ministry area. The extra trainee is part of our plan to be raising more future gospel workers.

In order for this  to become a reality we are budgeting for in increase in giving of 10% for the next 5 years. This will require each current member of DPC to consider their capacity to give. We will be using accumulated savings in the mean time and God willing we will be able to break even by 2028.  We would love it to be sooner!

Here are details on how to give financially to DPC.
