Council of Seventy
The Council of Seventy is an intentional network of seventy elders who each contribute to build a future for this mission. Each member gives or finds € 1200 (or $ 1500) each year for three years. Some are individual contributors, others represent a team of friends, a region, or a partner church. The funding provides for the increase of staff. Besides their financial contribution they use - where and when possible- their expertise in an advisory capacity and are considered the guardians of the future of this mission.
At the start of 2015 we have identified twelve Council of Seventy members, six on the US side and six on the Euorpean side. Our goal is to increase this number to 30 before the end of 2015 and to 70 by the end of 2016 enabling us to hire the needed staff to move us into the future.
