FAST members heading up financial obligations, budget, and planning
Latest Activity: Jul 14, 2015
This group does not have any discussions yet.
I cannot attend most Tuesday meetings because of my commitment to Connor and karate.
I love what FAST has become and the direction it is going in. The discussions and disagreements about money, spending, mission statements , committees etc are painful but useful. The disagreements and strong feelings along with God lead will help us to clarify our goals and focus.
Let me tell you what FAST is to me. Fast is a group of men, who love God and have a desire to grow in Christ and help other men do the same. Fast does this through a focus on the outdoors, fishing, hunting, shooting etc. By spending time with each other in studies, weekend events (BBB, GGG, Kicking Bear etc), serving (BBQ) and mission trips we have the time to disciple, encourage, correct and build each other up.
Fast uses the hook of the outdoors to be able to draw men into relationship with each other. We are not about kids, but offering kid events brings fathers. We are not about feeding the poor, but the serving opportunity brings men together to spend time with each other serving. I am in favor of spending money on any activities/charities that will bring FAST member together for extended periods of time and attract other men looking for community.
There are lots of worthy places to send money. But I do not think we are called to do that. I believe we are called to spend the money when it brings our members into relationship with other men. I am also not afraid to let money sit in our account until those occasions arise.
My two cents:
Anything over $200 goes to a vote at the next General Meeting. That's what was agreed on almost 2 years ago. Present the request to the group at the next meeting.
As far as mission trips, that has already been discussed and ratified. As Paul says, "moving on".
Guys, I'm being contacted by others at KCC about the possibility of donations for thier group or mission trip (KCC but non FAST people). These requests will most likey only increase. We need to figure out how to respond to these requests. This is all good and an answer to prayer about how God wants us to use these funds but we do have a budget and not all requests can be honored right? As of now I have 2 requests for funds. No specific amount is being requested.
