Financial Report for November 2012

The tables below show our financial condition as of the end of November 2012. For the month of November, contributions from churches and individuals were $13,007 above what was budgeted. Expenses were $6,015 below budget. We are grateful for this upturn in our financial picture, but we note that for the first five months of our fiscal year, overall contributions are still $157,020 below budget. Pray with us that our December "Impact 2012" campaign will close this shortfall.

The "IMPACT 2012" Challenge

Please prayerfully consider how you might help the seminary finish 2012 with a solid financial foundation for the new year. We encourage you to read the special message from Dr. Pipa elsewhere in this month's GPTS Online newsletter and consider becoming a regular monthly patron of this seminary. Of the 400 supporters who have sent gifts so far this year, more than a quarter have given on a monthly basis. Our goal for 2013 is to see that percentage at least doubled. Nearly a third of our supporters give on an occasional basis. Some 18 per cent give annually. Others give quarterly, semiannually or have given for special purposes and projects or through foundations. 

Meanwhile, your immediate contribution to our "Impact 2012" year-end financial campaign is vital to our ability to proceed into the new year with assurance. Our goal is to receive $180,000 by the end of this calendar year. Below is a graph showing progress toward that goal.
