Financial Report for April 2014

The tables below show our overall financial condition as of the end of April 2014. How blessed we are to have a wonderful base of support among God's people who recognize the need for solid biblical perspectives in the ongoing advance of the Church. We are especially grateful for an $80,000 partial pledge fulfillment in April by a partnering business to help pay down our mortgage (included in "Other Income" in the table below), and for a $50,000 individual gift for our general needs. Unrestricted general fund donations in April of $90,769 from churches and individuals were $29,296 above the $61,473 April budget for these types of unrestricted contributions. Expenses of $85,663 were $2,339 below the $88,002 budgeted for expenses. 

As we are now in the final two months of our fiscal year (ending June 30), we are looking to God and His people to supply what is needed to see us through the summer months when charitable giving often takes a holiday. Your gift during this quarter would be greatly appreciated. 

Remember, gifts to GPTS are tax-deductible and may include cash, securities, property or a variety of planned giving instruments. See here for information about planning your last will and testament with the Kingdom of God in mind.
