Phil.4:17b … I seek the fruit which increases to your account.
2 Cor.9:6-7 But take note of this: He who sows sparingly shall also sparingly reap; and he who sows with blessings shall also with blessings reap; Each one as he has purposed in his heart, not out of sorrow or out of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver.

NorCal Work Fund (Sep. 2016 / May 2017)
|May 2017 update: our target for 2017 is 350K.
(Excerpt of the letter to the churches)
At this time, we will focus on the one-time goal of reaching $250,000 by the end of 2016. Then, starting in 2017, we would like to establish a more consistent ongoing support by monthly (or regular) pledging by churches and individual saints.
We trust that in opening this fund to the saints and the churches, the Lord will touch many saints “to support such ones that we may become fellow workers in the truth” (3 John 8).
To support the full-time serving ones in a new situation where local support is inadequate. Examples: workers at Sonoma State, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Chico, etc.
The Fund will be overseen by a group of mature serving brothers … All disbursements are to be considered under much prayer and fellowship, and agreed upon by unanimous decision.
Name of the account: NorCal Work Fund, to be handled practically as a special account opened under the auspices of the church in Berkeley. All disbursements are to come from the church in Berkeley special account as directed by the overseeing brothers.
Donations are welcome from both individuals and local churches. Pledges of one-time giving or periodic giving are both acceptable.
Electronic donations are now available, and up-to-date information concerning donations can be accessed from the NorCal Work Fund link at http://www.norcalchurches.
