About The Gary Wayne Locklear Mission Endowment
God’s Abundance Overflowing in Ministry
Everything. Always. For All Kinds of Good Work. (2 Corinthians 9:8)
God gives us everything we need for ministry.
God is with us at all times and in all places.
For All Kinds of Good Work
God calls us to be ready for yet to be imagined ministry from generation to generation.
The mission of The Gary Wayne Locklear Mission Endowment:
To provide resources as we partner with others for new mission with people in the geographical area of the North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church.
The mission focus will be on emerging needs related to:
- health, wellness, and abundant life
- economic resources for fullness of life
- spiritual vitality found in Jesus Christ.
The Gary Wayne Locklear Mission Endowment intends to invest in the long-term, life-altering ministries that impact the lives of innumerable people in the name of Jesus. We are looking for God-sized dreams of transformation with the most significant impact within the geographical bounds of the NC Conference.
The Gary Wayne Locklear Mission Endowment will promote Biblical justice in accordance with the United Methodist Social Principles. The endowment will ensure resources into perpetuity so that people will experience Jesus Christ and grow in discipleship.
Funds will be invested in mission as directed by the North Carolina Conference Mission Endowment Team or its successors and in collaboration with the Conference Connectional Table executive team.
