The Church: God's Instrument


Dear Fellow Investors and Friends,

The Church is God’s instrument to reach the lost. That’s why our energies and resources are poured into creating healthy, vibrant, communities of faith in the United States and around the world.” (The Alliance website, U.S. Ministries)

As a supporting ministry of The Alliance, ADF is fully committed to this endeavor. Our primary role is to provide funding for places that help communities of faith carry out their God-given missions. We also strive to help in other ways as opportunities arise at the international, national, district, and local levels.

This help may take a number of forms from working closely with churches experiencing temporary financial problems so they can keep progressing in ministry to helping in times of calamity or natural disaster. It may also take the form of various resources such as free consultations and practical information, or more suitable loan product designs and terms. In addition, ADF assists in various ways with church health and advancement.

Our U.S. Alliance president, John Stumbo, has been expressing his desire for more emphasis on church planting and for the net number of Alliance churches here in the U.S. to grow. A number of initiatives are underway and more are coming. ADF intends to fully support these efforts as part of our mission and vision.

Thank you for supporting the varied work of ADF, The Alliance, and the Church that are so central to God’s plan for reaching the lost.
