Partnership Contributions and ABC Credit

Process for Making Partnership Contributions

It is hoped that each partner church will contribute --

1. An initial gift of $250 to $1,000 to the national Churches Supporting Churches organization. That gift can be made out to CSC and mailed to:
c/o Christian Unity Baptist Church
1700 Conti St
New Orleans, LA 70112-3606

These gifts support the overall work of CSC.


2. A monthly gift of $100 to support your partner church. Pastor Boutté is using these funds to rebuild a ministry to youth in his neighborhood. He is doing so creatively and imaginatively -- and he does not limit his efforts to young people within the walls of the church.

Pastor Boutté prefers that these gifts come through the BPFNA. You can send your support monthly or quarterly -- or you can prepay for the year. The BPFNA will collect the support and send it in monthly installments to St John Baptist Church.

Make your check payable to BPFNA and in the memo write Monthly Support for St John Baptist Church.

You may use this address:
Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America
4800 Wedgewood Drive
Charlotte, NC 28210

If you prefer to send your support directly to the church, contact LeDayne McLeese Polaski ( who will send you the address.

It would be most helpful to send a note saying something like -- "These funds represent one quarter of our yearly support for St John Baptist Church" or "This check for $1,200 is one full year of support for St John Baptist Church."

3. If you ever choose to send a gift beyond your monthly support, please send a note along clearly stating how you wish it to be directed.

Marcus Pomeroy’s note about ABC mission credit for contributions:

ABCUSA will include CSC funds as part of the monthly reporting from churches. This means that a local ABC congregation can send their contributions with their other mission giving and receive "credit" for their CSC gift as part of their ABC mission giving.
