As the Berlin Wall began its fall in November of 1989, the hope of being able sharing Jesus beyond The Wall became a reality. Prestoncrest was one of many churches to answer the call of providing one-time financial support to kick off these new opportunities. In 1990, Prestoncrest held a special giving event to provide for these mission efforts.
In the years that followed, these one-time requests continued to come in from different missionaries around the world. To define this new opportunity to support special requests, 5th Sundays became the designated days for those collections to happen. What once began as an effort to evangelize after The Wall fell, has developed into a way to support special requests from the mission field in a profound way.
Today at Prestoncrest, that program is known as WorldCare.
The WorldCare ministry at Prestoncrest supports a variety of good works going on around the world with these one-time funds. Each time a month has 5 Sundays, a collection is taken up on the last Sunday. Funds donated go toward different one-time needs each time, and each recipient is researched and selected by our elders.
