The Presbytery established a Home Missions Fund in 2007, to assist the development of new churches within the Presbytery. Where local giving in new churches has not been able to provide adequate income for a minister, or for a student for the ministry who supplies the pulpit, the Home Missions Fund makes available some outside funding administered under the Presbytery’s oversight. The money would normally be used for augmenting the stipend of a minister or of a student who gives regular pulpit supply and pastoral care for a Congregation or Preaching Station. Individuals or Congregations may donate to this fund.

A full statement of the operation of this fund is found in the Procedures for administering the Home Missions Fund, adopted by Presbytery in 2009.

Donations to the Home Missions Fund are tax deductible, and may be made by credit card at your PayPal account to uspresbyterytreasurer@gmail.com. Donations may also be made by a check drawn on a U.S. bank and made payable to “Presbytery of the United States”, to be sent to the Presbytery Treasurer, Mr. John Stam, 116 Pine Ridge Road, Lyman, SC 29365, with a cover letter clearly designating that the gift is for the Home Missions Fund.

The Master’s Trumpet is primarily supported by donations from friends who desire to see the principles of the Scottish Reformation spread in the United States.

Donations to the Presbytery’s fund for the publication of The Master’s Trumpet are tax deductible, and may be made by credit card at your PayPal account, to grangepress@outlook.com. Donations may also be made by a check drawn on a U.S. bank and made payable to “Grange Press”, to be sent to the Grange Press Treasurer, Mr. Brian Rollins, at 5 Blue Mist Drive, Greenville, SC 29611.

The Presbytery created the Ministerial Hardship Fund in 2006, to address emergency circumstances such as a minister or someone in his family having need of medical care at a cost beyond the minister’s ability to cover. The ministers in the Presbytery are commonly unable to afford health insurance, or cannot obtain it because of existing health problems. Requests for help are reviewed by a committee of six office bearers.

A full statement of the operation of this fund is found in the Procedures for administering the Ministerial Hardship Fund, adopted by Presbytery in 2009.

In 2018, the Ministerial Hardship Fund was consolidated with the Support Fund for Full-Time Ministers, which seeks to further enable smaller congregations in the financial support of their ministers.

Donations to the Support Fund for Full-Time Ministers are tax deductible, and may be made by credit card at your PayPal account to uspresbyterytreasurer@gmail.com. Donations may also be made by a check drawn on a U.S. bank and made payable to “Presbytery of the United States”, to be sent to the Presbytery Treasurer, Mr. John Stam, 116 Pine Ridge Road, Lyman, SC 29365, with a cover letter clearly designating that the gift is for the Support Fund for Full-Time Ministers.
