BENEVOLENCE ASSISTANCE

Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone - especially to those in the family of faith. - Galatians 6:10

The purpose of Benevolence is to provide financial aid to an individual or family who has an urgent need. Benevolence may not be applicable for cases which need long-term financial support. Davis Ministry Group has the right to adjust or decline an applicant's request and may consider providing assistance other than monetary help. Applicants do not need to be members of the Davis Ministry Group to apply for benevolence.
