online giving

Online support for the Puentes family and Ascent Christian Church...

As many of you know Fina and I have left our ministry at LifeBridge Christian Church in Longmont, CO, and are moving to Prineville, OR. We are taking on a new ministry at Ascent Christian Church—in partnership with the OCEF, as the lead pastor of the church, beginning in January 2014. Ascent Christian Church is a church plant in Central Oregon. It was planted by OCEF (Oregon Christian Evangelistic Fellowship: about five years ago, but ran into some difficult times and is going through some changes.

You may also be aware of the fact that Fina and I will have to raise a portion of our salary. Our commitment to the church is to raise support for two years (That’s $1800 a month for two years—a total of $43,200).

To help us meet this goal, a very good friend who is savvy in the website making business (She does it professionally), donated her time and constructed a website for Ascent Christian Church...

The church website is still being developed. However, online giving is available:  (Be sure to check the box - I would like to designate this donation to a specific fund AND select: "Help Pastor Joe Puentes & Family").
