The Good News Fund

A community of Jesus Christ, empowered by the Spirit, experiencing and extending God’s love and grace

What is the Good News Fund?

The Good News Fund is a four-year plan that enables us to provide support for our vision of extending God’s love and grace.

"In the last year the Good News Fund has helped more than 100 asylum seekers find a place in a new land. College Mennonite Church has become their community."
