The Visionaries

Through the ministry of the Visionaries (also known as Planned Giving), everyone has an opportunity to ensure that our most sacred values, commitments and ministries are part of a legacy that we leave behind for future generations. By participating we “plant a tree under which we’ll never sit.”

All gifts benefit the ministry of your choice. These include Outreach, Worship, (including music), Christian Education, and Maintenance (including building and grounds). Gifts also may be designated “Unrestricted.”

Typically planned gifts are made through: a bequest in a will; a capital gift including stocks, bonds or cash; a gift of life insurance; more complicated gifts including life estates, charitable gift annuities, life income gifts and other options.

Contact us today to learn more about how you can ensure that your love for St. John’s can be shared with future generations, or to serve on the Visionaries Committee.
