The MDPC Legacy Gift Funds

This great church is built on a legacy of prayer, mission, and generosity. Those who came before us modeled how to build and maintain a thriving ministry to our church, our community, our city,
and around the globe. As a Legacy Giver, you become a key part of the continuing mission of MDPC that’s building tomorrow’s disciples, starting today.

The purpose of Legacy Giving is twofold: 1) to insure the future of MDPC; and 2) to enhance MDPC ministries now.

A common misconception of Legacy Giving is that it’s only made through your will or estate. Though estate bequests are an important part of any Legacy program, giving today to initiatives about which you are passionate means you get to see the effects of your gift!You can enhance the ministries and missions of MDPC by making financial resources available for special projects and initiatives over and above the annual budget and to insure the future of MDPC. Listed below are a few ways that those gifts may be facilitated:
