From Near Death to Gospel Impact
In 2013, the leadership of Valleyview Alliance Church in Vestal, New York, began fervently praying for God to show them a way they could be used more effectively to do Kingdom ministry within their own community. Their desire was to begin a non-traditional ministry that would meet off-campus from the church and stretch their faith as a congregation. They were tired of being comfortable and complacent.
Interest Rates: What's An ADF Investor To Do?
Posted by Larry McCooey on August 11, 2017
We have been hearing for a very long time that interest rates will be rising. As you know, rates are now on the move. The Fed Funds rate, which applies to funds that banks lend to and borrow from each other through the Federal Reserve, has been raised to a target level of 1%-1.25%. This is the rate we normally hear about when the “Fed” raises or lowers rates.
Protect Your Staff

Trust comes easily as you serve with others in ministry. They are family — your brothers and sisters in Christ. But by placing too much trust, by neglecting common-sense accountability structures, you may create an atmosphere of temptation for them. One pastor whom I greatly admire learned this lesson the hard way. He is not the first pastor to do so and, unfortunately, he will not be the last. I asked him to write a guest blog about his story hoping that our readers will take action to protect their staffs. This is a great pastor from a dynamic church. If it could happen to him, it could happen to anybody. He is a wise man. Please take his warning to heart and make every effort to protect your own people from this temptation.

The beneficiary (or beneficiaries) you name will receive the funds remaining in your IRA or plan after you die, so you should certainly consider your loved ones' future needs. However, choosing the right beneficiary is often more complicated than that.
