Top Ten giving bookletHonoring the 'Top Ten' presbyteries for mission giving in 2009

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is honoring presbyteries big and small across the country for their generous support of Presbyterian mission in 2009

“Top Ten” lists were compiled in four categories: total giving, basic mission support, special offerings, and other appeals. Within each category, the lists are sorted by total giving and by average giving per member. National Capital Presbytery topped the list for total giving, while the Presbytery of Santa Fe capped the list for total giving per member.
