Mosaix' 3rd National Multiethnic Church Conference at NorthWood Church in Dallas, TX.
In honor of a lifetime of faithful, courageous, and sacrificial service to Jesus Christ, to His bride, the Church, and to countless individuals, asking nothing in return, Mosaix is thrilled to announce and chair a fund raising effort on behalf of Dr. John M. Perkins, his dear wife, Vera Mae, and the Perkins Foundation in Jackson, MS.
• What? The goal is to raise $150,000 by the summer of 2017.
UPDATE -> Prior to Mosaix 2016, we had raised $80,000. An additional $35,000 was received via pledge at the conference!
• When? By December 31, 2016.
• Why? For nearly 56 years, Dr. Perkins has given his life away to others in service of the kingdom. At 85
years of age, he
continues to do so asking nothing in return. In fact, he both lives and loves to serve. Nevertheless, in this final season of his
life, he deserves to be free from financial stress and worry where his own family is concerned, as well as the legacy of his
• Who? Individuals, pastors and ministry leaders, educators and researchers, colleges, universities
and seminaries, for profit
and non profit organizations, denominations, neighbors and entire communities, alike, owe a debt of gratitude to this living
legend and prophet of God. Indeed, everyone - those seeking to advance healthy multi-ethnic and economically diverse
churches, Christian community development, biblical/social justice, and spiritual and economic hope to the poor,
marginalized, and disenfranchised, etc. have not only benefitted from his pioneering efforts, but today stand upon his
shoulders. We owe him a debt of gratitude and generosity in this twilight season of his life. The Bible says, "For where your
treasure is, there your heart will be also."
In this moment of need and request, let us demonstrate in practical, financial terms,
our appreciation, heart and love for Dr. Perkins for a life well lived, for a job well done!
