TOLEDO, Ohio – At a check presentation on Tuesday, September 25, The Tabernacle Church announced a $50,000 gift to their Hope for the Heart of the City Campaign. The gift was made via Credit Adjustments, Inc., an industry leader in receivables management headquartered in Defiance, Ohio.
The donation will support a project designed to renew and revitalize the city of Toledo. The Tabernacle is conducting a five-year, $3 million campaign to fund the expansion and outreach of the church. This Hope for the Heart of a City initiative embodies traditions of compassion and collaboration with the purpose of serving not only Toledo, but also surrounding communities for years to come.
"This generous gift from Credit Adjustment, Inc. is a tremendous catalyst as it brings us one step closer to expanding our efforts in helping individuals, families and neighborhoods find hope through intentional acts of care, compassion and concern,” said Pastor Calvin Sweeney. “We believe that through strategic partnerships like this, in addition to the mobilization of engaged individuals, our city can thrive and become a model for other cites to follow."
Working with local faith and community leaders, The Tabernacle is boldly pursuing a vision that will move the church from one campus to six in the next five years, and God willing, mobilize a group of 3,000 to 4,000 individuals committed to compassionately serving the city over the next 10 years. This will allow the church to expand existing programs, start new initiatives, engage in new neighborhoods and use this synergy to help transform Toledo.
"We want to partner with organizations that are making sustainable changes in our community,” said Michael Osborne, chairman of the board at Credit Adjustments, Inc. “The Tabernacle has shown that they can form effective partnerships with businesses, government entities, non-profits and other faith-based organizations. This initial gift will help them continue their efforts to bring hope and invest in the lives of both children and adults in the Toledo-area.”
Support from organizations like Credit Adjustments, Inc., will help achieve The Tabernacle’s vision to grow and become one of the positive, vibrant and shining examples of what faith-based change and leadership can bring to a community ... and restore Hope for the Heart of a City.
The Tabernacle is a vibrant and growing multicultural church located in the heart of Toledo, Ohio. The vision of the church is individual and community transformation through consistent and intentional acts of care and compassion. Towards that end, the organization partners with businesses, non-profits, and other faith-based organizations to offer a variety of programs that focus on helping and educating individuals in the congregation and in the community.
