Philippians Fund is an emergency reserve fund, which is spent where needed most, whether in US or Asia. In other words, it seeks solely to provide funds to churches, workers or projects within Serving Alongside International Ministries.
The name for the fund comes from the Philippians’ generosity to Paul specifically highlighted in Philippians 4:14-20. This passage highlights the important relationship Paul had with the church in Philippi as a mission partner. They have sent him aid and in return Paul thanks them for supporting him in his work along with his promise of a divine accounting for their generosity. This relationship highlights what we aspire to do with our fund in the mutual blessing that comes from giving to the work that God is doing in our churches as well as the account that all involved are building up in heaven with God.
