Dorothy Allport Network Mission Offering
For over 25 years, Dorothy Allport was a dedicated volunteer serving the member churches of NorthStar Church Network. For 77 years, Dorothy was an active member of First Baptist Church of Alexandria serving in a variety of leadership positions from Pastor Search Committee (3 times!), Secretary to the Senior Pastor, and Clerk for 30 years!
No one exemplified church more than Dorothy Allport, so in 2009, the Network Council of NorthStar Church Network established the annual Dorothy Allport Network Mission Offering. NorthStar is privileged to have a Network Mission Offering honoring this outstanding lady. Dorothy's faithfulness, tireless energy, and gentle spirit were an inspiration to all who knew her.
Each year, the offering goes to support various ministries.
- 2017: $5,311.86 for Dominica Disaster Response after Hurricane Maria ravaged the island. (Additional funds of $46,058 were raised directly for Dominica Disaster Response.)
- 2018: $13,128.02 for NorthStar Mission Center DC to get the center up and running.
- 2019: $20,342.69 for Mission Center DC and Feed My Starving Children.
- 2020: $14,701.16 for Feed My Starving Children.
- 2021: $16,359.68 for Church Planting in Northern Virginia and Washington, DC.
- 2022: $10,583.00 for Church Planting in Northern Virginia and Washington, DC.
In 2023, the Mission Offering will go toward Pastor Sabbatical Scholarships and Regional Connection for Spouses (Pastors' Wives Ministry). Please consider financially contributing to help support these causes.
