Key COR Value:
COR Congregations are committed to investing financially in senior youth and young adult ministry.

COR Value Summary:
COR congregations financially support senior youth and young adult ministry by budgeting a set amount per person in this age group. This amount should reflect the size of this group relative to the rest of the church body and may be a constant percentage of the budget or a set amount for each senior youth and young adult.
