The W.H.E.E.L (Welfare, Health, Education, Empowerment and Local Community) Fund is organized by the Central Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists to help meet the high level of demand for welfare and other local church needs.
Over the years, the Conference and local churches have attempted to meet requests relating to welfare, education and health using an ad hoc approach. These requests usually go beyond what the Covenant Offering is able to do.
W.H.E.E.L is, therefore, established to address these needs in a more organized manner by tapping into the ‘gift-giving’ source of income and taking advantage of the combined effort of each member of the church.
As such, besides the tithe and covenant offering contributions, the Conference is asking each member to make a small, but consistent contribution towards the W.H.E.E.L fund on either a weekly or monthly basis.
