Our Elders

The Council of Elders is a grounding force for Franklinton Center at Bricks.

They serve as a resource to us by offering:

  • Wisdom and knowledge;
  • Historical memory;
  • Financial support and assistance in fund-raising;
  • Networking and relationship building;
  • Personal commitment of time, talent and treasure.

We define Elder using the following two categories:

  • Age: 50 years of age or older with a commitment to advance the mission of Franklinton Center at Bricks, Inc.; and
  • Relationship: Previous Board members and staff of FCAB, attendance at a camp, retreat, work camp, or event held at FCAB.

Our elders sign a Covenant of Support pledging:

  • A $240 personal yearly membership gift (membership gift is tax deductible).
  • To identify and secure 50 churches that will place FCAB in the budgets for at least $1,000 a year.
  • To support the “Brick by Brick” campaign by building a walkway around the campus in memory and honor of those whose feet have touched the soil making it a sacred, historic, and life giving space.  The requested donation for each BRICK is $100.

* Any contributions that are submitted for Council of Elders should say Council of Elders in the memo line! The Brick by Brick checks should say Brick by Brick.
