This year’s special offering is going to support a deeply significant, potentially life-changing mission experience for young adults, 19-25 years of age.
The QuadW Missional Internship is an eight-week paid summer internship established in honor of Willie Tichenor, who lost his battle with cancer at the age of 19. Before passing, Willie was asked what he would want done with what would have been his trust. He asked that his family support cancer research so that others might have options he did not.

Congregations and individuals should send their contribution to this year's offering payable to North Alabama AC Offering or just North Alabama Conference and put AC 2020 Offering in the memo line. Mail checks to:
