UCG took a huge financial hit when COGWA formed. UCG still is struggling to get back into a solid financial situation. Despite having 9,000 people attend their Feast this year, they still did not bring in everything they need in tithes and offerings.
Kubik sent this out to the ministers:
We are seriously trying to reduce our financial outgo in Ministerial Services and instituted a number of cost reductions. The conference following this one was to be in the Los Angeles area. We have postponed this conference until after the one near Portland which is scheduled for April 21-23, 2013. Also, we have carved out another area in the Mountain states for an eighth conference. It is cost-prohibitive to fly these elders and wives to the West Coast. The entire cycle for face to face conferences will then be approximately two years.Also, we have greatly curtailed all travel under the supervision of MMS. I was planning a major international trip in January and canceled it. I have asked all our senior pastors to do the same until our expenditures and revenue come into balance. In the meantime, we are asking our senior pastors who care for churches in the United States and overseas to use Skype, DVDs, and other communication means to stay in contact with their distant congregations.
