This is one of the major initiatives of New Hope. MGU stands for Missions Going Up. Every year New Hope is increasing in mission serving and giving. DGD stands for Debt Going Down. New Hope has an ever decreasing mortgage that will be eliminated by 2020. New Hope is not waiting to be active in missions and increase in missions until 2020. The dream and goal is that Missions Going Up will go up and up and up as the Debt Going Down goes down and away.
