Never The Same

We are currently on a 2-year generosity journey called Never The Same. Through commitments to generosity from people just like you we are funding the growth of Mission Church here in the 10!

The ABC’s

We think giving at Mission should be as easy as knowing your abc's. Well, thats just what we did.

Assess: Where is your giving at currently? Does it reflect your priorities?

Believe: Accept what God is putting on your heart.

Commit: Start your giving plan and participate in what God is doing.

 

Why Mission?

That is a great (and fair) question for you to ask!  Here are the reasons we believe to be most true of giving at Mission:

We are investors, not tax payers.
Giving at Mission makes you a co-investor in this crazy God given dream we have of redefining church in The 10. We don’t collect dues. We collect investments in the advancement of the kingdom of God in The 10.

We believe that God already provided generously to us; therefore, we honor God by giving back a fraction of what He has provided to us so that His kingdom may advance. 
James 1:17 states: “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”

We believe that giving is what God wants for us.
Time after time again in the Bible, God reminds His people that He is aware that our hearts are tied to our wallets. Unfortunately, we are all busted! Fortunately for us, however, God’s plan is to grow us closer to Him and in faith as we increasingly trust and surrender our possessions to Him.  

Luke 6:38 has this to say: “give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”  

Proverbs 11: 24-25 further states: “One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.

Who Gives?

That is another great question! Here is how we see things:

We believe that all Christians that attend Mission regularly are called to give generously in furthering the vision of our church. A solid financial footing is critical to reaching our church’s full potential in the 10. In addition, we welcome all those that do not attend Mission but wish to further support our vision to give.

Those that are still exploring Christianity, those that are still checking out Mission, and all visitors are absolutely welcome to, but not expected to, contribute financially at Mission.

 

What Do I Give?

The question of “Ok, so what am I supposed to give?” is probably the most common question we receive when it comes to giving. It is also a completely fair and understandable question. Therefore, we have set out to provide simple yet profound direction in this regard.   

Through our research we believe that Pastor Andy Stanley’s teaching on giving has 4 core principals that provide great guidance on how Christians should approach giving. These principals are referred to as the “4 P’s” that are listed below…

 

Priority
Give first. Save second. Live on the rest. This means pay God first. Make giving the #1 priority in your budget every month. This can be simplified greatly by setting up a giving schedule on-line.

Percentage
Pick a percentage of your income that you will prioritize to God each month and give it consistently.

Progressive
As you continue to build trust in God that your needs will be provided for, continue to challenge the percentage of your income you are prioritizing for God. We believe that this is a catalyst for growth in faith and suggest that you do this at least annually.

Prompted
This means that we should be prepared to give above and beyond our normal prioritized giving when prompted by the Holy Spirit.

 

The follow-up question we naturally then receive is, “Ok, but what percentage of my income am I to prioritize?” This is also a fair question.

Biblical scripture on tithing teaches us 10% as a target. We suggest that you begin there to gauge your readiness, pray and ask God for wisdom. If that is too daunting of a starting point, we suggest that you first prioritize at a lower percentage and progress as you continue to gain comfort in God’s provision. If that is not a daunting starting point, we suggest that you follow the Holy Spirit’s prompting for a good starting point. The bottom line is start somewhere and commit to having a progressive mindset on giving.

One of the questions we challenge our people with is this: “If everyone at Mission gave the percentage that you gave, would this increase our church’s impact or decrease our church’s impact?”
