What do we mean by SHIFT?
Over the past few years the leadership of our church has been sensing God moving us in a new direction: from addition to multiplication, and from being closed-handed to open-handed. To fully step into this vision will require us to SHIFT our current ministry paradigms. We believe God is calling us to SHIFT the way we think about our ministry in three distinct areas: our families, finances, and facilities.
How will this building project be funded?
This is a vision for Grace Christian Church that will impact our community for years to come. As with any part of our mission, we will rely on the faithful and sacrificial generosity of our church family. We are asking members of Grace to give generously and sacrificially to this campaign over a three year period. Additionally, we anticipate needing to take out a loan to help cover the gap between the pledges and the actual project cost.
How will this giving campaign impact the general budget?
The SHIFT campaign is separate from our general budget. We will continue to operate all of our regular ministries out of the general budget, which will continue to rely on the regular tithes and offerings. We are asking for campaign pledges to be considered above and beyond normal offerings.
Is this project sustainable?
Yes! A solid business plan is being implemented that we believe will make our facility both sustainable and profitable. Our goal is to generate income that can be used to further fund disciple-making and church-planting, and all building plans have this aim in mind.
How will this new facility help us achieve our vision?
By developing an athletic facility, our ministry will SHIFT by providing opportunities for our families to serve and engage with people in our community; by maximizing the stewardship of our facilities so that they are used seven days a week; and by generating alternative revenue streams so that we can be more open-handed and generous with our finances.
