The big MIRACLE goal is to raise $75,000 over the next year to keep moving the Sent Vision forward. This is a vision that is so big we can’t do it on our own. We can only do it with God’s help!
On December 2nd, 2018 we humbly asked people to make a One-Year giving commitment to the SENT vision over and above current regular giving. We raised $80,000 in those commitments.
Here's some other details and info...
While we can’t fully predict the construction market in the future we expect the building cost to be about $2,000,000 with some additional costs for furnishings, architectural costs, etc.
$2,000,000 - Expected Building Cost
Therefore, our overall SENT goal is to raise $1,000,000 before we re-apply for the John C Lasko Grant, which would potentially fund the other half of the build cost, or take on the remaining million dollars in a mortgage.
$1,000,000 - Total SENT Goal
We currently have about $230,000 in hand. At our current size as a church we would not be able to afford a mortgage that large. However, if God continues to bless us with growth, now that we have two services, that can change things towards more growth and possibilities. We're all in this together and this is a Valley initiative and project, not just the staff and leaders. We all set the tone and move the vision forward with our invites and generosity as God keeps growing our church community.
$230,000 - Current cash in hand in our building fund
The Lead Team is also exploring other options for fundraising. Other grants, loans, gifts from our family and friends outside of the church, etc. We know and believe that God is sending us forward to create a launching pad, and permanent home, for others to be sent! If you know someone in your friends and family circle who believes in this vision and might consider being an "angel investor" and come alongside of us with a major gift please let us know.
We’ve included a sample commitment card and giving chart below that you can begin praying over. The giving chart that gives you a snapshot of the number and dollar amounts needed to break through the miracle. This is based on an estimate of how many giving units we have in our church and would far exceed the goal of $75,000. Our hope is that it will challenge you and inspire you as you pray about how you are being sent to build the Kingdom of God.
