Giving Journey

This is going to be a season of transformation for us all as a church and as individuals. We invite you to participate fully—giving it everything you’ve got!

  • Consistent Giver

    A Consistent Giver is someone who decides to give on a regular basis. Often, a consistent giver makes their gift an online recurring gift, or weekly church offering. The consistent giver is practicing the habit of generosity.

    2 Corinthians 9:6-8

  • Initial Giver

    An Initial Giver is someone who decides to give for the first time in response to God’s Word about giving. This is a person who decides to give something, while trusting God and the church with their gift.

    2 Corinthians 8:7-15

  • Surrendered Giver

    A Surrendered Giver is someone who recognizes Christ’s sacrifice for us and is surrendered to honoring God with 100% of their resources. They give in a way that changes them and their giving is governing their spending. A Surrendered Giver isn’t just concerned with what they ARE giving, but is more concerned with what they’re NOT giving and why. This includes honoring God with resources already entrusted to them like a home or a vehicle.

    Colossians 1:15-18, 22-23

  • Intentional Giver

    An Intentional Giver is someone who is beginning to think about their giving in relation to other things on which they spend their money. They begin asking the question, “Why am I giving more to AT&T than I am giving to God?” This giver makes an intentional choice in comparison to other things they spend their money on. This may also be the point when someone begins to tithe, giving in proportion to their income, a percentage to God.

    Luke 14:28-35

  • Lifetime Giver

    A Lifetime Giver is someone who is thinking about the longer tail of generosity rather than just monthly or annual giving. A Lifetime Giver makes a financial decision considering how it impacts their generosity capacity. They think of what home they buy, what car they purchase, and how much savings they keep, all in relation to their generosity capacity. Often a lifetime giving goal will govern their larger-item purchases like homes and cars. A Lifetime Giver also makes long-term giving commitments.

    1 Timothy 6:6-19
