In order to be faithful to our calling and to maximize the opportunities that God has opened to us, we as a church are stepping out with Daring Faith to secure a permanent home for our church. To do this, we have set a First Step Challenge Goal of $50,000 by July 1 to help us secure the downpayment for one of two buildings we have a lead on.
One year ago, our church stepped out with Daring Faith to begin preparing for the future permanent home that God has for our church. We launched the Daring Faith initiative in May 2016.
Daring Faith is a 36-month initiative to raise the funds necessary to provide a more permanent future home for our church, where we can have an even greater impact in our community and surrounding counties through Sunday worship services, expanded children and student ministry space, mobilizing volunteers, training leaders and serving our community.
And while Daring Faith is a 36-month initiative, we are not waiting 36 months to find a building to call home. I believe the time to move forward is now!
We have a lead on two permanent spaces that we could be in by the start of 2018 (maybe even sooner if it is God’s will).
OPTION #1 is a long-term lease in a shared space with an after-school program that owns the building here in Boca Raton. This building has a gymnasium, plenty of classroom space for Journey Kidz and student ministry, worship service space, some offices and more.
OPTION #2 is the opportunity to own our own building in Boca Raton. We’ve found a beautiful 2-story office building that, with some buildout, would provide great worship service space, great Kidz ministry and student space, offices, training rooms, and more!
Both are great spaces, and with God’s blessing, we could grow, expand our ministries, serve families, serve our community and more in either space. So we are prayerfully moving forward with both. These are exciting times indeed.
As we prayerfully pursue both of these spaces, we know that we need to raise an additional $50,000 between now and July 1 to secure the down payment for one of these buildings.
FIRST STEP CHALLENGE GOAL:
So, Sunday, June 18 – Father’s Day – is going to be Commitment Sunday for what we’re calling the “First Step Challenge Goal” of our Daring Faith initiative.
This will be an opportunity for all of us to give a one-time sacrificial gift to help us meet the $50,000 goal so that we can make a down payment and secure one of these buildings.
LET ME ASK YOU TWO IMPORTANT QUESTIONS:
#1. Will you pray and ask God to reveal what He would have you give to the “First Step Challenge Goal” of the Daring Faith initiative?
Our goal for this first step is $50,000 by July 1, 2017. It will take all of us praying and committing to give sacrificially over and above our normal tithes to hit our goal and help us move forward into the future home that God has for us.
#2. Will you pray with me for our Commitment Day on Sunday, June 18?
This is the day that I will ask you and all of our Journey members, attendees and supporters to bring a one-time sacrificial gift to meet this “First Step Challenge Goal”.
And, if you have not yet made a pledge to the Daring Faith initiative, you will also be able to make a 24-month pledge to help us hit our overall goal of $500,000.
God has done GREAT things through the people of The Journey. And now He is calling us to step forward into our future with Daring Faith.
It’s time to move forward in faith… will you join me?
