THE JOURNEY'S TRANSFORMED SPECIAL OFFERING
Begins Now and Continues Through Jan. 31, 2017
The TRANSFORMED Special Offering is a call to sacrificial giving with a goal of $26,000 for three important ministry and missions areas:
TRANSFORMING our world through supporting national and international missionaries.
TRANSFORMING our church through completing the Worship Center at our new permanent building.
TRANSFORMING our city through evangelism and community ministry.
THE PURPOSES OF THIS OFFERING
TRANSFORMING OUR WORLD THROUGH SUPPORTING NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL MISSIONARIES
Equipping missionaries who are sharing Christ and starting new churches in the U.S. and Canada.
We are a church that supports missions. This focus will continue through our TRANSFORMED Special Offering, as we have a great opportunity to join other mission-minded churches in supporting 5,600+ missionaries in the U.S. and Canada, many of whom are starting churches just like The Journey in various languages and in some of the most unchurched areas in North America.
Through this Special Offering we will also support 4,200+ missionaries around the globe who are reaching out to every identified people group, especially those in highly unchurched countries. These missionaries are serving in some of the world’s most important (and dangerous) mission fields. With our support, and the support of other like-minded churches, we can literally make a difference around the world as new churches are established and people come to know Christ.
In Matthew 28:19-20 Jesus gave us a mission:
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the ends of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20
Through the TRANSFORMED Special Offering we will be able to fulfill the Great Commission in 2018.
TRANSFORMING OUR CHURCH THROUGH
COMPLETING THE WORSHIP CENTER AT OUR
NEW PERMANENT BUILDING
Establishing a home for our church where we can develop leaders and disciples.
In April 2016, we committed ourselves as a church to the dream of owning a permanent building in Boca Raton for our church to call home. Just 18 months later, that dream is now coming true, as we recently closed on a 16,000-square-foot, two-story office building at 2200 NW Boca Raton Blvd., in the heart of Boca Raton.
But we still have work to do, and your giving to the TRANSFORMED Special Offering will help us turn this office building into a church home where we can develop leaders and disciples.
Renovations to the new building are beginning, and for the first time in the history of our church, we are creating our own worship space – without the limitations of when or where we can meet.
While it’s not easy, quick, or cheap to transform an office building into a church, your giving to the TRANSFORMED Special Offering will help us create a worship space where thousands will come to Christ in the years to come. This is an investment, not in a building, but in changing lives for eternity!
Providing a permanent ministry center where we can reach out to serve our community.
One of the greatest challenges our church has faced in the last six years is being visible for only a few hours on Sunday in rented facilities. With the opening of our new building, we will now have a 24/7 presence in our community. While we know that the church is not a building (it’s the people), for those in our community that we want to reach and serve, completing this new space provides a sense of stability, presence, and opportunity that will extend our impact far beyond Sunday.
When you give to the TRANSFORMED Special Offering, you are helping provide a ministry center that will impact our community for years to come.
TRANSFORMING OUR CITY THROUGH EVANGELISM AND COMMUNITY MINISTRY
Sharing God’s love through ongoing evangelism efforts in our community.
A recent study from the Barna Research Group showed that our community leads the nation in the percentage of people who have never been to church, and that South Florida is one of the most “unchurched” areas of the country. In fact, 83% of the 420,000 people who live within seven miles of our church do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ. There are literally thousands of people within our sphere of influence who desperately need the hope and saving power of Jesus in their lives.
The TRANSFORMED Special Offering will help expand our evangelism efforts here in South Florida, including our Servant Evangelism efforts and other creative outreaches, so that we can continue to reach our community with the love of Jesus.
One of the areas of our community that we most want to reach are the students at FAU. With the opening of our new building in Spring 2018, we will be within walking distance of thousands of students who attend FAU. We have piloted some early outreach efforts on campus this fall, and through your giving to the Special Offering we will be able to expand those efforts and help reach college students for Christ.
We are a church that serves the “least of these.” Through the TRANSFORMED special offering we will expand our partnership with local organizations that are meeting the physical and spiritual needs of those in our community.
One of those partners is Boca Helping Hands, which provides meals, medical care, job training and placement, backpack programs for children in need, and more right here in our community. As a church, we can make a difference in their lives through our serving and giving.
