Coast to Coast Giving

We want to praise God that our first few donations have come in!! Thank you Lord!! One of our first monthly gifts of $25 comes to us from the West Coast. Our first gift to the launch fund is $5,000 and comes from the East Coast. We are encouraged that God is raising up supporters for the Jackson Heights Church Plant from all over the United States!  As you probably notice, these two gifts are quite different in terms of amount but God will use every single penny for His work to be accomplished. Every dollar counts and we are so thankful for those who give toward our needs both out of a spirit of generosity as well as those who give with a sacrificial heart. May God bless the gift and the giver!   

Will you consider giving financially in the form of an annual gift, monthly gift, or toward our launch fund?  Annual and monthly donations will go directly toward the $10,300 we need per month to live in NYC and begin phase one of the church plant. We need to raise an additional $16,000 for the launch fund. This fund will allow us to pay 4 months rent, which is what is needed to secure an apartment in NYC, as well as provide for our moving expenses to Queens.  

Our family is entering a season of urgency for these funds to begin to pour in. Our goal is to move in January so we can transition our son into his new school after the holiday break. Ministry is also a bit slower in NYC from December to March, therefore it is a great time to move and figure out how to live in and navigate the city.   

Will you give? Will you encourage others to give? Will you speak to your church on our behalf? We are eager to come and speak to church groups and others who are interested in how they can partner with us. If you can’t give, will you pray that God will prick the hearts of others to give?  Will you pray for our family and for the lost people in Jackson Heights? Click here to join our support team through prayer, providing, participating.

If the Lord is prompting you to financially give in any of the 3 ways listed above, please begin your monthly giving todayBelow is a diagram that presents various levels of giving for people, churches and businesses.

Even though we are not in NYC yet, the monthly donations will be directly applied to our launch fund until we actually move. This is why we are encouraging others to set-up their online giving today. Our family cannot move until we have raised all the launch funds and secured all commitments for monthly donations! Thank you for the overwhelming support we have received these past few weeks since we have made the big announcement. Words of affirmation, phone calls, texts, cards, hugs, and prayers have been in abundance and we have felt so very loved! Thank you for your investment in us! Thank you for your investment in God’s Kingdom!  We love you!
