Why We Give

Here are some answers to common questions.

Your contribution makes world-changing impact across the breadth of our ministries, everything from inspiring kids and students to grow and learn in a safe, engaging environment, to ensuring that weekly gatherings and groups continue to connect people with one another and the hope of Jesus. Your generosity keeps life-changing ministry going not just today, but for the next generation coming up behind us.

Absolutely! If you’re giving online or via mobile, there’s a drop-down box next to the “Amount” field which allows you to select where you would like to direct your donation to. If you’re giving via check, simply note in “FOR” located in the lower-left corner of the check.  

All financial information is encrypted and stored by our banking partner to PCI DSS Level 1 compliant standards.  PCI DSS Level 1 compliance is a set of rules stated by credit card companies and audited by an independent third party.  It is the highest possible rating one can get in the electronic payment processing industry.  Additionally, forces HTTPS for all transaction services using TLS.

There are security measures in place when giving electronically. If a phone is lost (even if someone is logged into, no transaction can be made without the user’s secret code. This is an extra layer of security protecting you from malicious activity.  

We will send you a giving statement by January 31st of the following calendar year. If you need help getting a copy of your giving statement or have questions about your giving history, just let us know at and we’d be happy to help!
