OVER TWO YEARS
As we enter the second year of Setting the Table our primary goal remains the same—that 100% of all those who call Declaration home would take a deep dive into radical generosity and irresistible hospitality.
SETTING THE TABLE for
$3.5 MILLION OVER TWO YEARS
There are currently over sixty thousand households within 10 miles of our church, with many more to come. God has positioned our church to be a light, right in the center – the heart – of our community. But it doesn’t stop there. God has already put a heart in Declaration with greater vision for a greater mission. Together, we will invest in our ongoing ministries while trusting God to accelerate and grow the life-change and discipleship that is happening. This part of our initiative fuels our general budget over two years – sustaining and growing every ministry we currently have, to continue helping people encounter and follow Jesus.
SETTING THE TABLE for
$2.3 MILLION OVER TWO YEARS
We also need to root ourselves deeply as Declaration grows wide. We need an anchor and a home to further God’s mission through Declaration. We need a permanent face and footprint in our community that lends strength and stability. This part of our initiative will enable us to break ground to build the first phase of our ministry campus, which will expand our reach and impact! This will also sow money into the expansion of Declaration’s heart and vision for church planting as well as help seed the launch of a campus in Tomball. Equipping is also deeply important as it pertains to multiplication. Because of this, we are engaging in a strategic partnership with The Bible Seminary to offer classes at our Declaration campus upon completion.
*Our projected cost of our ministry campus is $8.5M. We are anticipating financing $4.5-5M as the remainder from the proceeds from selling frontage acreage of our land and gifts from the Setting the Table Initiative.
We are asking you to go on a spiritual journey with God and your family and to take the greatest faith step of generosity you’ve ever taken as we move together to accomplish God’s vision for us through Setting the Table.
FOUR SPECIFIC WAYS WE ASK YOU TO ENGAGE:
Ask God to work in the hearts of everyone at Declaration and give us a passion for seeking His Kingdom first, above all else. (Matthew 6:33)
Ask God to give you a renewed sense of urgency and passion for the gospel! Help us reach our primary goal of 100% engagement in Setting the Table. Pray and simply commit to all that God asks of you.
Ask God to show you what generous, faith stretching giving looks like for you and your family. Cheerfully and expectantly commit to give generously. (2 Cor. 9:6-8)
As God speaks and moves during our journey together, share your story of how God is teaching, growing, and encouraging you to encourage others. Be about declaring His mighty acts! (1 Chronicles 16:8)
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us,
to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
