It’s My Birthday and Here’s What I Want

imgdjd It's my birthday

If you are a Christ follower, how much would it mean to you to know you were making a real difference in someone else’s life? To actually know that God used you to play a part in changing someone’s life, and that your generosity really can have an impact on others. No matter how much you have.

Because no matter how much you have to give, all of it ought to matter. It shouldn’t be that only those that have much can make a difference.

Like you, I’ve wrestled with those same thoughts. When I was in college living off ramen noodles and frozen pizza, I wondered if the churches or organizations I gave to could really use what I had given, and if it was really making much of a difference. But one thing I was sure of, I wanted to see other people’s lives impacted by Jesus the same way Jesus had impacted me.

Which is a driving force behind why we are planting New City Church. In fact, there is no more effective way to make a difference in the lives of those who don’t know the love of Jesus than church planting. Did you know that church plants are six to eight times more likely to reach unchurched people than established churches of the same size?

We are starting New City Church in order to play whatever part we can in seeing lives be changed by Jesus. And I want you to play a part in this as well.

Here is how you can play a big role in impacting people’s lives with the love of Jesus. My birthday is this month (May 14), and I want to give away my birthday to help move things forward in the process of planting New City Church. This month our desire is to raise $30,000 to put us in a position to begin making the necessary purchases and investments that it takes to start a church. Things like sound equipment, kids ministry supplies, and funds we can use to serve our city.

Will you help us reach our goal? If so, our promise to you is threefold.

  • We will keep you up to date on where we are at in the fundraising journey.
  • That nothing makes a bigger difference for God’s kingdom than church planting, and you will be a part of that.
  • We will (always) be completely transparent about the use of our funds. Should you ever have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.

So here is what I am asking you. Will you give to make this New City Church a reality? Will you give so that you can make a real difference in people’s lives? Over the years, if you have found my blog or anything I have done helpful to you, will you do the same for someone else? Someone that, because of your generosity, will be impacted by the love of Christ?

Here is what I can promise you when you participate in this goal of raising $30,000 in the month of May. Here’s what you will know:

  • That you played a significant role in changing other people’s lives.
  • That you honored God with what you have
  • That no matter how much you have, you used your resources for good
  • That you made a way for people to meet Jesus
  • That you played a part in something bigger than yourself

Jesus said that he came to give us life and life to the full, but that only happens if we follow him. There is no more effective way to reach people far from God than church planting, and nothing even comes close. So don’t miss out on bringing about life change for others. Don’t miss out in using whatever capacity you have for impacting others.

Will you help us raise $30,000 today?
