Our goal for ALL IN was 100% participation of those who call themselves Fearless Followers and to raise $15 million dollars for our mission, vibrancy, and expansion activities.
In December of 2019, you made pledges totaling $14,561,000. As of this letter, 93% of you who committed have fulfilled or exceeded what you initially pledged. That is astounding. Well done! We have collected about $11 million, which is also remarkable given that a couple of our larger gifts have been delayed. Our ministries are making a significant difference in so many lives. As we increase ministry activities and pay-down our investments in facilities, we will only expand our future opportunities. As always, we will continue to put everything in Jesus’ hands. Learn More
