The  Building for Life: Now is the Time Special Offering is a call to sacrificial giving with a goal of $42,500 for three important missions and ministry areas.

Will you pray right now and ask God how He wants to use you and how He wants you to be part of this Special Offering?  Allow God to stretch you.  It will take all of us giving together to reach this God-sized goal!

Now is the Time to Impact Our WORLD for Jesus

Equipping missionaries in the US and around the World

We are a church that supports missionaries. And in 2022, through cooperative efforts with other mission-minded churches, we will equip 3,057 North American Missionaries and 3,667 International Missionaries who are meeting needs, starting churches, and taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every identified people group around the globe.

Supporting Reality Church – a New Church that is Reaching Miami for Jesus

We also are a “church that starts churches.” And through NOW IS THE TIME we will support a new cross-cultural church in Miami reaching people for Christ that we will never have the opportunity to reach.

Just 50 miles south of us, Miami is one of the most diverse and influential international cities in the world. Yet less than 10% of people living in Miami have a relationship with Jesus.

Reality Miami is a new church that is launching in one of Miami’s fast- est growing and least reached communities just steps away from the University of Miami.
We are excited to begin this partnership of supporting Reality Miami in its crucial first year.
Reality Church launches in Miami.

(Jesus) “In the same way that You gave Me a mission in the world, I give them a mission in the world.”
– John 17:18

Now is the Time to Improve our MINISTRY & WORSHIP CENTER

Enhancing our church building by repainting the exterior and installing a new sign on the front of our building to increase visibility and impact in the community

God has blessed us with an incredible church property in the heart of our community.  As we have returned to weekly in-person services and are seeing more and more first-time families attend, we have the opportunity to beautify our property and increase our visibility in the community through some needed exterior work.

Through the Building for Life: NOW IS THE TIME Special Offering we will be able to repaint our church building, as well as install a beautiful new sign on the front of the building to make our church more welcoming, and to make it easier for people in the community to find us
New sign that will increase our visibility in our community.

Beautifying the entrance to our church by creating a new Terrace Gathering Place, upgrading the patio entry gate, and landscaping

We will also replace the rusty, old entry gate that leads to our Outdoor Patio. This gate is one of the first things that people see when they come to our church. We’ll replace the current gate (which dates back to 1974!) with a brand-new, hand-crafted decorative, aluminum gate that looks modern and inviting for all of our guests.  This new gate will also have a deadbolt lock to add an extra layer of security to our property.

And to make our Outdoor Patio more useful for Sunday services and events, we will purchase outdoor furniture that allows for fellowship after the service, as well as upgrade the landscaping to enhance the beauty of this space.
New outdoor Terrace will provide a warm and welcoming place for those attending.

Investing in the spiritual growth of our children, teens, and families.

We’re a church that loves children and families! These last two years have been challenging in so many ways for the families in our church. That’s why 2022 is a year of investment and growth for our next generation. Through the Building for Life: NOW IS THE TIME Special Offering we will replace worn out toys and provide new Bible-learning tools throughout all of our Journey Kids classrooms, and continue to provide a great Kids Online experience for families who attend online each week. We are also seeing growth in our Middle & High School student ministry as more and more students are attending, serving and growing in their faith.  And through NOW IS THE TIME we will make improvements to the Student Ministry Center and expand our ministry to this vitally important age group in our church.
Your giving to Now is the Time will help make improvements in Journey Kids.

IMPORTANT “SEMI-RELATED” UPDATE 
-----------

From Lead Pastor, Jason Hatley

By reading this far in the packet, I can tell that you care about our church and its future. And while this NOW IS THE TIME Special Offering is important to help our church go to the next level for missions, community ministry, and our Ministry & Worship Center in 2022...

**The REAL key to the long-term future of our church is our larger  Building for Life Initiative**

So, the challenge is for everyone in our church to commit to make a consistent weekly or monthly gift to the Building for Life initiative between now and October 2022.

The Building for Life initiative is a BIG dream for the future of our church that goes from now through October 2022 and is focused on FOUR major areas:

Building our future baptistry

by renovating the fountain on our patio so we can baptize new believers all year long

Securing our future by paying down our debt

so that we can remain in our Ministry & Worship Center.

Supporting a New Cross-Cultural Regional Missions Church

that will be able to reach people in our region that we are not (Reality Miami).

Beautifying our Property

Some of those are outlined above… but that’s just the beginning!
To complete ALL of the Building for Life initiative projects listed above, it’s going to take ALL of us committing to give, not just in the coming weeks, but between now and October 2022.
 
So, will you be part of the Building for Life initiative by making a faith pledge?

(Jesus) "I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.”
- Matthew 16:18

Now is the Time to Engage our COMMUNITY for Jesus

Meeting the physical and spiritual needs of the poor in our area

We are a church that serves the “least of these.” During the pandemic our church has been able to step up and meet needs in unprecedented ways – providing thousands of meals, diapers, blood donations, and Christmas gifts to children and families in need. These last 19 months have been the greatest season of community impact in the history of our church.

Through the Building for Life: NOW IS THE TIME Special Offering and our partnership with Boca Helping Hands, we have an opportunity to provide meals, serve the poor, and help those in greatest need in South Florida (both spiritually and physically). And through our partnership with Place of Hope we can minister to the needs of foster families and victims of human trafficking here in South Florida
Now is the Time will help us meet needs in the community.

To reach the people of South Florida in creative ways with the life-changing love of Jesus

There has never been a greater need in our community for revival and for people to experience the life-changing love of Jesus! 83% of the nearly 500,000 people living within 7 miles of our church do not have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. That’s why South Florida is our greatest mission field.

Now is the Time will help expand our evangelism efforts in creative ways in 2022 so we can reach our community with the love of Jesus during a time of great need. In 2021 we have seen almost 70 people come to faith in Jesus and welcomed nearly 400 first time guests... and we are praying to have an even greater impact for Jesus in 2022!
Now is the Time will enable us to share Jesus in creative ways in2022.

Funding The Journey’s 2022 Benevolence Ministry to help those in our church facing a financial crisis or emergency.

Since 2011, the Benevolence Ministry has allowed us to walk beside people in distress due to difficult financial times, a loss of a job/apartment, or a death in the family and meet a one-time need. And there has never been a greater time of need in our church with so many struggling financially, emotionally and physically.
Because of your generous giving to the special offering, so far in 2021 we have been able to approve all valid requests for benevolence funding. We look forward to meeting these needs (and more) in 2022!

"Give generously to the poor, not grudgingly, for the Lord your God will bless you in everything you do."
- Deuteronomy 15:10
