Make A Commitment

Give To Forward

To make forward a reality, all of us will be challenged to contribute in ways that are rare and significant. While faithful tithing/giving can supply a church’s usual needs, only radical generosity can accomplish what is needed to reach beyond ourselves like this.

We invite you to consider things you may be able to sacrifice and give towards forward, and then make a comprehensive 18-month commitment of your total generosity. This commitment will be above and beyond your normal giving.

Many of us have the capacity to give from accumulated resources/blessings God provided for us in the past that may be used to give to his purposes and plans today; stored resources could include savings accounts, valuables, stocks, tax returns, or property. Others will sacrifice funds from their annual budgets. However God leads you to participate, thank you for your investment in building a legacy beyond ourselves.

How To Give

1 // SMALL CHANGES

Eating out less often or drinking water instead of soda are small changes that yield big results. A family of four who eats out once a week and determines to drink water instead of ordering drinks, could save about $400 per year.

2 // REVIEW PRIORITIES

Postponing a planned expense like a new car, home remodel, or major purchase are ways of sacrifice. Choosing to rearrange current priorities and give up something in your current budget such as cable are also options. Even giving up a weekly trip to Starbucks could save hundreds over the course of a year.

3 // DONATE ASSETS

There are some incredible tax advantages to giving appreciated assets, such as stock, bonds, or real estate.

4 // REDIRECT PRESENT EXPENDITURES

Once a short-term expense has ended, such as a loan or credit card bill, redirect this new cash flow into forward. Redirecting an average car payment upon paying it off would equal around $4800 per year.

4 // INCREASE GIVING WITH INCREASED INCOME

Sometimes we know of bonuses, raises, tax returns, or other events in our lives that will increase our cash flow in the next 12 months. Families can decide to delay increasing their lifestyle for a short period in order to give to the project.
