In 2014, Cross Pointe began a three-year campaign to expand our reach globally, begin multicampus ministry locally, grow our NextGen Ministries, and reduce our church’s debt. This campaign, called Be More, enabled us to do all of these, and more. We funded 1.5 million miles of missions travel and ministry. We launched our Mill Creek campus and joined with our Lanier Campus. We updated technologies and systems to facilitate multiple campuses. We grew our CarePointe community ministries. And we initiated work on new NextGen facilities.
Now in 2017 we have the opportunity to build on this foundation. We can do more than ever before to reach our community for Jesus, disciple the next generation, plant and grow the church around the world, and continue to erase our existing debt.
Be More Commitment Day March 26
We invite you to join us in 2017 to Be More, by committing over-and-above your budget offerings to financially support our church and ministries. On Sunday, March 26, we'll make our commitments to the Be More campaign. Each Cross Pointe family this week received information by mail which includes a letter from Pastor Merritt, a commitment card and privacy envelope, and a brochure with additional details about Be More. Our Pastor, staff and leaders have already made their commitments. Come on Sunday, March 26, ready to join us in making your commitment.
Missions, Capital Needs and More
Pastor Merritt will lead out in this challenge. Our Be More campaign directly enables us to expand and fulfill our church’s mission. Our prayer is to raise an additional $1.4 million dollars in 12 months to do more to point people to Jesus, and inspire them to live the cross shaped life. Through your generous giving, together we will Be More for Christ to our community and our world than ever before.
Be More directly funds the capital needs of our church, beyond our operating budget. This includes our mission partnerships, NextGen Ministry and campus ministry expansion, and our debt retirement.
Pay It Forward
We're here enjoying all that Cross Pointe has to offer, and are a part of the impact our church has for the Kingdom, because of those who have gone before us. Our Mill Creek and Lanier campuses, Sugarloaf NextGen ministry expansion, a half-million miles on mission in 2016, and over $1.7 million of debt retired are all the result of those who committed and gave to our last campaign. Now we have the opportunity to pay it forward and create additional ministry and Gospel opportunities for the people we have yet to reach.
