MY FAITH PROMISE
Invite the Holy Spirit to show you where you can grow your faith in the area of intentional generosity. Ask God to reveal to you what he would have you pledge towards global missions.
When you are ready to respond to the Spirit’s prompting, complete the Faith Promise pledge form below.
Look forward to how God will provide, and as he does, follow through on your pledges throughout the year.
A FAITH PROMISE IS A PROMISE BETWEEN YOU AND GOD, TO SUPPORT OUR GLOBAL MISSIONARIES IN THE COMING YEAR. IT IS A FINANCIAL PLEDGE THAT IS ABOVE AND BEYOND OUR REGULAR TITHES AND OFFERINGS TO SUPPORT THE GLOBAL MISSION NEEDS OF OUR WORLD.
“God, after praying and listening to your Holy Spirit about how I (we) can actively participate in your global mission through intentional generosity that you provide, I (we) commit to give the following amount over the next year”:
How does my Faith Promise pledge impact the Global Mission budget of the church?
While your financial pledge encourages our future global mission plans, it does not determine the budget of our Global Mission Department. The team prayerfully observes what God is doing in our world, embracing his good plans for how we as a church can continue to support our missionaries and partners.
Will you track my financial giving against my Faith Promise pledge?
No, your Faith Promise is a prayerful commitment between you and God.
How do I give towards my Faith Promise financial commitments?
You can give towards your Faith Promise pledge throughout the year in any of the following ways:
- Online using the church app or website
- Pre-authorized debits
- Mailing your gift to the church
- Transfer of Securities
- During our Sunday Services (once we’re able to gather in person again!)
Please remember to indicate “Global Mission” on every gift made towards your Faith Promise.

How do I explore a vocation as a missionary, and/or with a mission partner?
Through a trusted mentor, pastor, or Life Group leader you would be recommended to the Global Mission team to begin discussing specialized training and serving opportunities which would help you to discern and define your calling to missions. Joining a discipleship group and serving locally will always be the beginning of any kind of mission vocation.
How do I learn about mission team experiences?
The best way to learn about the impact of mission team experiences is to speak with people who have been a part of past mission teams. Ask your Life Group leader to invite members of a mission team to share with your Life Group (there may be others in your group who are also considering this opportunity!). There are hundreds of people in our congregation who have had mission team experiences so you probably already know people who have served in this way. Ask them to share with you about their experience.
If there is a specific Mission Team you would like to learn more about, speak with a member of our Global Mission Department.
How do learn about volunteer opportunities that support global mission initiatives?
Our Mission Teams are the champions and advocates for our global mission initiatives. You don’t have to travel anywhere in order to be a team member! We need people who stay right here to encourage and intercede in the power of prayer, to share the stories of how God is at work in our world, and to provide support through resources. Consider joining a Mission Team as a home-base participant!
