What is Leading a Legacy?
Leading a Legacy is an opportunity to put a strong physical foundation under the values and mission of Revive Church. We look ahead to the thousands of lives that will be influenced and changed over the next 100 years. We are not just leaving a legacy; we are Leading a Legacy!
How is the money used?
Leading a Legacy money is kept separate from our general fund. It is being used solely for the purchase and renovation of the Dawn Lane property as we ready it for church use.
Why are we still fundraising?
God has given us so many miracles and confirmations during this process. Our original capital campaign was to be three years. – at that time, we had no property in sight. Miraculously, we signed the papers to take ownership of the Dawn Lane property and announced it three years TO THE SUNDAY from the start of our capital campaign. We chose to extend the campaign one year to allow more people time to complete their commitments. Then…the pandemic and population growth. The challenges of the Covid pandemic dramatically slowed permitting and building processes as those require approval from government agencies and many were closed or functioning at a vastly slower pace. In addition, as the valley continues to grow, the cost of building materials, contractors, and labor has risen. Knowing this was not outside God’s timing or purview, we continue to step forward in our commitment to give our all to see His mission completed.
When are we getting the money?
We received funding via Church Growth Fund of Converge Northwest for the purchase of the property at North Dawn Place. The financing package they were able to offer us allowed us to keep over $200,000 in cash for use toward all the renovations and preparations we will need to make.
When do we plan to be finished?
Proverbs 16:9 says, “The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” We continue to do all we can to function fully in the spaces we have in the office building and the tent. Our heart is to be ready to launch in the worship center by Fall Kick-Off – which is late August 2021. God knows His perfect timing, so we continue to press forward in hope and wait on Him!
Can I make a non-cash gift?
There are several ways that you can contribute to Leading a Legacy. You can donate stocks, property, or other items of value. We can accept them and provide you with a giving receipt. There are tax advantages to giving stocks directly to Revive instead of selling them and giving the money to the church.
Can I reverse my pledge?
Definitely! Your pledge amount is between you and God. If your situation changes, you can simply contact the church office to notify us of the revision.
If I fall behind on my commitment, will the church pressure me?
While we keep track of your giving for administrative reasons, but your pledge is between you and God. We will not be pressuring anyone.
How much are we trying to raise?
Our original goal was $400,000 over a three-year period. We came unbelievably close to reaching that commitment and extended the campaign to a fourth year to give people more time to complete their commitments. This allowed us to purchase property and a building for under $1 million and has given us a debt service similar to what we were paying in rent prior to the purchase. We have currently been advised that additional funds of $200,000 will be needed to cover the rise in building costs in order to complete the worship center. We feel God’s leading to pursue that amount and any “abundantly more” He calls people to give in order to finish the mission and eradicate the building debt as soon as possible.
What if we raise more than our goal?
This is a real possibility given how generous our people are! All the money raised will be used specifically for the new facility.
