Q: What is VISION 20/20?
A: VISION 20/20 is the next great step God is calling us to take as a church to continue His mission to Love God, Love Others, and Serve the World.
Q: What are we building?
A: VISION 20/20will provide us with a new, state-of-the-art facility where we will be able to secure our future in a permanent location and add more seats to our capacity so God can add more souls to His kingdom. This facility will more than double our capacity to love and to lead adults, students, and children, and to leave a legacy for the generations to come.
Q: How much will it cost?
A:Phase 1 ofVISION 20/20will construct approximately 20,000sf of new space which will include a 650+ seat auditorium and multi-use space. After obtaining plans from our architect and having discussions with contractors and city officials, the projected cost for Phase 1 construction is $3M.
Phase 2 of VISION 20/20 will run concurrent with, or shortly after the completion of Phase 1 and will remodel the existing 18,000sf building on the site to create classrooms for safe, age-appropriate, and fun experiences where our children and students can grow in their faith. We can begin Phase 2 and work in stages as the Lord provides additional funds.
Q: What are you asking me to do?
A: Pray. Each household that calls Living The Word Church home is being asked to enter into a conversation with God, asking, “Lord, what do you want to do through me?” in regard to VISION 20/20.
Respond. When you’ve heard God’s leading for your household, respond by completing a VISION 20/20 commitment card and returning it to the church on or before Commitment Weekend.
Q: When do I need to make my commitment?
A: Many leaders in our church and community have expressed the desire to commit generously to VISION 20/20. While some have expressed their commitments early, we have designated Sunday, May 19th, as our official Commitment Day.
Q: Who will see my commitment card?
A: Living The Word Church takes the privacy of our contributors very seriously. Only the Financial Director and the Executive Team of VISION 20/20 will have access to commitment cards.
Q: How long will I have to complete my VISION 20/20 commitment?
A:The giving period is three years, beginning in May of 2019 and ending in April of 2022.
Q: Is this commitment over and above my regular giving to Living The Word Church?
A:Yes.It is very important that you not shift your giving from the ministry/operating general fund to VISION 20/20. VISION 20/20 is over and above your regular giving.
Q: Do I have to wait until May 19th to begin giving to the VISION 20/20 need?
A:You can begin giving immediately by simply writing VISION 20/20 on the memo line of your check or on your cash envelope, or by directing your online gifts to the VISION 20/20 fund on our website.
