Our Goals for Beyond us
First and foremost, our Beyond Us initiative is a discipleship effort. Whether it’s in your study of Scripture, your prayer life, how you’re serving, or how you’re giving, we’re always excited to see you take your next steps in everyday discipleship. So, our first goal is to see everyone at Waypoint participate in giving over the next two years towards our Beyond Us initiative. God has blessed the body with many different giftings that uniquely serve the ministry of our church, but we want everyone at Waypoint to be unified in sacrificial generosity, as we all take our next steps in discipleship by becoming more and more like Christ. We want to learn new things about God and about ourselves. We want every single person at Waypoint to engage in Beyond Us and to be willing to take a next step of growth in this area of generosity. Whether you’ve never given anything before, whether you’re an infrequent contributor, or whether you’re a consistent and thoughtful giver, there is a next step God is asking you to take in this journey.
Typically, our church’s generosity goal (operating budget) would total $9 million over the next two years. Beyond Us is designed to increase our generosity goal over these next two years by another $6 million. So, our secondary goal is to increase our total giving to $15 million over the next two years. We want to focus that $15 million into a “One Fund” in order to advance the vision of Waypoint Church. Our secondary goal consists of what we’re calling “The Four M’s:” Ministry, Mission, Main Campus, and Multiplication. If 100% of people at Waypoint are fully engaged, we expect to see an increase in generosity like we’ve never seen before.
