You can INtercede for the Thompsons every day in 2012.
You can come INto the City of Columbus with us to plant this church.
And third, you can INvest in what God is doing in and through us as Financial Partners.
A number of churches have joined together to help initiate this church plant financially. They have pledged about $150,000 to be dispersed over three years, which is incredible.
Funding by this model, necessitates the church planter coming up with $100,000 over three years.
The intent is that at the end of three years, the church would be a thriving and self-sustaining movement.
So you may have 100,000 dollars laying around that is burning a hole in your pocket and you want to help out. If that is you, give me a call and I will be over in 20 minutes!
But more likely, a team of financial partners, who believe and affirm God's calling on us and see the need for more Churches in the OSU/Columbus area is needed.
We are looking for partners who will pledge a monthly amount beginning this month (January) and continuing for 36 months.
This is a chance to be creative. You may not be able to swing 100/month or 200/month but maybe your small group, your Sunday School, your church your office coworkers, your local chapter of the Chaia Joy Fan Club, etc. feels called to pool their resources and become INvested partners in that capacity.
If you feel called to be INvested partners, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know how God is stirring.
If you do not think that you can afford monthly investment, you can also do a one time contribution.
Either way, you simply need to submit payment. You can make your check out to stadia and send it to
