This initiative is the largest step of faith we have taken as a church since our launch in 2016. In fact, it is so big, it will absolutely depend on a powerful, miraculous movement of God, and our faithful obedience to come into fruition!
Imagine a church, united and mobilized around the mission of Jesus—100% engagement, meaning every individual and family in the church, fully surrendered to God, actively pressing in through prayer and generosity and begging for Him to move.
What would it look like if your testimony of generosity, motivated by a heart fully surrendered to Jesus, created a legacy honoring and drawing more people to Jesus?
Incredible opportunities have come to us, and we desire to seize this moment so that we may help more people come to know God, find freedom, discover their God-created purpose, and make an eternal difference!
This is the heart of The MVMT Initiative, because we believe that it is our heart that God is after. God delights in unity, and a church that is fully surrendered to Him is the recipe for a world-changing movement of God to begin!
We believe MVMT to be first and foremost a discipleship initiative. This is God calling us to deeper places of obedience, holiness, and definition. We desire to love Jesus fully and learn new things about God and ourselves! Our desire is that every single person at Declaration will move towards Jesus. As we personally seek radical devotion to Christ and His Kingdom, let’s humbly and courageously consider:
What steps do I need to take to move away from the pursuit of my own comfort and move toward deeper dependence upon Jesus?
How can I joyfully and gratefully honor God with 100% of what He has given to me?
What movement of generosity do I need to consider in order to express my gratitude for what God has done in my life?
We’ve asked the Lord to show us what kind of impact He wants us to makeover the next two years for His Kingdom, and we believe He has identified two areas. We are trusting Him to move through His people to invest $5.5 million over these next two years to accomplish the vision He has given us.
Purchase property for our future church location as well as secure a significant amount of capital to be used in the construction of our future facility.
Provision for two years of our operating budget which is our ministry catalyst—our continued vision to love Jesus, declare His greatness, and live on mission reaching our community and our world with the gospel of Jesus. This also includes our Acts 1:8 mission appropriations and church planting support.
More than anything, The MVMT Initiative is all about our heart, for His heart. God desires to do major things in us and through us. We are blessed to be a blessing! This will require prayer, surrender, faith and obedience.
It’s going to be an amazing two years seeking God together and giving Him our all!
As we pray, we are asking God for His wisdom to discern if this is His desired promised land for our future church campus. With the expense of land in our area, we believe this very well could be God on the move in that this property has presented itself with a seller who desires to partner with us, willing to offer this acreage for $2.05 million.
