In prayer, we worship and are moved by the Spirit to be generous as we ask expectantly for God to BREAKTHROUGH.
In order to be faithful to our calling and to maximize the opportunities that God has opened up to us, we as a church are launching a new initiative that we are calling “BREAKTHROUGH.” Together, over the next three years we will challenge one another to go above and beyond our regular giving to make way for God’s BREAKTHROUGH in PEOPLE, PLACES, and PLANTS.
Investing and expanding the impact where God is at work through:
Emerging leaders and leadership residents
Artists and Songwriters
Investing and expanding the impact at our locations:
Acquiring 24/7 homes for Lincoln Park and Downers Grove
Making building improvements to Naperville and Plainfield
Assessing the options for a new 24/7 location for Montgomery
Funding outreach or facility improvements for all locations
Launching Community Online
Investing and expanding the impact by planting churches:
Chicago church plants
Community Freedom plants in prisons
