WHY DO WE GIVE

 

At Simple Church, we teach and practice the Biblical principle of tithing. Tithe simply means a tenth. When we tithe, we give 10% of our income to God first. God calls us to give as an act of obedience and also to give generously. Once you are faithfully tithing, we would like you to consider giving above and beyond. 

Each year we set specific goals for outreach and campus expansion so that more and more people can be reached with the Gospel. Difference Makers are people who give sacrificially, above and beyond their tithe to help us expand the Kingdom of God locally, globally, and for future Christian leaders.

 

 

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

 

Watch this short teaching from Pastor Aaron to help you understand the difference between tithes, offerings, and Difference Makers giving.  

YOUR GIVING AT WORK

As people of God, we give because god has given so much to us. God doesn't need our money, but he does want what it represents: our purposes, passions, and priorities.

Our giving makes a Kingdom impact locally in Reynoldsburg, across the country, and globally through missions efforts. We give to increase the Kingdom through our generosity so that we might reach those far from God.

We achieve this by giving 10% (a tithe of your tithes) directly to missionaries who are actively preaching the gospel, which is the good news about Jesus.

The missionaries we currently support are serving Indonesia, Estonia, El Salvador, Madagascar, Southern Iraq, Peninsular Asia, and The Ohio State University.

Then, we invest 100% of your Difference Maker giving, (any funds above and beyond the tithe), back into the expansion of God's work locally (35%), globally (40%), and into future Christian leaders (25%).

Locally we support the Ohio Ministry Network, Freedom City Collective, Embrace Grace, and Heart Food Pantry. We also fund our own outreach initiatives:

  • Joy Ride: brand new bikes given away in the 4th of July Parade

  • Homeless Outreach: providing food, sleeping bags, tents, personal hygiene items, laundry services, and showers to those experiencing homelessness

  • Holiday Hope: a Christmas program that restores dignity to parents and provides gifts for children

  • Community Support: helping people with counsel, resources and support for meeting their basic needs (food, housing, clothing), finances, mental health, recovery, life planning, and more.

  • Building Renovations: improving our facilities to be able to serve our community in increasingly greater ways

Globally we support Convoy of Hope, Speed the Light, Bible translation efforts, and capital projects for our mission trips and missionaries.

Finally, we give to future Christian leaders by investing in church planting efforts (OCMN, CMN, ARC), OMN Youth Camp scholarships, Heartland Retreat Center, Ignite Students, and Kids Min here at SC.
