Before You Pledge

1

Pray — Commit to bringing this vision before God, asking Him what your part should be. Fast with a purpose of asking to be stretched into a new level of generosity. If you are married or have children, do this together.

2

Examine — Assess your financial situation, looking at what is essential and what might not be.

Look at ways you can give sacrificially.

3

Discuss — Dedicate time to speak openly about this with others you trust. A friend, your spouse, or financial advisor.

4

Pledge — Step out in faith and make a commitment by completing the pledge form.

Why we are building

It is what God is
calling us to do.

The Ministry Centre will further empower us to develop leaders and plant gospel-centred churches across Canada, better fulfilling the mission of seeing people transformed into fully devoted followers of Jesus.

Impactful Ministry — A building designed specifically for our needs gives our ministries the capacity to be far more effective locally, nationally, and globally.

More Churches Supported and Planted — The flexibility, space, and technology available will not only allow us to better support and resource our existing locations, but also allows us to develop more leaders so we can plant more churches across the country and even around the world.

A Place to Gather — A multi-purpose building serves our city, the greater Vancouver area, as well as the larger Village Church family with a place to gather, connect, and grow.

Long-term Stability — Our current facilities have put us in a precarious position that exposes us to risk and holds us back from moving forward. A building we control gives us the security and stability to do more effective ministry long into the future.

Leverage Technology and Content — Our investment in innovative technology maximizes the teaching and talent we have to more effectively resource the church at large and spread the gospel around the globe.

Cost Effective — The cost-benefit analysis shows a build solution to be more cost effective in the long term over a "continue to do what we're doing" scenario.

How we do this together

The remaining cost for the Ministry Centre including building, parking, soft costs, and contingencies is projected to be $48M.

We are asking us as a church to give $30M ($10M/year over 3 years) and we will borrow the remaining.

Our goal is to raise the entire amount by the time the project is completed in 2022. We are trusting God for that amount and we know it is achievable if every family gives what they can in faith.

Here is an example of how it might be distributed.

A Ministry Centre
that develops leaders and plants gospel-centred churches.
