Intentional Kingdom Expansion, one person at a time, until almost the whole city celebrates the gospel of Jesus Christ.

In Acts 13, the city of Antioch is turned upside down. Jewish people are told that no amount of commandment-keeping will ever set them free. Only Jesus can set us free. This message causes an uproar - some love the message and some are offended. Many beg to hear more. Can you imagine? What if our community was marked by people begging to hear about Jesus? A better questions than, "what if?" is "why not?" It happened in the first century Antioch when no one knew about Jesus and His resurrection.

Surely it can happen here.

Our Next Step is stewardship

In the history of Arrowhead Church, we have never gone without supply for any need we sensed the Lord leading us through. He has proved Himself faithful, and far more than faithful, time and time again. It's been our story that we've never had to worry about finances, although we've done our best to stretch the limits of the vision He has put before us. He is a gracious, giving God. 

Money hasn't fallen from the sky, though. Faithful men and women, married and single, young and old, have trusted the Lord with their finances by entrusting them to the mission of Arrowhead Church. Some have given smaller amounts. That's not as important as the sacrifice that has been made. This family of intentional, relational disciples has been faithful to give through the crazy season of the first 7 years of a new church. The impact has been powerful. 

Now, our vision is to reach almost the whole city with the gospel of Jesus.

Those aren't simply grand words, but an actual passion. And, not just this city of Morristown, but other cities, even other nations. Although we're all confident He'll provide for the vision He's entrusted to us, it's time once again for us to get on the same page with our church's finances, and more importantly, our personal finances.

Current Facility

God has put us here to reach this city - to go to whatever lengths required to see almost all of it respond to the gospel of Jesus. That means we're going to need an aggressive strategy of intentional evangelism. We're going to need to steward our time well. 

We're also going to need to steward our resources well. If we're going to get the gospel to as many people as possible, we need to pay down the debt on our current building so that the generations to come aren't saddled by it. Now that we've settled into our Maple Valley location, we have plenty of space for all of us to engage in relationships and invite more people into our lives, our homes, and our church building. 


Church Planting

Beyond simply praying down debt on a facility, kingdom expansion will require more churches. Read the Book of Acts. As the gospel spread, new churches were formed. Let's be clear: if we're going to reach almost the whole city, it's going to require more churches. These churches must be different from us, but we also can plant our DNA as a church into more in our community. This may take time on the form of intentionally reaching other socioeconomic segments in our town, even other nationalities. 

Local Missions

From the beginning, Arrowhead has been a place that realizes we're blessed to bless others. We know we have an abundance of financial blessing, and we also see dramatic need in our town. In the past, we've given food and gifts, and met needs as the Lord has led. We can continue to help, and we're not going to treat missions like an afterthought. 

 

Surrounding Towns

We also believe the Almost the Whole City vision isn't just for Morristown. Over 150,000 people live in our region, and although they may have heard the gospel, many aren't freed by the gospel as Acts 13 describes. In the coming months ahead, we're going to be laying out ideas and prayer needs for other Arrowhead church plants and campus extensions in our region. We believe God is calling us to focus on multiplying disciples in our surrounding towns as well. 

The Nations

The purpose of God is global, and the purpose of every church is global. We can affect the word of God around the world in an instant by praying and giving. We also want to go, and we're establishing 2-3 new partnerships through the International Mission Board for more of us to be able to get on foreign soil and see the power of the gospel at work. Within the Almost the Whole City vision is a passion for cities around the world. We'll continue to partner with The Rescue Ministries in The Philippines, as well as to form a partnership with those working among some of the 2 billion people in the world who have never heard of Jesus.

Trusting the Lord with our finances revolves around two key principles, although they could be stated in many different ways. The reason Jesus said more about money than any other subject in relation to our devotion to Him is that it is such a revelation of our hearts. He said in Matthew 6:21, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” 

The Lord promises to bless when we trust Him with our money.

We can use the term “money” to encompass all that we believe will meet our needs. Either God is our supply or we are. Jesus made it clear that for us to give our money to God reveals that we trust Him with our future. The result of that trust is blessing. Once we lay aside the fear of not having enough and give faithfully to God as an act of worship, He blesses us. This blessing may or may not be in the form of more money, but the promise is that He will take care of us. We don’t have to worry anymore. He provides.

The most basic way to think about faithful Christian giving is in the form of a tithe. The Lord asks Christians to give 10% of their income to their local church (Malachi 3, Matthew 23). That “tithe” is His, and we’re to return it to Him as an act of trust and worship. Our giving should be generous and cheerful (2 Corinthians 8-9), and it should begin by giving 10%. This amount is often somewhat painful to begin to give, and that’s normal! However, the blessing we receive far outweighs the burden. 

The Lord uses money to fund mission.

The Lord is at work in our church. Lives are being changed, likely including our own. This happens through people, but it costs money to do ministry. That money is given by the disciples of Jesus in any local church, and the same is true at Arrowhead. There are no outside organizations funding the building, the ministries, the missions, or anything else. It’s done by all of us, sacrificing our income together. This is a brilliant plan of God.

 

Would you consider becoming a percentage giver?

Our hope is that all who call Arrowhead home would move toward tithing. There are financial counselors who know God’s Word who would love to anonymously help you with the numbers if you would so desire. We’d love to know you’re trusting the Lord as you begin to tithe or even move toward it on an Almost The Whole City commitment.

The Almost the Whole City campaign is a big step for us. We’re asking all of us who tithe to consider going above and beyond that tithe by giving even more. We all know we can’t out-give God, and it’s our privilege to give more to Him. This money will be used to advance God’s kingdom, and it’s a worthy investment. You may choose to give one time or you may give an annual, monthly, or even weekly pledge to this campaign. This pledge is a commitment to generosity that will open up the doors even further for kingdom expansion.
