All it takes is one small, tiny, humble spark to ignite a massive fire.

That’s all it takes. 

One small step, one tiny sacrifice, one humble spark. One woman’s bravery to not move to the back of the bus led to a civil rights movement to change the course of our country. One man’s hate to assassinate a Duke led to the War to end all Wars, changing the culture of our world. And one man’s death on a cross led to a movement that would change the course of all mankind. Each a spark that fanned into flame hundreds, thousands, and millions of more sparks to alter history. 

And our time is now. 

We have come to one of those moments when another spark is needed. It is time to not only celebrate the 50 years of major impact that this church has had in our city, our country, and our world, but also to take the next step of faith, It is our turn to make those thousands of small sacrifices. It is our time to make a spark to ignite this church forward to the next 50 years of impact here, near, and far away. 

And that is what our SPARK initiative is all about.

SPARK TITLE GOALS.PNG

PRIMARY GOAL:

100% PARTICIPATION

SPARK is first and foremost a discipleship initiative. We want to learn new things about God and ourselves. 

We are calling on every person in the College Heights family to invest in unprecedented ways to see God work powerfully here in our church, our community, and around the world.


SECONDARY GOAL: 

$9 Million in generosity

We are funneling our generosity into one fund. This includes our general fund for two years, debt elimination, facility upgrades, and advancing our outreach beyond the walls of our church–here, near, and far away.

ONGOING MINISTRY

During these two years, we need to continue our giving to our regular on-going ministries and normal expenses so that we can SPARK our mission of making disciples who change the world.

DEBT ELIMINATION

In order to accomplish our vision, we first need a SPARK to remove key obstacles that hold us back from our full potential. Our first priority will be to eliminate remaining debt.

INCREASED OUTREACH

We want to SPARK greater impact in our community and the world by: 

  • planting two churches

  • hiring a Community Outreach Minister

  • sending a new team to North Africa

  • covering our annual One Less Gift initiatives

  • funding our regular outreach ministries 

FACILITY UPGRADES

Our facilities have allowed us to pursue 50 years of faithful ministry but they are showing their age. We need to SPARK more efficient use of our ministry spaces by: 

  • renovating the Chapel for children’s and student ministries, weddings, and funerals

  • retooling the Atrium to be more welcoming and functional for a wide variety of events and ministry programs

  • refreshing the Worship Center to improve guests’ first-time experience at College Heights
