OUR IMAGINE VISION

The IMAGINE Initiative is a two-year journey that we will each make together so that we can fulfill the vision that God has given to both Southport Heights Christian Church, and to each of us personally as His children.

This IMAGINE Initiative is an opportunity for us to take the ministry of Southport Heights Christian Church to the next level. Now is the time that we come together and heighten the unity of our church, advancing on a vision to overcome barriers that have prevented us from having the impact as a church that we want to have. This IMAGINE Initiative is a time to challenge ourselves to a greater level of commitment of our time, talent and treasure so that we can be a part of something that has eternal value. As a church body, it is time to pray and declare that we are ready to IMAGINE!

 

WHAT IS THE IMAGINE INITIATIVE ABOUT?

IMAGINE OUR IMPACT

We will combine and resource our Core Ministry Plan along with the Mission’s Ministry strategy of SHCC for the next two years. It is vital that we continue to execute the normal ministry efforts that we have planned for the next two years. We also want to strategically reframe our Mission’s Ministry support in such a way that it allows us to expand our support while establishing a stronger sense of unified, corporate church support of our Mission’s Ministry.

IMAGINE OUR FUTURE

We will make renovations to create an environment that is attractive and inviting to children and young families. It is vital that we create an environment that is incredibly attractive to children and their parents. To do this, we will continue our renovations to make our facilities look fresh, attractive and inviting.

 THE IMAGINE GOALS

THE PRIMARY GOAL = 100% PARTICIPATION

We want every person who calls Southport Heights Christian Church their church home to be a part of this IMAGINE Initiative. Now is the time that we come together and heighten the unity of our church around advancing this vision and mission.

THE SECONDARY GOAL = $1,650,000

We are trusting Him to move through His people to invest $1.65M over these next two years to accomplish the vision He has given us.

Based on our current level of giving, we have established a two-year budget of $1.1M for our general fund and missions. In order to accomplish this IMAGINE Initiative, it will take an additional $550K over the next two years, over and above our regular budget.

$1,100,000 = IMAGINE OUR IMPACT

$550,000 = IMAGINE OUR FUTURE

In other words, to maintain our current level of ministry for the next two years, –AND—accomplish this expanded vision, it will take a total of $1.65M over two years. We CAN do this… but we can only do this together.

 

WHAT’S NEXT?

  • PRAY | Pray that God will work in the hearts of His people at Southport Heights Christian Church and that we will listen and obey.
  • COMMIT | The primary goal of this initiative is 100% participation. That begins with your decision that you’re going to listen to what God tells you to do, and then commit to doing what He asks. We also need your commitment to stand with us in support of this initiative and lend your influence of others to do the same.
  • CELEBRATE | God is going to do some amazing things as we launch this initiative! Our worship is going to be vibrant. The messages during this initiative are going to be compelling and we’re going to hear some amazing stories of victories from many in our congregation. Let’s be poised and ready to celebrate all of these in a big way.
  • GIVE | Ultimately, each of us will turn in an IMAGINE Commitment Card indicating what we will give to this initiative. What should your commitment look like you ask? It should be something that is responsible and yet stretches you to take your faith to a whole new level in your giving and generosity.

 “HIS POWER IN US WILL DO MORE THAN WE COULD DARE TO IMAGINE.”
