Restoration operates on a lean, though effective budget. This is possible through our disciple-making model that is focused on equipping multiple lay leaders to lead discipleship groups in homes, restaurants, and coffee shops. Even our corporate gathering meets in a donated space, to create a scalable model for ministry multiplication. Everything we do is designed to make disciples out of people who are currently far from God.
If you are interested in giving here are a few things to do:
If you would like to invest in the Kingdom of God by giving to Restoration, you can do so in three ways:
Thank you for helping us make disciples! By the way: we recently changed giving tools, if you had recurring giving set up before, please sign-up again through our new system.
Giving is one of the easiest things for sleazy pastors to talk about and the hardest thing for good pastors to talk about. The fact is that pastors' salaries are directly dependent offerings, so talking about giving is difficult for those of us who don't want to be self-serving. The good news is that supporting a pastor is not the primary reason to give to a church. Certainly, there is Scriptural precedent for compensating ministers (Luke 10:7, 1 Timothy 5:17-18). However, God has a much more comprehensive purpose for giving to the His Kingdom. Here are a few reasons why giving is valuable:
Tithing (10%) was a part of the Old Testament Law, something we are no longer under. It seems that God used the concept of giving 10% as a tool for teaching trust. In the New Testament, giving was an act of trust that was completely dependent on the direction of God and not under obligation. Rather than see giving as a legalistic requirement, God encourages us to give cheerfully in accordance with what He has led us to give and how we have committed (2 Corinthians 9:7). We advise raying for God's direction and give accordingly.
