2022 RECAP & 2023 FUTURE PLANS
Following is a brief synopsis of what we have done this year as a ministry, providing you with the information you need to continue or even increase your financial partnership with us so we can end the year strong!
In 2022, we took a leap of faith with our current facility that we share with six other kingdom-minded ministries. We increased the internet speed for the live streaming of our services and conferences and helped bless them with over $3,500 above our rent for facility repairs. We also increased our staff by bringing on three critical ministry positions in Children's ministry, tech, worship, and senior staff. This decision has been an incredible blessing. It has allowed us to expand our outreach to families, the city, and our ever-expanding connections with Hubs in other states. This leap of faith was almost $10,000 (WELL worth it).
We could directly bless the people of Israel for $2,000. In addition, we launched our first annual conference on "Living the Five-fold Life," and it was a unique and powerful time of equipping. We put this event together for a net expense of $3,500. We also held our annual Passover Dinner in the historic Roe v Wade courtroom in Dallas, TX. This year we took on the total costs of this event and invested $2,000 above our ticket costs to keep the costs down and fill the room. Our goal, as always, was to lift the sacrifice of Jesus and the cause of life. In addition, we responded to several opportunities to extend our reach and spiritual authority beyond our local fellowship in the Metroplex to the state of Texas. The states of Mississippi, Michigan, New York, and Washington D.C. Additionally, through Abraham and Sheila this year, we expanded into India, with costs totaling over $5,000. Finally, as we now do every year, we took our total tithes from November 2021. We poured them into our community at the homeless community of Fort Worth, a local homeless ministry, and the Fort Worth Women's Clinic (supporting life). Our other benevolence expenses this year have been almost $5,000, blessing many others in need.
The Lord has been extremely faithful over our five years in ministry. We have grown, welcomed new families, and said goodbye to others. We have had financial support increase, even while some significant support moved away from The Hub DFW. We are poised to launch our teaching and training materials in 2023 and only need $8,000 more toward our goal of $18,000 needed (see below for more information)! As you know, we do not have a heavy-handed emphasis on our financial needs, as we implicitly strive to trust the Lord in every area. We trust God to raise an additional $25,000 to catch up and end the year strong. We ask you to seek the Lord and sow your very best seed in this excellent soil to help us finish well.
Please partner with us in giving your time in service, resources, or prayer into our ministry. We thank you in advance and extend a blessing to you no matter what you can do to help us.
