– Pray –

Pray both individually and as a household. Ask God to help you understand how He would have you, as a manager of His bounty, financially support this campaign and that He would give you the faith to do so.

– Seek –

Refer to the Gift Schedule Chart below and think about these questions:

1. What amount of money, over the next three years, do I desire and believe God will provide for me to give? (1 Corinthians 16:2; 2 Corinthians 9: 5a, 10-11)

2. Am I joyous about giving this amount? (2 Corinthians 9:7)

3. Am I demonstrating an expression of my faith in God with this amount with the motivation of worshiping God and showing my thankfulness? (2 Corinthians 8:7,9; 2 Corinthians 9:6-13)

– Confirm –

Once you feel the Lord has led you to a decision, discuss it, if applicable, with your spouse. When you are comfortable that God is leading you, offer prayers of gratitude for the guidance you have received and look forward with joy to the blessing of investing in ADVANCE. If clarity about your level of giving eludes you, continue to pray about it and seek counsel from other godly people.

– Commit –

Be open to the continued leading of the Holy Spirit, as God may stretch your faith one day at a time as you go through the campaign. Recognize this may well require adjustments to your lifestyle or budget; if so, make financial arrangements as necessary.

Each one should give what they have decided in their heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work 2 Corinthians 9:7-8

This commitment schedule below is for quick calculation of monthly and yearly giving. No one should feel confined to this schedule.
