MULTIPLY MISSION THROUGH
We want to multiply our mission through a continued commitment to local ministry. Over the past 100 years, we have been deeply committed to being a church for the community, that strives to meet people where they are and bring them to Jesus. Each week people come from all across the city to our Hammond and Oakleaf locations to encounter worship, the study and application of God’s Word, and the intentional hospitality that we offer to all ages. Over the next two-years we will continue to multiply mission in these key ways:
COME - 5 weekend worship services across campuses
GROW - 78 weekly small groups
SERVE - 7 weekend serve teams
GO -12 local community outreaches
We will continue Local Ministry investment at current levels.
PLAZA PAYDOWN - In 2017, we completed one of the most significant additions to our Hammond campus with the construction of the Connections Plaza. Over the next two years, we will continue to pay down the remaining balance due on this addition.
OAKLEAF BUILDING - In 2022, we plan to plant permanent roots in Oakleaf with the construction of a church building for our Oakleaf congregation.
MANDARIN CAMPUS - We are exploring plans with an existing church that would like to become a new Trinity campus.
OAKLEAF BUILDING RENDERINGS - In the last 7 years, Oakleaf has seen more than 4,000 guests come through their doors to hear the gospel. Building a permanent facility will allow the Oakleaf location to accommodate over 1,000 people in weekend worship and move them out of a portable rented facility.
Our 2-Year Ministry Expansion increase is $720,000.
Global missions has been a passion of our church since its inception. Over the years we have partnered with hundreds of missionaries and church planters and sent many out from our church. We currently support over 80 missionaries and agencies operating on 5 continents and in over 30 different countries. In the last 5 years alone, we have sent 15 families out of our church into missions regionally and globally.
Over the next two years we want to both deepen and expand our global impact and outreach. We hope to do that by:
- Deepening our commitment with our most strategic partnerships
- Sending 24 teams on mission trips
- Investing in projects that will help our missionaries get the gospel to unreached people groups
- Committing 10% of all giving to global outreach
Our 2-Year Global Missions increase is $240,000.
As God blesses us as individuals and as a ministry, we bear a responsibility to use our resources wisely. Our church has experienced uncommon longevity because previous generations practiced financial stewardship in a sustainable way. Our desire is to begin preparing today for ministry that will impact the generations to come at our church.
FINANCIAL RESERVES & IMPROVEMENTS
Over the next two years, we will commit 10% of our giving toward financial reserves and facility repair and replacement. This will strengthen our financial sustainability and provide resources for future improvement and expansion.
Our 2-Year Strategic Stewardship increase is $240,000.
JOURNEY OF GENEROSITY
Generosity is a journey for each of us. The generosity God demonstrates toward us should manifest itself in acts of generosity in our own lives. In order to provide for this two-year vision, we are asking every person in our church to prayerfully consider taking one of the three steps listed below in their journey of generosity.
