This past Sunday, in our 2017 State of the Church Address, we celebrated the unveiling of an exciting new campaign entitled, “Faith2Next.”
More than simply a capital campaign, Faith2Next is a two-pronged effort to empower JCBC for a future with hope.
Our goal is to raise 3.2 million dollars over the course of a three-year period to accomplish two bold initiatives:
- The development of JCBC’s first multiple-venue worship experience.
- The complete and final payoff of JCBC’s remaining debt.
With these two initiatives in place, our church will be postured to live out our calling and expand the JCBC experience like never before.
In the coming days, every member of JCBC will have the opportunity to learn (in great detail) what Faith2Next will mean for our future, and how each family has a crucial role to play, as we all take a new and next step together, in answering the call of God upon the life of this great church.
To that end, I want to urge you to be present in Sunday School on January 22nd and 29th. Over the course of these two Sundays, our Sunday School Communities will have the opportunity to view a specially produced video introducing Faith2Next, and engage in questions and answers about its immense potential.
In the meantime, I want you to know that an effort as significant as Faith2Next requires an army of gifted and committed leaders. These leaders perform a number of functions to ensure our campaign is successful. These functions range from organizing and hosting special events, to making phone calls and communicating vital information in a timely manner
