Why Give?

New Hope is passionate about fulfilling the Great Commission. One of the practical ways to fulfill the Great Commission is by our faithful stewardship of God's resources.  In light of the generosity God has shown to us, we have the joyful privilege to be generous with what we are given and use our resources to further His Kingdom.

The Bible has abundant instruction on generosity.  Here are a few key verses that describe what it looks like to be a generous giver.
The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifullywill also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Corinthians 9:12
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
Acts 20:35
The wicked borrows but does not pay back,
   but the righteous is generous and gives;
Psalm 37:21
the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
Romans 12:8

How Much Should I Give?
In the Old Testament, the Bible was clear that the expectation was a tithe (10% of one’s increase.) Those who didn’t tithe were considered to be “robbing from God.” In the New Testament, it seems that tithing was a normal occurrence (the Pharisees were careful to tithe even their spices.)
The Apostle Paul’s instruction to the church in 2 Corinthians 9:7 was “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion.”
At New Hope, we believe that the tithe is a good rule of thumb as a starting point, but more importantly, we believe that all of us should be generous givers, just as God has generously given us His blessings. What does that look like in your life to be generous?
Where does My Money Go?
(1) A portion of our regular offerings goes to support the families of our pastors and staff.
(2) 17% of all offerings are distributed to missions, locally and globally
(3) New Hope believes in giving ministry away, so, some funds go to things like The Promise Production and The Christmas Journey, which have been, and will continue to be, free to our community. When we charge for an event, it’s always just enough to cover direct expenses, so, your gifts always provide the staff and facilities to do ministry.
(4) Another portion goes to upkeep and maintenance of the Traverse City Campus as well as rental of facilities in Bellaire. Note–New Hope does not use any regular tithes/offerings to build or improve facilities.
What does it mean that New Hope is a Debt-Free Ministry?
New Hope has never borrowed money for any purpose. Because we don’t carry debt, we can do more ministry. We believe that the Lord is able to provide the resources needed to do the ministry He calls us to. We try to move forward according to His timing.
Is Online Giving Safe?
