Starting January 5th
As we pursue our vision to purchase land and build our future, our goal for 2020 is to strengthen our church financially so we can be cash ready for a quick closing when opportunity knocks to purchase land. We will need approximately $600,000 in cash to close. To date, we have over $200,000 set aside in our land fund that has already been given through the generosity of others.
As we begin the new year of 2020, imagine what God could do through all of us if everyone participated by giving over and above their regular tithes and offerings by year-end? The only goal we have through our Imagine Initiative is to receive 100% participation from those who call ReThink Life their church home. It’s not about equal gifts as much as it is equal sacrifice. As a church, the pace of our vision is 100% dependent upon the pace of our giving.
Please pray about making a 1-year financial commitment that will be used to help accelerate our vision so we can be ready to open the door when opportunity knocks. We are asking everyone to ask God would He would them give and bring their intended amount by using the Imagine 2020 pledge card and drop it in the offering on January 26th.
You can also participate by fulfilling your pledge at any time by giving a one time gift or setting up recurring gifts online.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and for stacking hands with us as we go all in to pursue the vision God has for us.
I WANT TO MAKE YOUR MARK IN 2020. WHAT’S MY NEXT STEP?
Make a 1-year commitment that will be used to make a mark on our future.
Ask God what He would have you do over and above your tithe toward Imagine 2020.
Respond out of obedience and faith.
Know your sacrifices and generosity will help accelerate our vision and help impact generations to come.
How Much Land Are We Looking For?
We would like to purchase a minimum of 8-10 acres that is usable for future growth and zoned for commercial or industrial usage. Depending if the potential land is in the county or city, we must be able to receive approval for religious and institutional purposes.
Where Are We Looking?
The Lake Nona area is growing rapidly in every direction. The ideal is to be located in the southeast region located in close proximity to the airport, and major roadways for accessibility and visibility.
Is A Ground Lease A Possibility?
We would prefer to purchase land outright. However, we are not opposed to a long-term ground lease depending upon terms and agreements.
Will we payoff the land before building?
The ideal is to pay for the land in full in order to leverage the asset toward a construction loan for the building. It really depends on the purchase amount of the property and the pace of our giving.
WHY IMAGINE 2020?
Our Imagine 2020 initiative is all about accelerating or vision to purchase land or acquire land and build a permanent home for ReThink Life Church. The pace of our vision is 100% dependent upon the pace of our giving and generosity. It’s a big vision, and it is only attainable if we are ALL IN. It takes teamwork to make the dream work. All God is asking us to do is take the next step in the journey. One step forward. ALL IN. All of our individual steps in unison will look like one giant leap into the exciting future that God has for us. Imagine what kind of impact we can have on people’s lives that will make an eternal difference for generations to come.
We want everyone to experience the blessing of living ALL IN in your spiritual journey with Jesus. There is nothing greater than walking hand in hand with our Father in absolute faith and trust! We want you to take a step forward in your faith-walk, and that cannot happen unless you are ALL IN.
WHAT’S THE GOAL OF IMAGINE 2020?
Our goal is for everyone to take the next step on the spiritual journey God has set before each of us in the area of giving. Our goal is two-fold.
1. Take a step toward honoring God with the tithe (10%) and making it a priority to give Him our first and our best with our income in 2020.
2. To give generously over and above the tithe to help accelerate the vision of ReThink Life Church through weekly/monthly contributions that will be set aside toward our future land fund. If we all take a step forward in our spiritual journey of faithful giving, we will not only strengthen our church financially, but we will also position ourselves financially to be “cash ready” to respond when the opportunity knocks.
Example: If land is selling for $250,000 per acre and our goal is to purchase 10 acres, it will cost us $2,500,000 to purchase 10 acres of land. To finance the purchase, banks will require a minimum of 25% in cash to bring as a down payment to close on the property. Therefore, we will need approximately $625,000 in cash to close on the property.
