When giving to Berean you may designate your gift, or portions of it, to the following areas:
CHURCH MINISTRIES: This is also known as our General Fund. It supports Berean Kids, Youth, Adults, Preaching, Worship Ministries and all areas of the church requiring a program budget. It also pays utilities, staff payroll, maintenance of our building and property, and everything needed to keep our campuses doing ministry effectively. All undesignated contributions are allocated toward the Church Ministries Fund.
GO MISSIONS: This fund supports local and foreign missionaries, and mission organizations that Berean has committed to support regularly. Only those gifts designated to Go Missions are used for this purpose.
BUILDING FUND: Gifts designated to the Building Fund are used to pay for capital expenses for the church facilities (e.g. parking lot, roof repairs) and is used to pay for mortgage, principal payments, and loan costs as applicable.
BENEVOLENT FUND: The Benevolent Fund is used to provide practical assistance to those in need both at Berean and in the community. This might include monetary assistance, payment for counseling services, camp scholarships, and more.
REACH: Gifts given to REACH support the initiative to expand our gospel impact through the addition of multisite campuses and through expanding our current facility. More information here>>
