FAQs

Why are we doing this?

Three years ago, we embarked on the MORE initiative, and wow! God did more through more financial gifts to PCC than we imagined! We learned that seeking God’s direction for our church for two years and moving forward with faith and sacrifice dramatically changed our church and countless lives around us. Now, we have a new vision, and we can’t wait to see what God’s going to do over the next two years!

How long is my commitment?

BEYOND is a two-year initiative and will run through November 2024. We encourage you to fulfill your commitment with gifts of whatever size and frequency that make the most sense for you within the time frame.

What are the dates, and when will I make a commitment? When do I start giving?

The public phase of BEYOND is October 23 through November 13. At church on November 13, everyone will make their commitments. We are calling it Commitment Sunday!

Then, we have two weeks to get everything in order, so that we can give our first gifts to BEYOND on Sunday, November 27.

Is this part of my regular giving?

Giving to BEYOND through the One Fund means that everything—our operating budget, ministry and missions work, and campuses—will all be funded through this initiative. It’s an opportunity to trust God and take the next right step in your generosity. So yes, everything you give is a part of the BEYOND initiative.

What if I am new or have never given to PCC?

Generosity is all about taking the next right step, so if you’ve never given before, BEYOND is a great place to start. We believe there’s no more significant mission than helping people find hope in Jesus, and we invite everyone to live it out with us. See the Giving Steps section of this guidebook (page 29) for more information.

Why fill out a commitment card?

The card represents a way for you to consider how God wants to use you to help more people find hope. It’s more than just a number; it’s a symbol of your commitment to what God is doing in your life and in the lives of others. When we commit together, it will help us celebrate AND it will help us plan responsibly.

What are other ways to give?

Many will give out of their income, generously making the BEYOND initiative a priority on a weekly or monthly basis. However, you can also give things like stocks, real estate, or other assets. There could also be substantial tax benefits to giving an asset instead of selling it and giving the proceeds. Contact our central office at 804-598-1174 for more information on these ways to give to BEYOND.

How can I give?

We have several options for giving. The easiest option is to give online at pccwired.net/give, or through the PCC App that is available on all mobile devices. You can give one time or set up recurring giving there. Giving boxes are also located around each campus and available anytime you visit. Lastly, you can mail in your gifts to PCC at P.O. Box 834, Powhatan, VA 23139.

This is a lot of money! Why are we going for such a bold goal?

Yes, it is. 200,000 is a big number too, and that’s the number of people around our current campuses who aren’t experiencing their fullest lives possible through Jesus Christ right now. We will do whatever it takes to help them come to Know God, Discover Purpose, Get Real, Make a Difference, and Be the Change. Since our annual offering income is already $3.5 million, if we just continued doing what we’ve been doing, then we would have given $7 million over the next two years. The BEYOND initiative raises that by just under an additional $1.5 million, which will enable us to reach more of those 200,000 people.

What happens if we don’t meet our goal? Will we go into debt?

We’re committed to doing what God calls us to do, even if the timeline or scope changes from our original expectations. Likewise, we’re committed to stewarding the resources God provides us in a way that’s appropriate, living within our means. We will not add any unhealthy debt as a result of BEYOND. PCC’s Steering Team and Strategic Leadership Team are in place to ensure we remain financially sound.

How does BEYOND impact our commitment to outreach?

We partner with a number of local organizations serving under-served people in our area, as well as dozens of global staff sharing the gospel around the world. BEYOND will take outreach…well…BEYOND just these partnerships, to expand our staff with a full time Do Good Director, bring back Impact Days, and pilot new community partnerships and programs to help the underserved kids, students and families around our campuses.
