Our current total for the NEXT Campaign now stands at close to $9,500,000. For the final $500,000 matching challenge, $216,000 has been given toward the match so far. Once the challenge has been matched, we will be over $10M and will have met our threshold goal. Thank you for your generosity!

We are excited that there are more than 900 commitments totaling over $9.4 million so far. It appears that about 80% of congregants that have committed to NEXT have opened the email sent on May 24. If you did not receive the email, please notify Daryl Rice at email@example.com.
Please check your email. We sent an email on May 24 asking everyone who made a commitment to NEXT campaign to ensure that we have logged the correct amount for every commitment we have received to date. If you did not receive the email, please notify Daryl Rice at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited to share that the NEXT Campaign is moving forward! Thank you to all who have prayerfully turned in commitment cards. Here are the details as of May 1, 2019.
Total Commitment Amount To Date: $9.2 million
Total Commitment Cards Submitted: 920
$500,000 Matching Challenge
This challenge was given to the congregation at the $9 million mark of the campaign by a family with the goal of reaching or exceeding the $10 million mark.
Moving Forward, By Faith
With $9.2 million in commitments to date, and a matching challenge that would result in another $1 million, by faith we believe the $10 million mark will be reached. Therefore, the NEXT Leadership Team is developing a plan at a $10 million level. Regular updates to the congregation will follow.
