Welcome to Rise Up – our discipleship initiative and capital campaign focused on the themes of generosity, unity and legacy across our church family. Our goal is to have 100 percent engagement from our church family in raising $10 million above and beyond our Ministry fund for our Expansion fund from the Fall of 2019 and scheduled to conclude at year-end of 2021. These funds will be used for two key projects that will strengthen what has already been built through decades of dedication and answering God’s calling for our church:
THROUGH NEW CHURCH CONSTRUCTION - $9.5 MILLION
God has enabled us to purchase eight acres of undeveloped land on Rt 59 in Naperville to use as the new permanent home of our South Naperville Campus.
This campus was started in 2010 and has grown to be 500 people in attendance per weekend in a leased space. We want to rise up and build a building that can serve 1,000 more people and be useful for decades to come! This building will enable us to do significant ministry in South Naperville seven days a week and to multiply the life transformation capacity of this campus.
THROUGH OUR HERE, NEAR & FAR PARTNERSHIPS - $500,000
Through Here, Near & Far partnerships, we have a significant stake in helping our local cities, our country and around the world. Here are some of our goals:
Community Impact ministry - more care outreach in Naperville, Wheaton, Bolingbrook and our surrounding cities
CompassNational ministry - strengthen and help start new churches in Chicago and Detroit
CompassGlobal ministry - continue seeking to start new churches in the country of Bhutan, the city of Kolkata, India and a limited-access nation in Central Asia
Right now, we are developing and deepening relationships with specific church planters in each of these cities and countries in order to come alongside them in ministry.
