Giving

Living generously isn't about money. It's about letting God change you.

Your generosity changes lives – including yours.

We see God at work every day through worship, people, and service.

 

Generosity encompasses everything in our lives—from how we handle our time, skills, energy, and money. While generosity is broader than money, often how we handle our money reveals what’s really important to us. Jesus said what we treasure reveals our hearts.

“‘Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.’”

— MATTHEW 6:19-21

We believe that giving is such an integral part of our spiritual growth that we’ve captured it as part of Gateway’s seven healthy habits for spiritual growth.

Giving FAQs

Are there fees involved with online giving?

Gateway pays a fee of $0.25 per transaction for direct debits. When you contribute by debit or credit card there is a 3% transaction fee charged to Gateway.

I’ve never given before and the idea feels overwhelming.

Start small. Start with where you are. Begin with praying about one small step of faith you could take.

 

Consider checking out Financial Peace University (FPU), which we offer at Gateway on an ongoing basis. FPU is a practical class about taking control of your finances, getting out of debt, planning for your future, and living so that you can give generously.

How does Gateway spend its money?

We want you to feel confident that Gateway faithfully stewards the money and resources it receives. We strive to be transparent, wise, and prayerful in operating our church finances. You should know that Gateway maintains strict confidentiality over giving.

 

Each year, an annual budget is prayerfully prepared and is presented at a community meeting that is open to anyone. Members of Gateway vote to approve the budget. Our budget includes expenses such as building operating costs, payroll expenses, and the costs of running ministries such as KidzTown, youth, and local and international missions.

 

We deeply desire to steward our finances in a trustworthy way that each person is able to focus on what God is calling him or her to give with confidence that it will be used wisely to further the kingdom of God.

What organizations or missionaries do you support?

Missions are a priority at Gateway. Big or small, we believe God calls us to serve those in need. We support a variety of missionaries and mission efforts, both local and international. To see a list of the people and organizations we support, please visit our missions page on our central hub.
