Giving Out of Gratitude

We give to the ministry at Berean out of gratitude to our heavenly Father who lavishes gifts on us. When we give financially, our money provides facilities for people to hear the gospel, teachers to teach the Bible, and various methods to send out the gospel to our community and world.

Our Giving Funds Described

When giving to Berean you may designate your gift, or portions of it, to the following two areas.

The Berean Fund supports the mission of Berean across all four ministry areas: gather, grow, give and go. This encompasses funding all ministry programming and preaching and teaching the gospel (gather and grow), as well as paying for necessities such as utilities, staffing, building maintenance, and mortgages. Benevolence assistance for those in need is budgeted within this fund (give), as is local and global Missions (go). The Berean Fund receives all undesignated contributions.

REACH funds help expand our gospel “reach” to the community through building expansion and multisite campuses. Our Lakeville campus launched a portable site in October 2016 and plans to open a permanent location in 2020. Our Inver Grove Heights campus will be opening in the spring of 2020. Planning is underway for a fourth campus.

Give Securely is Berean's donation processing platform. Our security through is on par with leading financial services and banking institutions. Transactions are transmitted using 256-bit TSL/SSL and card data only touches Level 1 PCI-DSS compliant systems. Card details are tokenized, stored, and encrypted on industrial-grade servers.
