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. 

I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.                                                       I Corinthians 9:23

Our Giving Funds Described

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

BEREAN FUND
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
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

Tithe.ly is Berean's donation processing platform. Our security through Tithe.ly 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.

What is REACH?

REACH is Berean’s ministry for achieving the mission of taking the gospel beyond the immediate “reach” of one building by opening Berean campuses in multiple locations, also known as multisite growth. This ministry is supported by the REACH Fund, which is designated for new campus expansion. REACH funds are used for expansion, not day-to-day operations of established campuses.

What is multisite?

Multisite is one church that meets in multiple locations under one vision, one leadership team, and one budget. How does this expand gospel impact? By opening multisite campuses in communities where we already have a large number of attendees, we have the opportunity to grow because it is easier for them to attend, as well as invite friends and neighbors who live near them. Each site carries Berean’s DNA because we are starting this new venture with people already committed to the mission.

What is the timeline?

REACH was first introduced in 2016 and will continue to be a part of Berean’s vision indefinitely. We intend to preach the good news to the ends of the earth, and this is one strategy to achieve that mission.

What can I do?

We want our entire faith family to be connected to the mission as we work to expand our gospel impact throughout the south metro, beyond our local communities, and to the world. Therefore, we ask that you prayerfully consider partnering with us in this mission.
