Uncharted

In December 2016, we started a two-year UNCHARTED journey to trust God with faith beyond the horizon.

Our primary goal has always been to have 100 percent of our people trust Jesus with their generosity through UNCHARTED. Many of you stepped up to that challenge, and we now have 926 commitments to the UNCHARTED initiative!

Our secondary goal was to raise $35 million over two years and you stepped up, and $34.2 million was committed to UNCHARTED! I am so excited to share some of the projects we’ve been able to start because of your generosity. This year, we have increased the goal to $38 million to allow us to increase our mission both locally and globally!

I love hearing stories of your personal UNCHARTED journey because that is that is the heart of this initiative. I am so proud of the faith our family has shown so far in UNCHARTED, and I am truly anticipating a great end to this UNCHARTED journey. God is going to do great things in and through the people of Compass. The best is yet to come!

AS WE EMBARK ON THIS SEASON OF GENEROSITY TO DECLARE GOD AS NUMBER ONE IN OUR LIVES, WE’RE PRAYING AND ASKING HIM FOR:


EVERY PERSON

who calls Compass their church home to make a declaration of generosity, resulting in 100% PARTICIPATION.

$38M IN GENEROSITY

over the next year to further God’s Kingdom and navigate thousands of people to God.

The goal of UNCHARTED is to follow the Holy Spirit boldly into new areas where we wouldn’t normally have gone. With one mission and one fund, we are determined to reach as many people as we possibly can who are far from Christ.

God is calling us to trust with faith beyond the horizon, move forward without fear, and expand ministry for His glory.

Join us on this journey as we delve more deeply into the Uncharted and live out our faith beyond the horizon in the following initiatives:

BEYOND OUR BORDERS | EXPANDED FROM $6M TO $7M

We wouldn’t be Compass if we did not accelerate what we do for the world. In this two-year initiative, we believe God is challenging us as a church to give the largest amount we have ever given to missions both locally and globally.
  • Expand relationships with existing mission partners
  • Grow in our commitment to external missions by more than 50%
  • Invest in our next local campuses – mobile equipment, rent, facilities, staff
  • Invest in local community – schools, efforts to help kids

BEYOND OUR WALLS | EXPANDED FROM $13M TO $14M

We want to unleash the ministry of Jesus EVERY DAY. So we need facilities to train today’s church and to reach today’s city and generation. When we eliminate debt on our current facilities, we are positioned to make a greater impact in needs for our community and church.
  • Pay off Roanoke facility within two years of opening
  • Eliminate all debt at Compass Center and Compass Fields
  • Provide capital improvements to Colleyville campus, etc.
  • Provide capital for new parking lots in Roanoke due to tremendous growth since opening in December 2016

BEYOND OURSELVES | EXPANDED FROM $16M to $17M

This is our general ministry budget, but it is anything but general! These funds are used to fuel life-changing ministries like Compass Kids, Compass Students, Community Groups, Rooted and everything else that aids us in navigating everyday people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Compass is not an institution. We are a people on mission, connecting with others. We want to continue to grow in that way.
  • Continue to invest in all areas of ministry in all campuses
  • Provide for growth as Compass attendance has increased by 18% in the last year

FOR THOSE NEW TO THE UNCHARTED JOURNEY,

this is the starting line for boldly giving in faith. Prayerfully consider what gift to UNCHARTED would honor God as a bold step of faith.

FOR THOSE ALREADY ON THE UNCHARTED JOURNEY,

this is a chance to renew your commitment and respond to God’s faithfulness. Commit to finish strong in your UNCHARTED commitment or, as you feel led, increase your commitment.

ONE FUND INITIATIVE

You may have been part of church campaigns in the past where you were asked to give a second gift ‘above and beyond’ your usual gifts to complete special projects. At Compass these have been used to make new buildings and ministries possible. Normally, you gave that gift to the “Building Fund” and you also continued to give to the “General Fund.” This type of giving is potentially confusing to people who either don’t have a baseline for their “usual giving” or who aren’t able to really celebrate the total giving at Compass in one single number. We believe we’re all on ONE MISSION - the mission of navigating people to God.
