Unstoppable Frequently Asked Questions
First and foremost, we are asking you pray and seek God’s leading on what He is asking of you. Prepare your heart to hear Him, and then listen to what He says. Engage in a Growth Group during this season, if you haven’t already. Spend time in personal reflection with God in the Unstoppable booklet you receive. Talk with your spouse, your family, or others about what this commitment will mean for this next exciting season of your life. We are asking that you make a sacrificial commitment to gospel-centered generosity whatever it is that God leads you to do. Follow His leading. Finally, we ask that you prepare to be amazed. It is an awesome God we serve. He is moving in huge ways, and we anticipate an unprecedented impact from our collective Unstoppable commitments – something only God can do. Please mark your calendar for Commitment Weekend, April 1 & 2, and prepare to experience a life changing worship service that will forever be remembered as a defining moment for our church and for our own faith.
If we are committing to Unstoppable, how does this change my giving to the general fund, the Good Samaritan Fund, and other special offerings?
During this two-year period, every contribution to God through Impact is a contribution to our Unstoppable initiative. Every aspect of the ministry vision God is calling us towards for the next two years will be funded through Unstoppable. Every gift made will go into the same fund and will be our Unstoppable giving. Therefore, every weekend becomes a day to celebrate and contribute towards what God is doing in us and through us to help call people to an Impact with Jesus Christ. Funds like Power of $1 and the Good Samaritan fund will now be part of our General Fund budget and part of the Unstoppable work God is doing through Impact!
Be creative as you explore ways you and your family can give towards Unstoppable. You might have some stocks, property, vehicles, or other items of that nature. Or you may have some stored resources that God has blessed you with in the past that He just might be calling you to give out of during this time. Please contact if you have questions about non-cash generosity, and we would be happy to help you give in this way.
If you are someone currently seeking to make payments to pay off debt right now, we commend you for making progress on that. And you should continue to do so. We would be happy to help you in this journey. Being in debt does not, however, make someone “excused” from giving. Giving isn’t about what God wants from you; rather, it’s about what God wants for you. So it should be our joy and privilege to give at all times. Please contact us if you need assistance with this or if you would like to speak with a budgeting counselor, and we would be honored to help.
We are asking everyone to make a two-year commitment: 24 months. The fulfillment period for your commitment will begin with our First Big Give
What does that mean for my Unstoppable commitment? Unstoppable is about your total, radical, sacrificial generosity to God’s mission at Impact. We believe that God calls us to action in times of hardship just as much as He does in times of abundance, and that looks different for every person. But Unstoppable is about a heart change - one that is only accomplished by surrendering our lives completely over to God in this area of giving. So that may mean that you are being challenged to sell things, to pick up odd jobs, or even to trust God in faith by making a commitment that you don’t quite know how to fulfill right now but that you believe God will provide for as you seek for ways to sacrifice and work towards that commitment. We would like for 100% of us to be a part of Unstoppable so that we can all be supporting, loving, encouraging, and praying for one another through this spiritually-stretching season at Impact.
Unstoppable was crafted specifically with you in mind. Unstoppable is a “one fund” generosity initiative, meaning that it is different from a traditional capital campaign where you are called to give an extra gift above and beyond your normal giving - thus creating two steps for people who aren’t yet giving. Unstoppable is a call to sacrificial, gospel-centered generosity for absolutely everyone at Impact. If you have never given before, this is your chance to get in the game with a committed sacrifice.
Unstoppable is about the vision for our church and our personal discipleship in giving as followers of Jesus. We believe that the local church is one of the most compelling missions to give towards, and we would really love for you to make Impact your home and join us in Unstoppable. If you are ready for it, this is a perfect time for you to put a stake in the ground and make this your church. We need you on the team! We also invite you to become a member of Impact. Why not attend the next Starting Point Class on your campus?
Great question. People take different spiritual steps at different times. Some people begin praying before they begin attending church. Others begin going to a Growth Group before they begin talking to God in prayer. Giving is another spiritual step, and it comes at different times for different people. One thing is for sure, however. Just like other spiritual disciplines, giving draws us closer to God. And God is calling ALL of us to give. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be - Matthew 6:21. Whether you have taken the spiritual step of following Jesus or not, we would encourage you to still join us in this Unstoppable initiative. We firmly believe it will draw you closer to God and hopefully to a place where you are ready to make the decision to surrender your life and become a devoted follower of Jesus.
