What is Vision Builders?

The Bible says in Proverbs 29:18, “Where there is no vision, the people perish...” At C3 Church our “vision” is to be a community influencing church where people find faith, hope, and love! There are literally thousands of people in Greater Lawrenceville and Gwinnett County that have not discovered a relationship with God, and we want to change that. We do this by becoming a Vision Builder!

A Vision Builder is someone who has set their hearts and minds on things above to help advance the Kingdom of God on earth. They accomplish this by prayerfully bringing their resource/finance into the house of God and generously give “above and beyond” their current level of giving. While tithes and offerings help finance the operations of church life, we ask Vision Builders to go “above and beyond” (their tithe) to help fund the GROWTH of the church. This kind of sacrificial giving is how C3 Church will continue to fulfill its vision of influencing our community. Ultimately, Vision Builders is a capital stewardship program designed to help members of C3 Church take practical and tangible steps in connecting with a greater sense of purpose and mission with the church and in their spiritual walk.

Vision Builders FAQ

Why are we doing the Vision Builders campaign?
There are many people in our local community (and beyond) who do not yet know Jesus, and it’s our vision to become a community influencing church that brings people into the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Can the church count my tithe (or other giving) as my contribution toward the Vision Builders campaign?
Unfortunately, no. Capital stewardship campaigns rely on church members aligning their hearts and minds on things above, thereby offering gifts that go “over and above” their present level of giving.

How long do I have to complete my commitment for Vision Builders?
While we ask that you maintain your commitment for at least one year, being a Vision Builder means you’ve taken the step to financially contribute on an on-going basis. We will stop when you tell us to stop!

Are my contributions to Vision Builders tax-deductible?
Yes. All Vision Builders contributions will be reflected on your year-end giving statement at the end of each calendar year. You may request a tax receipt at any time by contacting the finance department at C3 Church.

Can my commitment be revised?
Absolutely. Your commitment can be revised should you deem that circumstances can’t allow you to continue with your pledge commitment.

Making Your Commitment

All giving creates the potential for God's blessings in our life. As we have seen from many testimonies in our church, giving to build the House of God with a free and generous spirit creates the potential for increased blessing. All giving with the right heart and attitude is important to God, but giving to build God's house opens the way for added blessings.

Prayerfully consider your level of giving. Your decision should be based on both wisdom and faith:

  • Wisdom from the Holy Spirit as to the level of commitment that you can sensibly achieve. 
  • Faith to make a pledge that will stretch you and its achievement.

Ways to Give

Pledge Giving
While there are several ways to fulfill your commitment, experience has shown that most members who fill their commitment do so by making regular weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly contributions in offerings or through direct-debit transactions. Our pledge cards or offering envelopes are available in each service. Completing the pledge card or the offering envelope and marking it ‘Vision Builders’ will ensure that proper credit is given.

One-Time Giving
Many people are able to make a one-time gift from money currently available or through the sale of assets.

Direct-Debit Transactions
Automated weekly, biweekly, or monthly credit and debit card transactions can be set up through the church finance office or personal banking institutions. One time credit or debit transactions may also be done online..
