Why Give?

Giving financially is a way for all of us to participate in what God is doing right here in our own communities, as well as around the world. Your giving helps meet the physical and spiritual needs of thousands of people who attend one of our Austin campuses, as well as our Online campus each week. You’re also impacting people and communities in India, Africa, and Haiti through our global partnerships. We appreciate you joining us in our mission. Your faithful contributions help bring life and freedom to individuals around the globe.

What’s New with our Giving Platform

We have a NEW online giving platform!  Before creating any new recurring donations on the new platform, cancel any existing recurring donations, if applicable.


Using our new giving system will significantly reduce the credit card and ACH fees paid from your donations. You also have the opportunity to optionally cover credit card or ACH fees, allowing us to use all those savings to impact more people locally and globally with the life and freedom that comes from Jesus. When you donate, if you choose to give by ACH (using your checking account information instead of credit card information), there are extra benefits:

  • Fees are significantly lower than credit card fees, which will provide even more funds for our ministries.
  • Should you be a repeat giver, you will not need to update credit card details when the number changes or the card expires.
