What is the Believing For More Initiative?

We believe that God has more for PaulAnn Church. There are more people to reach, more children to care for, more marriages to repair, more families to impact, and more lives to be introduced to Jesus Christ. In order to adequately minister to those coming, we need to expand our facilities. We are believing for more: salvations, baptisms, people, and more space.

Believing For More is our intentional church-wide initiative to raise the necessary funds to expand our space. As a church family we will seek God together, allow Him to lead, and then respond by faith to His leading.

Dorothy Mazuk was a founding member of PaulAnn. Her testimony from 10 years ago is enlightening to watch because God has blessed our church to see the vision of our founders come to fruition.

Goals For The Initiative

Engage Our People

When the body of Christ grows, so does our ability to engage the community and the people around us. When the body of Christ grows, so does our realm of influence. When the body of Christ grows, so do our opportunities. This is an exciting time to see growth taking place in our church! This growth and involvement are not just on Sunday mornings. It’s during the week at Community Life Groups, at Celebrate Recovery, at Men’s and Women’s Bible Studies, at youth activities, etc. As we grow, we pray for the resources needed to have the facilities we need to shine a light and engage this community.

Extend Our Reach

How can this growth extend our reach into the community, into neighboring cities, and into the world? From the very beginning of this church, we’ve walked by faith in letting God lead the growth of our church, and now He wants to take us to the next step. We ask God to use these new facilities that we’re planning to build to extend our reach into our local neighborhoods, and into the world through missions. This can be done by having a place where more people can meet to learn, to teach, to grow, to be discipled, to share in community throughout the week, to worship together, to serve together…to be the body of Christ in a building with enough space for everyone.

Expand Our Facilities

Our church has grown. With that comes the practical need for more space. We need more room for our services. We need the right facilities to be able to fit more people in a given space to worship and learn together. We need space so that people can invite their neighbor to church and know that they’ll have a place to sit. We need the proper facilities for the younger generation to come to worship and learn. We need the space and the facilities for our babies and our children to gather to play, worship, and learn. We need the parking spaces for people to come, and have a place to park their vehicle. We need to expand our facilities so that the growth, worship, and learning can continue.

How To Give

We’re asking all people of PaulAnn to undertake a three-step spiritual process. First, pray and surrender, acknowledging that everything you have is from God. Second, listen to God as you ask what He would have you do with the resources He’s entrusted to you – specifically related to Believing For More. Third, obey His direction. If He leads you to participate, plan to make your 3-year financial commitment during Commitment Sunday, April 22nd, and then bring your first offering to Celebration Sunday, April 29th.

Ways To Give

Cash • Check • Credit/debit cards • Online (PushPay)

Commitment Card

When you are ready to make a commitment towards the Believing For More Initiative, you can fill out this card to make your commitment. We will also have printed cards available at the church. On Sunday, April 22, as a church we are going to complete our commitments and submit them during the service. So, if you are going to do your commitment through the online form, please complete it by April 22.

Prayer Emphasis

We feel strongly that the first step that we can each take as we consider our individual involvement in the Believing For More Initiative is to pray. To help with this prayer emphasis, we’ve created a daily prayer guide to follow through this first month of the BFMi.
