Thus, we are positioned like never before to reach more people for Christ and to equip our congregation to be passionate followers of Jesus Christ. Through the Freedom Campaign, we are endeavoring to eliminate our debt so that we may see God’s work continue in our family as we Go…Grow & Sow to build His kingdom here in Dothan and beyond.
Freedom – Go…Grow…Sow is a churchwide spiritual emphasis where we are asking each and every member to prayerfully consider and commit to the future ministries of our church, expanding our reach locally and globally for the gospel.
Each year, $530,000 of our total budget is allocated toward payment of the loans we secured for the improvements and renovations that have been made over the last 15 years. We have been meeting this obligation faithfully. We have excellent loan terms, but now is the time to commit together for the next 3 years to eliminate the $6.7M debt.
As a result of this campaign, our church will be Free to do
the ministry that God has called us to, in new and unprecedented ways.
Ridgecrest has a compassionate heart, and the Freedom of not being encumbered by debt will enable us to further demonstrate, through a variety of ministries, God’s love and compassion for those who have never met Him. Freedom means that we can Go anywhere and anyway God directs. Freedom means that we can Grow in our ministries to Reach, Build and Connect people to God’s grand purpose for their lives. And Freedom means that we can Sow the seeds of God’s redeeming love for our kids, grandkids and future generations. That is why this campaign is so significant to our work for God. And it is all about staying strong and continuing the mission that God gave to Ridgecrest over six decades ago. In other words, this campaign will pave the way for Freedom to Go, Grow & Sow like never before…and all for the glory of God!
