Thank you for supporting God’s work at South Fellowship and beyond by giving. It’s because of the generosity of people that we can do everything we do. As an ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) member church, we encourage you to give with complete confidence through our Planning Center Giving system. Thank you for your generosity!
GIVING AT SOUTH
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
God is a generous God, and he has called us to be generous people. One of our greatest joys as followers of Jesus is to be a part of what He is doing in the world. We do that by investing our time, our abilities, and our finances. South Fellowship Church is full of people who have given sacrificially and joyfully for many years, and the Kingdom of God has grown because of it. What a joy!
SHARING WITH OUR COMMUNITY
GIVE TO BENEVOLENCE
Our Benevolence Ministry helps meet the short-term financial or practical needs of our church members and the broader community. A team of staff and volunteers work together to respond to needs where we can and refer to partner organizations when needs are outside our ability to help. A gift to the South Fellowship benevolence ministry can help a family cover rent for the month, repair a car in an emergency, or keep the lights on when times are tight.
If you would like to support the work of the Benevolence Team, you can write a check with Benevolence in the memo line or select “Benevolence” in the drop-down menu on the online giving page. We appreciate your support as we work to meet the needs of our community!
Other Ways to Give
South Fellowship is accredited by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, which requires high standards of biblical accountability, board governance, financial transparency, integrity in fundraising, and proper use of charity resources. This membership provides an extra level of accountability, helping demonstrate our adherence to strict guidelines and openness with regards to our finances.
Additional Stewardship Information
- As a leadership team (elders and staff), we make it our goal to be generous with the finances we are entrusted with. We give over 10% of our operating income towards missions (global and local) and we allow 75+ outside organizations to use our facility on an annual basis. There is a cost to using our building in that way, but we believe it’s worth it! in addition, we operate a Food Bank that serves 100-125 people every week. Generosity is part of our DNA.
- We make it our goal to operate with total transparency regarding our books. If you have questions about the way we are spending the money you entrust to the church, please don’t hesitate to ask. We are a part of ECFA (Evangelical Council of Financial Accountability) so that we have an outside organization making sure we are using finances in an appropriate manner.
- Staff salaries comprise roughly 60% of our operating budget. We have made it our goal to hire great staff and to pay them a fair wage. To that end, we review staff salaries annually. We use research compiled by an outside organization that gives a salary range for each position (it considers the geographic location, size of the church, responsibility of the role, etc.). It is our goal to be in middle/upper-middle for each position.
- As elders, we recognize that we will give an account to the Lord for how we use church money. We take that very seriously. Our goal is that every dime and dollar given is used to make much of the name of Jesus!
