Our Statement on Money
This ministry is reliant on the Holy Spirit and Christ alone for everything. We will rely on God to provide all of our needs according to His riches and glory. Time is more important than money. God does not need our money: He wants our time. We will remain sustainable for a long period of time by being committed to serving Christ regardless of the amount of money that we have.
We have seen God do a great work without money. A work of God may use money, but it will not depend on it for the work. If the work depends on money, it cannot depend on God. We will never incur any debt. Our budget will be based on the amount of money we have in the bank. All over head expenses are very minimal and covered by our staff, board, and local church. As a result, any contributions that come in to The Rock from outside will be used 100% directly towards the ministry outreach and advancement. Donations will go towards food, clothing, Christmas presents, future ministry center location, education and tutoring, expansion of The Rock beyond Rockville, or other areas that will directly impact children and families who need hope. All of our services are offered freely. Freely we recieve, freely we give all that we have.
If you would like to participate in giving to this ministry, we ask that you follow these guidelines and questions first. We are seeking to follow the example of Christ in matters pertaining to money.
Are you a part of a local church? If yes, are you giving regularly to that church? Giving to a ministry such as The Rock should be considered an offering, beyond any tithes or regular giving to the church you are a part of. We recommend that you give to your church first, then, if the Lord leads you give to The Rock next.
Are you giving freely and cheerfully? God loves a cheerful giver, and does not want you to give out of pressure or reluctantly.
Have you earned the money you are giving honestly? Are you up to date on your bills? God wants us to earn an honest wage, pay our taxes, and meet our other obligations. This way, you can give with a clear conscience. He does not need your money. Remember: We believe God may use money for His work, but He does not need money for His work.
If you have read this statement on money and would like to give towards the work at The Rock, we are humbled and blessed that you have chosen to support us.
