THROUGH YOUR FAITHFULNESS AND GOD’S FAVOR
Last year we presented four big initiatives. What God did through you was incredible.

DISCIPLESHIP & DEVELOPMENT
School of Leadership Grads

VIVE Group Leaders
Love SV is our local missions initiative.
This year we partnered with thirteen Bay Area non-profits and mobilized 173 volunteers across them.
Project VIVE is our first multi-year building campaign that will go towards bricks and mortar for a purchase of a broadcast location. We know this is in the realm of $30-50M, but it’s not about equal giving, it’s about equal sacrifice. Sow your seed into the future of VIVE Church for generations to come.
VIVE Oakland will be campus number four of the 5×5 vision. We will be launching VIVE UNDERGROUND worship services in November 2016, building up to an official launch on August 2017. In combination with VIVE Oakland, we will be upgrading our broadcast campus equipment to serve all of our receiving locations with a high quality livestream experience.
VIVE People is our 2017 initiative to capture stories within our church across all locations. In the past, we’ve done billboards to help establish the church through creative outreach. Capturing stories through video and sharing online is the new billboard. Every story for God’s glory. Digital outreach through inreach. Revealing God through you, the people of VIVE.
BE PART OF VISION 2017
We would love for you to prayerfully consider what God is calling you to commit over a twelve-month pledge above and beyond the tithe. We know that faith is in the stretch and our desire is that we would stretch together as a church, believing that God could use us to see the vision fulfilled.

Can I give in Vision Builders instead of Tithing?
The Vision Offering should be seen as giving “above and beyond” and separate from the tithe.
Can I allocate stocks to VIVE Church?
Yes, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to set this up.
What is the Tithe?
We believe the tithe is the first ten percent of your income to the storehouse (the church). Malachi 3:10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!”
How do we know where the money goes?
Funds are spent in accordance with the initiatives presented and a mid year update will be provided for all Vision Builders including an end of year report. Our annual financial statements are compiled by an independent, outside CPA to ensure compliance in operating as a non-profit and are available upon request.
