Our goal for Fuel 2023 is to raise $150,000. Here are the ways your generosity will help Northpoint next year:

Strategic Projects - $55,000

In the last 3 years, the landscape of church has changed across our country, and more people than ever identify as not being affiliated with religion of any kind. One of things that has become abundantly clear: if we're going to make Jesus relevant for everyone in greater Austin, we have to go where they are. As a result, we've been making great strides in two strategic areas in 2022 as a result of your generosity.

Marketplace Initiatives - Our hope is to be so integrated into our community that we'd be missed if we were gone, regardless of what people believe spiritually. In 2022 we began to partner with many organizations in our community to be able to leverage our incredible facility. As a result we have seen over 3,500 people who perhaps would never have stepped foot in a church come into our facility. As a result we have heard so many remarkable stories of people who came to Northpoint after attending a marketplace event. Today Northpoint is their home and Jesus is more relevant in their lives today than ever before. In 2023 we want to continue our efforts with Marketplace, which we now have rebranded Exchange ATX (exchangeatx.com) and hear more stories of life change. We are needing to continue to build out the online infrastructure, improve several areas of our facility with furniture and technology and continue to build and staff the Exchange ATX team. All of these activities will in turn be revenue-generating for Northpoint.

Digital Initiatives - The average Austinite spends 4 hours a day on personal technology, and we want to figure out how we can get 5 minutes a day in everyone's pocket. In 2022 we took a big step towards seeing that become a reality with Story512 (story512.com). In just the last 9 months, we've accumulated more than four times the number of followers and more views with Story512 and our other digital efforts than we have combined as a church over the last 13 years. The stories we are hearing of individuals all throughout our city who have engaged Story512 and are now interested in either taking a next step or finding out more have been remarkable to be part of. In 2023 we want to continue to fuel our digital ministry to engage a group of people who otherwise would not engage in church. These funds will help us with content production, purchasing some additional media equipment, and with advertising, marketing, and distribution of content.

The Next Generation - $45,000

We believe that if Jesus is ever going to be relevant for everyone in greater Austin, it will be the next generation that's going to do it. From the start, we've set out to plant the anchor of faith so deep in the heart of our kids and students that nothing will ever pull it away. That if we're going to call them significant, we have to give them something significant to do. But as all parents know, kids and teenagers eat a lot, they destroy a lot, and maintaining the level of excellence we desire in our family ministry environments requires a lot of intentionality. In 2023, our goal is to replace some of our worn out furniture in multiple environments, fund our college interns with Camp 75 as well as provide scholarships to students for Camp 75, and create a "wow" factor that brings family ministry events from great to amazing.

Care - $20,000

Every year, we have unique opportunities to do for one what we wish we could do for everyone. This includes helping with counseling, rent payments, medical bills, and basic necessities like food and utilities, and even educational expenses for people in need. Requests for assistance have increased exponentially over the last 12 months, and filling this fund allows us to respond when needs arise.

Giving Gaps - $30,000

2022 has been a year we have all felt the inflationary impact. That’s been especially true with Northpoint in the areas of utility cost and supplies for ministry events and trainings. As a result we have incurred a $30,000 financial gap that we need to address to stay financially healthy with our reserves as a church. As we move forward into 2023 we have adjusted our budget to reflect the inflationary impact.

Between now and the end of the year, we want to encourage you to invite God into your end-of-year giving plans. We'd also love for you to join us in praying for each of these areas as we move into the new year. We can't wait to see the amazing ways God uses your generosity to impact our church and our community in 2022!If you have any questions about Fuel, we'd love to hear from you!
