ALL IN for GENEROSITY

A TWO-YEAR DISCIPLESHIP JOURNEY AT ROOTED FELLOWSHIP ON GENEROSITY

“Therefore, brothers and sisters, in view of the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your true worship. Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.”

Romans chapter 12 verses 1 and 2

Our mission is to see the world awaken to the wonder of God and His transcultural Church. Over the past eight years, Rooted Fellowship has experienced significant impact, with personal and shared stories of God’s grace changing lives. 2024 is the Year of Worship and we would love to see everyone have a deeper experience of God and His promises in their lives.

One day we will have to answer God about how we spent the one life He gave us. What did we do with our time? What did we do with our money? What did we do with our energy? How did we love the people around us?

By presenting your life as a living sacrifice, you will know a life of greater significance. This two-year discipleship journey is meant to push us towards a life of greater surrender. If we want to know what God is calling us to do this next season, our prayer should be that we pursue Him with all our heart and courageously take the steps of faith towards the Good Shepherd, who is Jesus Christ.

WHY WE BELIEVE IN GIVING

We respond to the Gospel by bringing our first and best because God gave His first and best in Jesus.

Paul said this, regarding giving: “I am not saying this as a command. Rather, by means of the diligence of others, I am testing the genuineness of your love. For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ: Though he was rich, for your sake he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich.” 2 Corinthians 8:8-9.

Your cheerful giving continues to help us to carry out the vision and mission to which God has called us, both here in the city of Pretoria and beyond.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS BEING ASKED OF ME IN THE ALL IN FOR GENEROSITY DISCIPLESHIP JOURNEY?

Our number one request is that you seek God’s leading of obedience in your life. Get ready to listen to His voice, and then follow His commands. During this time, join a family group and get plugged into community, because we strongly believe that we have been beautifully designed for fellowship. We are not meant to travel alone on this spiritual journey in relationship with Jesus. Talk with your spouse, your family or others about what this commitment will mean for this next season of your life.

We are asking that you make a sacrificial commitment to Gospel Centred Generosity – whatever it is that God is leading you towards. Follow His leading. Finally, we ask that you prepare to be blown away. It is an awesome God that we serve and He is going to move in huge ways. We anticipate an unprecedented impact from our collective ALL IN for GENEROSITY commitments – something only God can do.

HOW LONG IS MY COMMITMENT?

This is a two-year discipleship journey, with the first commitment being from March 2024 until March 2025. The second year of commitment being from March 2025 until March 2026.

WHAT ABOUT A ONE TIME CAPITAL FUND?

You may have been a part of church giving initiatives in the past where you were asked to give a second gift “above and beyond” your usual gifts to make special initiatives like new buildings and new ministry opportunities possible.

Normally, you gave that gift to a “Building Fund” and you also continued to give tithes and offerings to a “General Fund.”

At Rooted Fellowship, we believe that it is all ONE MISSION that we are on, which is, to see the world awaken to the wonder of God and His transcultural Church.

This ALL IN for GENEROSITY discipleship journey is from March 2024 until March 2026. Over these two years, every gift that is given to Rooted Fellowship will go to all of the three secondary goals of our journey.

WHAT IF I AM CURRENTLY UNEMPLOYED?

ALL IN for GENEROSITY is about your total, radical, and sacrificial generosity to God’s mission, lived out at Rooted Fellowship. We believe that God calls us to obedience in times of hardship just as much as He does in times of abundance, and that looks different for every person. Having said that, what you need to know is that the ALL IN for GENEROSITY journey at its core is about a heart change – one that is only accomplished by surrendering your life completely to God as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to Him, because that is our true worship.

God may be calling you to make a commitment that you don’t quite know how to fulfil right now, but it’s trusting that He will provide for you as you seek ways to move towards your commitment. It is not about the size of the gift, but your obedience towards what God is calling you to in this season.

Remember, our primary goal is, that every one of us would ask ourselves, “In view of God’s great mercies, am I surrendering everything to Him in worship or am I chasing things that will never truly satisfy?”

AM I SUPPOSED TO GIVE IF I AM CURRENTLY IN DEBT?

If you are currently working on making payments to pay off debt, we commend your progress. And it’s important to keep doing that. We would love to assist you on this journey and recommend a budgeting session that could offer support.
Having financial debt does not excuse someone from giving. Giving is not about what God wants from you, but rather about what God wants for you. We should always find it a joy and privilege to give.

Please contact us if you require any assistance and would like to begin a conversation about steps to get out of debt and move towards healthy financial stewardship. We are here to support you.

WHAT IF I HAVE NEVER GIVEN TO ROOTED FELLOWSHIP BEFORE?

This is a great opportunity to take your first step as part of the Rooted Fellowship family. If you have never given before, now is the best time to start with a dedicated commitment. We really hope you will.

WHAT IF I AM NEW TO ROOTED FELLOWSHIP?

ALL IN for GENEROSITY is woven into the vision of our church. We believe the mission of the local church is the greatest adventure we can ever be part of and we would love for you to be part of this adventure with us.

We believe NOW is the perfect time to make Rooted Fellowship your spiritual home.
