The Impact of 1,000 Healthy Churches

80% of the 350,000 churches in the U.S. are plateaued or in decline. Every year we hear more and more that people are leaving the church, that churches are dying, and church plants are failing. We read these statistics and think, is it possible to see the church thrive, grow, and truly see the world transformed? Though we live in a world where we know Who wins the battle in the end, it is incredibly easy to lose heart when we see these national trends.

The heart beat of HGC is to see churches turn around and experience health, to reach their communities with the gospel, and to eventually plant new churches. We imagine a world where each and every church is healthy, growing, and multiplying. Where each church thrives and individuals are changed by the love of Christ.

There is a lot of work between now and then. A mountain of work.

“For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

While HGC might not be able to help every church that is in plateau or decline, we are convinced we can, however, help 1,000. We have faith that God will move this mountain, one church at a time. We have faith that those 1,000 healthy churches will make a kingdom impact that will ripple out for generations to come.

“We Ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean, but the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.” – Mother Teresa

We cannot create this movement alone, our drop cannot be the only one. We need each and every one of our champions to join with us, support us, pray over us, and share this dream with others.

How can you join us?

We have been blown away this week by the enthusiasm that this dream has brought forth from you, our champions. Your generosity and excitement has shown us that God is truly leading this dream. In just 1 week we were given $9,600 with more on the way. Our goal for this month is to raise $30,000 in one time gifts. Please consider giving a one time gift to help us reach this goal.

Our current greatest need is consistent monthly giving. We are asking each of you to consider becoming a monthly giver to HGC. You can give anywhere from $25, $50, or $100 a month to support this goal of 1,000 healthy churches. Please partner with us monthly to support us as we serve 1,000 churches.

Over the coming weeks we will be communicating other ways that you can participate in this big dream. These may be sponsoring micro-events, sponsoring churches who truly need our help, and identifying specific opportunities for churches and leaders that maybe interested in starting a new life cycle of health.  One of our goals is to equip you to engage in this big dream, to make this dream one of yours. Thank you for your prayers, your donations, and your continued ownership of our mission to see churches and leaders be healthy and multiply!
