Investment Guide

This guide is designed to help you think through and discuss as a family your commitment to God’s work at Highpoint. We’ve identified three categories of investing for you to consider.

1. Percentage Giver

“Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.”
Malachi 3:10

First and foremost, if you are not already a tither (someone who gives their first 10% to the Lord), your primary participation in the No Greater Joy campaign is to put God first in your finances. We are inviting you to trust God’s promise in Malachi 3:10 and experience the blessings that come from obeying God.

Percentage giving can be challenging at first, but it is doable. Pick a percentage and start giving consistently. As you become more and more financially disciplined, increase your giving by 1% per month until you reach 10%. Your tithe will enable us to both fuel Highpoint’s mission and make these renovations possible.

We invite you to consider and apply the truth of 2 Corinthians 9:7: “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” It is our hope and prayer that at the end of the No Greater Joy campaign, you will say, “There is no greater joy than investing in the lost being found.”

2. Above and Beyond Giver

“As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.”
1 Timothy 6:17-19

People invest for one reason and one reason only: it’s all about the return on investment. In God’s economy, life change is God’s return on investment. Unapologetically, we are asking you to invest in the lost being found. Many people have invested in us; now it’s our privilege to invest in others.

The No Greater Joy campaign is an opportunity for you to make an investment that is above and beyond your tithe. It is an investment that requires you to make temporary sacrifices for eternal returns. This shouldn’t be viewed as an obligation, but as an opportunity to make a difference now and forever. We invite you to consider the ways you can re-prioritize your finances to make this your most important investment over the next 26 months.

Review the chart, find your place, and move up at least one level.

3. Unexpected Opportunities

“He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God.”
2 Corinthians 9:10-11 (ESV)

We invite you to commit to giving unexpected income during the 26 months of the No Greater Joy campaign. If and when you receive an unexpected source of income or financial blessing, you simply pay it forward by using it to invest in God’s work. In other words, you are saying to God, “I will be a conduit for Your blessing.” This is putting your YES on the table first because only God knows when and how much He will bless you.

For example, Pastor Chris is asking God to bless the sales of his book, Priority Time: Addicted to God’s Word, so that the profits from this project over the next 26 months go to the campaign.

Your commitment here is between you and God. We dare you to ask God to bless you.
