What is Vision 2030?
We want to see everyone everywhere in an everyday relationship with Jesus — and yes, we’ve got some work to do. The first step? For us, it was to make a plan that we’re calling Vision 2030:
1. All NewSpring campuses in permanent homes by 2030
Out of our 14 locations across the state, our Aiken, Charleston, Lake Wylie, and Myrtle Beach campuses are still leasing their facilities. This year, the major focus of the Overflow Offering is to establish Aiken Campus in their permanent home!
2. Debt-free by 2030
We’ve dreamed of being debt-free since January 2017—when we started the year with a $45 million debt balance largely due to facility-building projects.
In 2017, NewSpring’s leadership team made two important decisions: we won’t take on any additional debt, and we will give 10% of our general tithes and offerings to other Christ-centered churches and mission organizations.
Within five years, we’ve paid off $30 million! While we know we have a ways to go, we’re also excited to share that during that same timeframe, NewSpring has given away approximately $19 million to churches and missions organizations that are building God’s kingdom locally and all over the world! As we move into 2022, we’ll continue to be aggressive in paying down our debt balance.
3. Plant ten churches by 2030
We will identify, train, and send out people we believe have been called by God and who are ready to start a new church — not a NewSpring campus. We believe these new churches will be planted outside the state of South Carolina. We also strongly believe God will raise up other people in our church who will feel called to go and be a part of these church plants!
Many individuals and families faithfully give year after year. Their faith in the Lord and commitment to tithing and offering allow our church to remain steady and strong. If that is you, thank you.
