$5000 by the 15th!
We're raising $5,000 for Declare Dayton by July 15th! Please visit www.declaredayton.org to make your donation! Instructions are available at that link to give either online or by check.
Every dollar counts. In fact, if everyone attending the event (estimating 6,000 in attendance) gave $5, we would cover the full cost for the event. If you're reading this, please consider giving at least $5. Every dollar counts.
For those who want to take the time to learn more about why they might give at all, or why we're doing this event, or why $5,000, here are some of those answers...
1. Why are you having this event?
We desire to see revival in Dayton and beyond, so we want to bring God's people together to worship the Lord and declare His glory, being a vibrant witness to the world around us. At this night we will Worship, proclaiming God's goodness, faithfulness and plan of salvation. We will also Reach, taking an offering of $15,000 for Miami Valley Women's Center, a ministry that literally saves lives and also shares the hope of eternal life. We are also partnering with Target Dayton Ministries to organize several hands-on ministry opportunities to reach Dayton with the love of Christ. Through all of this, we will Revive. This revival is two-fold. As God revives His Church to love Him and pursue Him above all else, we will then go out and bring revival in the world around us. God has called us to proclaim His message of hope and salvation to the world, and we want to do so loudly and boldly in Dayton.
2. Why would I give towards this event?
In short, to help bring revival and see souls saved in Dayton and beyond. We're not going for a concert or a fun night out. We are seeking to see God transform lives and change the eternal destinies of many. We believe that is something worth investing in. We are committed to this event being free and open to the public so that people can invite as many friends as they would like to hear this message of hope, so we are asking individuals, churches and businesses to give up front to make that possible. Also, you can check out this video to hear why one individual has decided to contribute financially to make this event possible.
3. Why $5,000, and why the 15th?
The total event costs to hold the event are estimated at around $25,000, and we have currently received slightly over $5,000 towards the event. We need to get our deposit in to the arena very soon, and the deposit is $5,000. Some of the funds that we have already raised have already been used towards other event costs, and also rather than deplete what has already come in we want to continue towards our overall fundraising goal. We want to raise the full amount for the deposit ($5000) by a date (the 15th) that is soon enough to get our deposit in for the Arena. Also, $5000 by the 15th sounded catchier than $4999.99 by the 14th.
Again, you can find all of the information on the event website at www.declaredayton.org, but here are a couple one-click links to videos that explain more as well... thank you for your partnership in declaring God's glory in Dayton!!
