What is MORE?

This is an exciting time at Prince! We are seeing people saved and baptized, pastors and missionaries equipped and sent, students called into ministry, marriages healed, and hundreds of disconnected families finding a place to call home.

While we love to see what God is doing, we are asking God for more—more of God’s presence, more of his power, more of his blessing, more of his miracles, and more of his anointing. But mostly, above all these things, what we really want is more of God.

This desire led to Prince’s vision and building plans to carry out the vision. MORE is an opportunity for us—individually and corporately—to seek God’s presence in our lives and to be effective at reaching our community for Him.

To carry out our vision, we have a goal of raising $15 million to expand our buildings to better equip future church planters and missionaries as well as create more space for our community to attend Prince and experience God! Will you join us for MORE?!

What are we asking you to do?

If the Lord wants us to move forward with these plans, we are confident he not only will stir the hearts of his people but also will provide the resources this vision requires. What we ask of you is simple.
We ask you to make three commitments: Participate, Pray, and Obey.

First, we ask you to commit to PARTICIPATE.

Before you ever think about how much you are going to give during this two-year campaign, we ask you first to say, “Lord, I am going to participate in what you are doing at Prince.”

Second, we ask you to commit to PRAY.

We ask you to take 28 days from the day you receive this booklet to pray. We ask you not only to pray for Prince and the fulfillment of our vision, but we ask you to pray about exactly what God wants you to do. We want you to hear direction from God, not from us.

Finally, we ask you to OBEY.

Whatever God tells you to do, do it. That’s it. We are going to trust that if every person participates, prays, and obeys, God will provide everything we need to accomplish what he has for us to do. We believe this approach not only honors the Lord but also puts you in a position where you have to pray and trust the Lord. Remember, our vision is to experience, enjoy, and expand God’s presence. So, we want you to experience God’s presence in this moment. We want you to hear from God and obey. We want this to be a moment in which God calls you into greater faith and asks you to do MORE for his glory.

How to give to MORE

1. The first thing to do is Pray: "Lord, all I have is yours. Show me clearly how much you want me to give. I want to hear from you. Give me the faith to believe your promises and obey what you tell me to do."

If you attended a vision meal, you received a 28-Day Prayer Guide along with the Vision booklet. We want you to complete this time of seeking God’s face before making any commitments!

2. Make your pledge. 
Using the commitment card on your 28-Day Prayer Guide, fill out your pledge and turn it into one of our collection boxes on Sunday mornings in the atrium.
If you lost your commitment card, you can fill out another card (available in the church atrium.) 

If you have questions on how to fill out a Commitment Card, please contact us here.

If you did not receive a Prayer Guide with a commitment card, we have them available in the church offices during the week and in the atrium on Sunday mornings.

You can also view a digital version of the Commitment Card to help you make your pledge. If you would like to make your pledge but cannot fill out a physical Commitment Card, please contact us, and we can help setup your pledge through online giving.

3. Begin giving towards your pledge. 
When you give on Sunday mornings (either by check or cash), be sure to mark that your gift should go to the “MORE Building Fund”

If you give online, click “Fund” and then choose “MORE Building Fund” from the drop-down. You can give to this fund either as a one-time gift, or you can set up a scheduled payment to go towards fulfilling your pledge.

4. Pray. 
We asked you to begin the process with prayer, and we are asking you to continue in prayer throughout this entire journey. We are following God’s guidance, and prayer is how we abide in Him!

vision timeline

We are taking one step at a time moving forward with our building expansion plans.
We'll keep this page up-to-date as we continue to make decisions and steps toward our building expansion.

November 2021

We began praying as a church what God wanted us to do as far as building expansion. We could see the need, but we didn’t want to move forward without clarity.

September 25, 2022

Pastor Josh shared the vision for Prince Avenue moving forward: Our vision is to be the visible presence of Jesus in our community, a healthy and growing family of faith that is passionate about experiencing, enjoying, and expanding God’s presence to our neighbors and the nations.

You can watch that Sunday's message here.

October 2022

We held vision meals on October 2, 9, and 16, to share details on building plans that would help us carry out our new vision.

At the meals, we invited everyone to participate in the process by praying for 28 days to seek God’s presence in their lives as well as what to give towards our building expansion.

October 30, 2022

At the end of both of our Sunday morning services, Prince Partners voted by ballot on whether to move forward with the vision plans. The church voted 99% in favor of moving forward.

November 2022

Beginning Sunday, November 6, 2022, we began collecting pledges and gifts toward our goal of $15 million. Collection boxes will remain in the atrium for the remainder of 2022.

We will begin construction once we reach our goal of $15 million in pledges.

January 2023

As of January 15, 2023, we have reached $10,745,000 in gifts and pledges toward our goal of $15 million! This amount was reached by only 48% of giving units in our church. That means that 52% of giving units have not given or pledged anything towards MORE.

Our primary goal with this initiative is for every Prince member to pray about how God wants them to participate and then obey! We believe that if the 52% of giving units pray about what they should give toward MORE, then we will reach our goal of $15 million.

We have decided to not take out a loan to get the remainder of the amount needed. Instead, we will begin with preliminary planning work and permits that will take 10-12 months to complete. We are believing that by the time we are ready to break ground on construction, we will have everything we need to pay for the project in cash!

How to pray

  • Lord, do MORE in and through our church for your glory. According to your power, may this be a season in which we see you do far MORE abundantly than all we ask or think. May we see your power and your glory. May we experience you like never before.

  • Lord, fulfill your vision for our church and begin with me. I want to experience, enjoy, and expand your presence. Help me to know you MORE personally and intimately. Make yourself real to me and to everyone in our church.

  • Lord, we want MORE of you. You are our greatest longing and desire. Lead me into greater intimacy with you. Fill me with the fullness of your Spirit. Help me to surrender fully to you.

  • Lord, all I have is yours. Show me clearly how much you want me to give. I want to hear from you. Give me the faith to believe your promises and obey what you tell me to do.
