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?!

How to give to MORE

1. Make a pledge

We will begin construction on the new worship center once we reach our goal of $15 million in gifts and pledges. The MORE Initiative is planned to run through the end of December 2024, so we are asking for pledges of the amount you will give to MORE by the end of the campaign. This will help us reach our goal and begin construction sooner!

How to make a pledge:
We have commitment cards available in the 
church offices during the week and in the atrium on Sunday mornings. 

If you would like to make your pledge but cannot fill out a physical Commitment Card, please contact us, and we can help set up your pledge through online giving.

2. increase your pledge

If you have already made a pledge but would like to increase the amount, you can do that! Fill out a commitment card on Sundays or stop by the church offices during the week. 

If you would like to confirm your current pledge and contributions to MORE, please call Finance Director Susan Pittard at 678.753.3131.

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.

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!

May 2024

On Sunday, May 5, we held another MORE dinner where Pastor Josh had the opportunity to share the heart and vision behind the MORE Initiative, including all of the details of the building campaign, Equip Center, and counseling center. Since the original MORE meals in October 2022, we have had more than 400 individuals join Prince as members, so we wanted to provide the opportunity for all of these people to learn the details on MORE and to invite them to participate.

We will continue to receive contributions toward individual pledges as our team continues to work with architects and the county to be ready to break ground and begin construction. 

Hear details on our future plans!

We filmed Pastor Josh sharing details about the vision for Prince, and we've included it here if you were unable to make it to one of our vision meals or if you want to hear the details again.
