A Letter from MATT HAUPT
I wanted to reach out and bring some clarity to our three-year initiative called Basecamp. The three-year commitments we are making are gifts we are giving above and beyond our regular tithe. These additional gifts, given over the next three years, will be designated exclusively for our new church home.
Another important part of Basecamp is the timing of these commitments. Lenders will use these commitment cards to determine how much the church can responsibly borrow to finance our new building. With this in mind, we are asking that you have your commitment cards turned in on or before Easter Sunday April 12th.
If you have not turned in your commitment card yet, I would ask that you prayerfully consider what sacrifices you could make over the next few years in order to invest in the kingdom work God is doing at and through MissionView Church. It is truly going to take all of us working and sacrificing together to do what God has called us to do. Remember, it is not equal gifts but rather an equal sacrifice. I want to encourage you with God’s word in 2 Corinthians 9:6-8:
“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.”
Let us join together in prayer and cheerful giving to the Lord! I am looking forward to celebrating what God does through your generosity. Thank you for your faithfulness and obedience in this new and exciting season God has us in.

A Letter from MATT HAUPT
I am very excited about the unanimous vote to move forward with the purchase of a new facility. The opportunities this building will open up for us toward our mission of reaching 200,000 with the gospel and the love of God will be amazing. The unity displayed yesterday was inspiring and it is a powerful example of MissionView’s commitment to be a missional church. I am thankful for God’s grace that is active in us and fuels this kind of passion to see His Kingdom grow!
The approval of the building now requires our financial support. The total cost of the finished project is estimated to be $3.6 million. The purchase of the property will cost $300,000. Another $600,000 will be required to obtain $2.7 million in financing and start the renovation project. This sounds like a large number, but I know that where God leads, He will provide.
This move is going to take all of us joining together in sacrificial giving apart from our normal giving. I am sure that as you have been praying about this location, looking over the renderings, and maybe even driving by the facility to check it out, that you have been asking the Lord to guide you in how you can financially support this move. I wanted to let you know about two ways that you can give towards project Basecamp.
The first way is coming up this Sunday. We are going to be taking up a special offering to raise money to acquire the building and start the renovation process. I want to ask each of you to pray about what God would have you give. I trust He will guide you and bless you with great joy as you give, and remember that it is not about equal gifts but rather an equal sacrifice.
The second way you can give is by making a three-year commitment. We are looking at different and strategic ways to finance this renovation and we have talked with a couple of lenders who would allow our three-year commitments to be used as equity in the lending process. We are going to be sharing the specifics of project Basecamp, our three-year campaign, over the next 3 weeks. This will give you more time to pray about the different ways you can support this move above and beyond your regular giving. For me, I know Starbucks is going to be seeing a lot less of my money over the next three years and Netflix might have to go too:)!
As your pastor, I want to thank you for your generosity and passion to see the gospel go out and impact our neighbors, our city, our country, and the world, as we pursue a gracious Savior and live on mission for Him!
