beyond me

Following Jesus will always lead us beyond ourselves. We’re called to pray, give, serve, and live beyond ourselves so that others might come to know and follow Jesus. This is our purpose - our “why” - behind what we do and how we do it.

What is "Beyond Me?"

If you're new to The Branch, you may be wondering what this is all about.
When we launched the Vista Ridge Campus in 2007, we knew we would have to eventually expand the facility on that campus if we were to help more people in the immediate vicinity come to know and follow Jesus.
The Beyond Me initiative is aimed at addressing two specific needs: 
  1. Significantly more space needed for our youth and children’s ministries. 
  2. More space needed for showing hospitality and helping people to connect with others.
In November 2017, we asked the church to confirm our leadership's belief that the time had come for us to address the limitations of the Vista Ridge facility.

The estimated cost of the project is around $9 million, and when the church responded with commitments of $8.8 million added to the $1.25 million we had already set aside for the project, we knew it was time to get moving.

If you've recently joined us, it's not too late to contribute!
The commitment period started in December 2017 and will run through November 2020, but you can give to the Beyond Me fund even if you didn't make a commitment.
