Lifestyle Capital Campaign

This questionnaire is designed to help the church determine the best way to make the countdown to construction of our new Cathedral successful.  It is totally anonymous and your opinion and support of the campaign are important. Please read each question and select the answer that reflects your point of view. Your participation in this survey is greatly appreciated.

* 1. What is your gender?

* 2. What is your age group?

* 3. Do you agree that to fulfill it’s mission to God, Grace Baptist Church needs to build a new Cathedral?

* 4. Are you willing to make a financial contribution to help build the new Cathedral?

* 5. If you have NOT made a financial pledge to help build the new Cathedral to fulfill Grace’s mission, please tell us why?

* 6. How are you prepared to help Grace reach its financial goal of $3.5 million in new pledges and $1 million in cash contributions to start construction of the new Cathedral?

* 7. Did you know that you could legally donate 1/3rd of your annual federal tax liability to your church or charity every year?

About Charitable Contributions
Although how you give is a personal event, we also think you should know that great tax benefits exist for those who give. A gift to a qualified charitable organization may entitle you to a charitable contribution deduction against your income tax if you itemize deductions

We urge you to consult your tax advisor for the federal, state, and local tax consequences of a charitable contribution.

* 8. Would you like Grace Baptist Church to provide a tax, insurance or household budget expert at no cost, to help you plan your giving to the Cathedral campaign?

* 9. Are you willing to ask your friends and family to make a One-Time Contribution to the 90-day Cathedral campaign?

* 10. The biblical foundation of Grace's Cathedral campaign is equal sacrifice not equal giving. Do you agree that small contributions are just as meaningful as large contributions?

* 11. What can Grace do to help you make a prayerful decision to make a pledge or contribution to the Cathedral campaign during our 90 day countdown to construction?

* 12. Does the fact that Jesus spoke about stewardship and money, more than faith, hope and love combined, make you more likely or less likely to make a pledge of financial support to the new Cathedral project?

* 13.
