Thank you for your interest in supporting the ministries of Journey Christian Church. Your financial support enables us to create environments that are effective at inviting and leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, both locally and globally. There are multiple ways for you to give to financially support the mission and vision of Journey:
Secure Online GivingGive Online
Thank you for automating your giving and having a plan to support your local church. Your consistent, planned generosity makes it possible for us to budget and dream responsibly.
Our digital PushPay giving platform enables you to give quickly, securely, and conveniently. You can set up automatic recurring gifts, or give a one-time gift. It works just like your bank’s bill pay, except that it is all electronic and your gifts are automatically recorded in your secure online Journey profile. Giving by this method is most preferred since it has the least amount of fees and it eliminates the administrative tasks required by our business office staff.
You can make your gifts in person using cash or check at one of our services on Sunday. Be sure that your contact info is on the check or an envelope if you are contributing cash and want to receive credit for tax purposes.
Non-Cash and Stock Giving
You can donate non-cash gifts like stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and real estate. In fact, if you donate first, rather than sell, pay taxes and then give the net proceeds, you could reduce taxes, save more and give more! Journey has a relationship with National Christian Foundation that allows you to give more by giving more wisely.
To make a stock donation, it is highly recommended that you use this form and follow the steps therein. If you must use your firm’s form, please include our NCF Giving Fund Number 1308151 and our NCF Giving Fund Name ‘The Journey Christian Church Single Charity Fund’ in the Delivery Instructions block of your firm’s Letter of Authorization. This will ensure timely and proper routing of your gift to Journey Christian Church and receipt of your donation acknowledgement.
If you have any questions, please contact Wendy Spradlin in our business office.

Cares Act 2020 - What you need to know!
About the CARES Act
On March 27, 2020, The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the CARES Act) was passed into law – a $2.2 trillion economic stimulus package to provide expanded financial assistance through a number of mechanisms, including individual tax rebates, extended unemployment benefits, easier access to business loans, and support for distressed industries and healthcare providers.
HOW IT AFFECTS YOU!
Givers who itemize their deductions may continue to deduct charitable gifts like before, but they now get a special deduction for cash gifts made in 2020 to churches and public charities. With this special deduction, givers are able to deduct up to 100% of their adjusted gross income (AGI) in 2020.
Givers can continue to give cash and non-cash assets to their churches, Giving Funds (donor-advised funds), supporting organizations (SOs), and other charities while enjoying the usual deductions. They may deduct up to 30% of their AGI for non-cash gifts and up to a total of 50% for combined cash and non-cash gifts to Giving Funds and organizations (gifts to private, non-operating foundations are different). However, in 2020 only, givers are allowed to follow their other charitable giving with an additional, special, cash gift to churches and public charities and receive a deduction of up to 100% of their AGI.
The special increase is only for cash gifts made to churches and public charities; it does not include non-cash gifts or gifts to Giving Funds or SOs. However, if you would like to support a single, specific charity, a Single-Charity Fund with NCF does qualify for the special 100% AGI deduction.
Givers who take the standard deduction on their personal tax return are entitled to deduct up to $300 from their income for cash gifts made in 2020 to churches and public charities. This is in addition to the standard deduction.
