Introduction & Thanks “For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body - Jews or Greeks, slaves or free-and all were made to drink of one Spirit. For the body does not consist of one member but of many.” Romans 12:12-14

Contributions to the mission of Gospel Community Church have come in many forms – some have volunteered their time, some have volunteered their talents, and others have offered their finances. It is a privilege to be a part of this body of believers and to strive side by side in our various roles for the advancement of the gospel. Often times those actively involved in ministry receive thanks and appreciation from those whom they serve and encouragement from those whom they serve with. However, those that are unable to attend our service projects and outreach programs are many times hard at work performing nine to five jobs. Our annual report is intended to thank those that have contributed their hard earned finances throughout the year by sacrificing part of their time and effort that was spent in the office or on the job. Your financial contributions represent hours spent working in the service of Christ and we appreciate your participation in the gospel. Thank you for your generous donations and helping us advance the kingdom of God.

The Mission “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

All our efforts at Gospel Community Church are focused on bringing glory to God the Father and being faithful to the commandment to create disciples in the name of Jesus Christ. These efforts include our time and energy as well as your financial contributions. It is important to us we are 100% transparent in how we allocate your contributions to the work of Jesus Christ and for that reason we attempt to disclose all information regarding how your generous donations have been spent throughout this fiscal year.

Each contribution was spent with the purpose and intention of support our goal as a church body to love God, grow together in Christ, and reach out with the love of Christ.


Giving Summary “But as you excel in everything – in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you – see that you excel in this act of grace also. I say this not as a command, but to prove by the earnestness of others that your love also is genuine.” 2 Corinthians 8:7-8

In 2011 we had contributions from 83 different individuals and families compared to 49 in 2010. We break down the giving into three categories – tithes, donations, and other. The tithes include regular contributions from our church family on a weekly or monthly basis received on Sunday mornings. This dollar amount is what we use to plan and budget our church ministries. Donations we classify as irregular one-time contributions and other income includes some receipts received through Paypal and monies specifically raised for short term missions trips.

The monthly 2011 and 2010 contributions from tithes, donations, and other are see in Table 1 and 2, respectively. The total giving received by Gospel Community Church in 2011 was $139,948.11 compared to $53,718.59 in 2010.

Figure 1: Tithe Breakdown


Our regular contributors were distributed into five different tithe ranges based on total dollars given throughout the entire year. The tithe ranges and number of members which fell in each range is found in Tables 2 & 3. This table is intended to help us track the giving patterns of our members over the years. An increased percentage of givers excelling in this act of grace is an important sign of spiritual growth and understanding of the gospel. All tithe ranges increased with the number of contributors from 2010 to 2011.

Ministry Expense Summary “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.� Matthew 9:37-38

In the first century Christ told his disciples that the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. This statement holds true two-thousand years later and for this reason we make every effort to be efficient with the money God has entrusted to us. At Gospel Community Church we categorize our spending in one of two ways: Internal or External. Finances spent internally are for ministries that are focused on discipleship and fellowship of our church body; such as Sunday morning gatherings or small groups. We believe these functions are important for the spiritual health of the body of Christ and as we mature and grow internally it empowers us, encourages us, and teaches us to share the love of Christ externally. Ultimately the objective is to have a missional church – the way Christ intended it. The internal costs help facilitate in this goal of taking the gospel to the lost. The internal costs include administrative expenses, facility, fellowship, salaries, and others. Finances spent externally are for ministries which are focused on meeting needs and spreading the gospel to the lost - both locally and globally. Our long term vision at Gospel Community


Church is to spend 50% of all giving internally and 50% externally.1 Figure 2 shows that in 2011 we spent roughly 54% internally and 46% externally. This exceeding our goal of 67% internal and 33% external that we set in 2010 for the 2011 fiscal year. In 2012 we are targeting 50% internally versus 50% externally.

Table 3 shows a breakdown of our 2011 financial goals (Target) compared to the results achieved (Actual). The overall results indicated that we maintained well with our budgeting goals for 2010. The large Miscellaneous fee is due to the purchase of sound equipment in 2011. This type of expenditure will be categorized as “Equipment� in the future.

Internal Ministries “So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.� Galatians 6:10

The ministries internal to the church are intended to help disciple our existing members and create opportunities for fellowship throughout the year so that our love for each other might abound more and more.2 As we grow in the faith and mature as Christian’s this time and effort spent focusing on the needs of the church body is intended to motivate us as believers to take the gospel to the world. In 2011 we spent roughly 54% of all expenses, or $42,918.63, on ministries internal to the church compared to 73% and $25,320.62 in 2010. The major categories of spending include administrative, facilities, fellowship, and salaries.

Salaries “Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching. For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox when it treads out the grain,” and, “The laborer deserves his wages.” 1 Timothy 5:17-18

Salaries represent the largest percentage of our internal ministry expenses. This year salaries made up 49% of all internal ministry expenses. We believe that those who preach the gospel should earn their living from the gospel and were blessed with the privilege of increasing Andrew’s salary in 2011.3 As giving increases we look forward to increasing the absolute value of the salaried positions. Teaching Pastor $19,513.60 Worship Leader $1,431.27 Total $20,944.87 Table 4: Salaries

Facility The James River Conference Center located on 400 Court Street has been an incredible blessing for our church body. The average weekly rent was $139 per week to cover our rent for facility use. The increase from 2010 was due to our increase usage of the nursery. The addition of our Kid’s City ministry will increase this value in 2012. The aggregate total of facility costs came to $7,250 in 2011. It is the vision of Gospel Community Church to keep facility costs at low as possible to limit the amount of financial resources that are tied up in our building costs. Facility $7,250 Table 5: Facility Costs

Fellowship “that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.” Romans 1:12

At Gospel Community Church we believe it is important to encourage one another both spiritually and practically in the way we spend our time and resources.4 In 2011 we spent $2,964.49, or 3.75% of total expenses, on activities that we consider fellowship oriented. These include coffee on Sunday mornings, meals together, parties for church members, cook outs at Peaks View Park, and gifts for those in our family of faith. We believe that gathering together to enjoy the company of those in the family of faith is an important way to display our love for each other to the world.5 Fellowship $2,964.49 Table 6: Fellowship Costs

Administrative “For the sons of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than the sons of light.” Luke 16:8

Administrative costs go toward required expenses to operate our church as a legal entity in the United States. These fees typically include insurance, postage fees, taxes, ATM fees, purchasing of checks, paper, Paypal processing fees, etc. It is our goal to keep these fees to a minimum to maximize our ability to give toward the mission of the church. In 2010 administrative expenses were $4,836.47, or 6.12% of total expenses, on activities required for church operation. We hope to reduce this percentage in the future. Administrative $4,836.47 Table 7: Administrative Costs

Romans 1 1 John


Honorariums Throughout the year we have guest speakers and guest worship leaders that preach and lead worship for the church. In order to honor and thank these guests for the hard work they put in we pay them for their contribution to God’s kingdom through one time gifts known as Honorariums. In 2011 we spent $2,016.85 or 2.55% of over expenses on Honorariums. Honorariums $2,016.85 Table 8: Honorariums

Discipleship At Gospel Community we believe in supporting our leaders as they attend conferences and events that contribute to their spiritual well being and their development in their walk with Christ. In 2011 we spent $1,655.72 or 2.10% on activities associated with discipling our leadership at the church, which includes conference fees, transportation costs, hotel arrangements, etc. Discipleship $1,655.72 Table 9: Discipleship


External Ministries “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

Ultimately all the ministries we perform internally within the church are designed to create disciples that are prepared to take the gospel to the ends of the earth. Our external ministries are geared toward taking the gospel to all the nations, starting locally and extending globally. We categorize expenses for our external ministries into four categories: Global Needs, Global Missions, Local Needs, & Local Missions. We believe that through these four avenues we can effectively fulfill the great commission of Christ.

Figure 7: External Expense Summary

Global Missions - Short “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Short term global missions represented 9.24%, or $7,296.34, of overall spending at Gospel Community Church in 2011. We believe these short term trips allow us to participate in major overseas discipleship making processes – such as church plants in India. This figure excludes the $25,081 that was raised for India Spring 2011, $3,500 for India Summer 2011, $2,745 for Rachel Kolb’s


trip, and $8,658.40 for China Spring 2012 plane tickets. Including all monies raised for short term trips Gospel Community spent $47,280.74 on short term global missions. Global Missions - Short $7,296.34 Table 10: Global Missions - Short

Global Missions - Long “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Global missions represented 12.48%, or $9,857.95, of overall spending at Gospel Community Church in 2011. This money was contributed to ministries around the world including sponsoring 5 orphans in Thailand, purchasing supplies for villages in India, sponsoring long term missionaries, church planting efforts in India, and the World Help Baby Rescue project. Global Missions - Long $9,857.95 Table 11: Global Missions

Local Missions “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Local missions represented 10.53%, or $8,317.02, of overall spending at Gospel Community Church in 2011. The majority of these funds were spent on our Saturday Service projects and community outreach programs. We believe that our ministries on Saturday’s were effective at sharing the gospel, being obedient to Christ’s command to take care of the poor, and creating disciples of our current church members. We hope to continue this ministry outreach in 2011. In addition to our Saturday Serve outreach we also participate in Re-Entry dinners for prisoners that have been set free and begin to live normal lives. We also were able to fund a Thanksgiving dinner give-away for the families we have been serving throughout the year. Also, we were able to purchase Christmas presents for the families and children that we met through our Saturday Service program. Local Missions $8,317.02 Table 12: Local Missions


Global Needs In 2011 we gave $1,000 or 1.27% of total expenses to meeting global needs. Global needs differ from global missions in that the monies donated do not necessarily go directly toward spreading the Gospel, but rather humanitarian efforts. There are instances when financial support is required quickly and immediately and humanitarian organizations provide the best way to support those suffering around the globe. The $1,000 donation went toward disaster relief for the victims of the earth quake in Japan. Global Needs $1,000 Table 13: Global Needs

Local Needs “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’” Matthew 25:3436

Meeting needs for those locally, particularly those in our church family, is an essential element to our mission at Gospel Community Church. In 2011 we spent $9,611.35, or 12.17%, of overall spending on meeting local needs. This includes buying groceries for those in our community, paying water bills, electric bills, and supporting those in our church that came across difficult financial times. We look forward to continuing to support and serve our community and our church family to tangibly share the love of Christ in a practical way. Local Needs $9,611.35 Table 14: Local Needs
