We have the privilege of hearing from people all the time who tell us how their lives and families have been greatly impacted by our church family and ministry. Giving creates these opportunities that wouldn’t otherwise exist. Destiny Church is totally funded by you, the church. Lives that are changed every week are because you give of yourself to make it happen.
We have developed a giving platform that allows for the use of Credit, Debit and ACH gifts to be made. PushPay is a secure method to make a one-time donation or setup recurring gifts. You can click the button below to see the new giving platform, PushPay. It's very easy to use, understandable and very quick. You can also text GP4RL to the number 77977 and we'll send you simple link to the giving platform.
Automatic Bank Withdrawal (ACH)
ACH is a method of electronic giving that allows 100% of your tithe or offering to go toward its intended mission. Most electronic financial transactions have fees associated with them, but ACH removes that element. Setup can be done on our giving platform (PushPay). You can choose ACH as a form of giving along side of other alternatives like credit or debit cards. All can be process via our Push Pay app or right here only by pressing the "Give" button.
Cash or Check
Checks can be made out to Destiny Christian Center and placed in our giving stations or received at our offices. You may mail your checks to the church offices (Please DO NOT mail cash) - DCCI, PO Box 15300, Oklahoma City, OK, 73155. Cash is also accepted in the giving stations or in the office as well. We encourage you to use the offering envelopes provided so your giving history can be logged as a part of your annual giving records that we offer to you quarterly. This is very helpful in regard to your being able to claim these gifts during the annual tax season.
Each year we ask the church family to project their annual giving for tithes and offerings. This helps us budget and better steward the finances on behalf of the church. Doing this annually also provides a time to share the Destiny vision with newcomers and provide an opportunity for them to partner in their giving as they stand on the shoulders of those who have sacrificially given before.
Money is Ministry
Our giving counts eternally as a sacrificial expression of our love for God and for the advance of His Kingdom. The giving of the Church family does more than just "keep the lights on." It is sown into the advancement and ministry of God's love both in the church, through the church and across the globe in other countries and missional work that we're a part of. We know that the transformed lives of people are the result of ministry and that ministry is supported and participated in by the church family.
Our giving platform, PushPay provides details around the history of your giving. We also issue quarterly giving statements so that you can evaluate your giving and also have record of each gift. Our leaders and elders meticulously evaluate budget projections and conclusions to verify that we're maximizing the use of money for the greatest ministry impact. We issue quarterly records for giving to each person privately.
A Lifestyle of Giving
For God so LOVED that he GAVE. The generous nature of God is the most powerful change agent in the world. Not only did he give from the heart of love but he continues to invite us by attracting us to kindness – Rom 2:4. The church carries a great responsibility to fulfill God’s commission of sacrificial loving, sacrificial giving and sacrificial kindness.
It’s the understanding of eternal priorities that brings us to a willing sacrifice of temporal things. At Destiny we understand that the previous generation made many personal sacrifices so we could be here today. Now it’s our turn to embrace the loving, giving, kind nature of God as we sacrificially reach out to the next generation. They are coming! We must prepare the way!
Giving at Destiny is a part of God working through real life. We believe that giving begins long before the money goes into the offering bucket or comes out of your bank account. It is a lifestyle of being a producer, not a consumer - sowing seed and being prepared to give out of our increase.
Each of you must make up your own mind about how much to give. But don’t feel sorry that you must give and don’t feel that you are forced to give. God loves people who love to give. God can bless you with everything you need, and you will always have more than enough to do all kinds of good things for others. God gives seed to farmers and provides everyone with food. He will increase what you have, so that you can give even more to those in need. You will be blessed in every way, and you will be able to keep on being generous. (2 Cor. 9 CEV)
The original Hebrew word for tithe is 'masra' and it specifically means 10% - the first of what you earn. At Destiny, tithes go toward the general operating expenses of the church and the ministries of Destiny. All offerings that go beyond the tithes are put toward our building program - we are building buildings to build people!
