Our mission at Northeast is pretty simple. We focus on loving God and loving others. Accomplishing this mission requires the financial sacrifice of the people that call Northeast their home. Giving is a way of showing love for God and for others. When you give, you enable Northeast to help its people grow spiritually and meet the needs of our community.
We encourage all of those who are part of our Church family to give not out of obligation but out of worship. Your gifts allow God's work to be done in the community.
Thank you for your generosity. The following link will help you set online giving at Northeast and securely give online.
More information about giving can be found below.
Why Give At northeast?
Your giving helps:
Community - We believe that a relationship with Christ is the most important part of your life, and we want to help you live a life that is focused on Him. We do that through Community Groups, study opportunities and conferences that will help you engage on a deeper level in your relationship with Christ. It's why we celebrate baptism and stories of lives changed.
Servanthood - Meeting the needs of those that come onto our campuses and those in our community, both locally and globally, is the greatest way we are able to show others that they matter to us and God.
Weekend Services - From kid and student programming to worship and weekly messages, we want to inspire you, challenge you, and ultimately move you closer to Christ.

It’s an understatement that we aren’t just a little nervous when we set outrageous generosity goals. No matter how crazy they may be, God has always provided and he does that through each and every one of you.
We believe that as leaders of Northeast, one of the best ways we can steward God’s incredible generosity toward us is to be as transparent as possible with you. That’s why we’ve compiled this report. We want to show you how we have done our very best to use the resources that you have shared with us in a God-Honoring way. We want to show how your faithfulness in giving has led to action. We want you to know exactly how your giving has impacted the ministry of Northeast in 2018.
Every time we set a generosity goal, I get really nervous. Every time I get really nervous, y’all put my lack of faith to shame and blow our wildest dreams out of the water. When I looked at our financials after the Love the 'Ville Eve Fund ($1.1 Million!), five words came to mine – “What’s wrong with these people?” Whatever it is, let’s never lose it. Let’s grow it!
Every. Single. Week. Our compassionate church is able to show Jesus’ love to literally thousands of people all across our church, city, and world. I wish I could line-up every visitor welcomed, child loved, attendee connected, church leader coached, and outsider baptized into Jesus. I wish I could introduce you to every prisoner visited, woman liberated, refugee sponsored, student served, teacher appreciated, and village provided for. But that’s part of what will make Heaven so great. We will have billions of years to hear and share the stories of how Jesus’ love worked through us to rescue others.
No doubt, we are the most compassionate church in Compassion City, U.S.A. Thank you! And the Love the ‘Ville movement is only four years old. Imagine the terror we will be when we are teenagers! Thanks for choosing to have less so you can give more. Thank you for believing that the local church is the body of Jesus and Jesus is the hope of the world. Thank you for making Jesus your reason. Jesus is why!
Your generosity is what fuels the mission of this church so let’s not slow down. In fact, let’s take it up a notch and continue to prove to our city God is alive and God is love!
Be bold. Love big. Stay faithful. Pray often.
Northeast Christian Church
P.S. A big goal for 2019 is to move as many people as possible into auto-giving through our online options. It solidifies the consistency of your generosity when you can’t make it to our weekend gathering and it gives us the stability to plan a more precise budget. Would you consider doing that today?
