Why are we raising money?
We want our friends and neighbors to hear about Jesus! In short, we want to reach people where they live. Knocking down barriers between people and Jesus means launching new locations where we can begin to meet those needs in our community. We’ve chosen Millard as our first campus launch.
What is the 1K Challenge?
Reality Church is asking families and individuals to get creative and help us raise $300,000 to fund the launch of our new church campus in Millard. If each family/individual will commit to raising $1,000 by January 20, 2019, we will be able to launch the new campus on Easter Sunday 2019! How exciting is that?!
Am I limited to giving $1,000?
Absolutely not! Some will be able to give more than $1,000, while others less. While we wanted to give everyone a tangible goal to reach, we also realize every gift helps reach our church goal of $300,000. Thank you so much for your generosity.
How do I raise the money?
This is the fun part! Everybody can get involved. Maybe the kids make a lemonade stand, maybe the teens babysit or do some lawncare. Maybe the adults work some extra hours or sell some stuff around the house. You’re only limited by your creativity. Get the whole family involved and make it fun!

Is this a pledged amount?
No, you will not be making a pledge for a certain dollar amount, but we would like for you to turn your money in along the way so we can track our progress. We do ask that all funds be turned in by January 20, 2019 at Momentum, our yearly Vision Meeting.
What is the money going toward?
The money we raise will help with everything needed to launch a new campus. This will be a portable campus so we will need to load and unload everything into our facility each Sunday. This includes: equipment, gear, signage, kids and students area supplies, lighting, trailers to hold everything, etc. The money will also go toward advertising, promotion, personnel and facility rent. And don't forget coffee!
