Willow Creek Community Church: Vision Night 2006

At Willow Creek we do a Vision Night once a year to discuss what's gone on in the last twelve months and what we are praying for the following twelve months. It's always one of my favorite services because it tells the story of the latest chapter of this really exciting journey we are on as a church. Sometimes the information is sobering and sometimes it is exhilerating...this year we got some really great news - our year end fund drive raised 1.8 million dollars for three great causes! Here's how it's going to be used:

  • $300,000 will be distributed to the launch of Casa de Luz, Willow Creek’s ministry to the local Hispanic community.
  • $400,000 will be set aside for disaster relief so when disaster strikes, Willow can respond quickly.
  • $1.1 million will be directed toward alleviating Global Poverty and AIDS.

(I got this excerpt from Willow News and you can check it out, along with video of the service, at this link.)
