Why Give?

Discovery is here to offer God’s Word to anyone who wants to hear it. In order to do that, we have multiple programs that can address the needs of many people. While we encourage you to give of your time and talents, your monetary gifts provide the funds required to support these programs.

Jesus had a lot to say about the topic of money. He liked talking about money because it reveals so much about our heart. Giving generously, sacrificially and regularly to His church and His purposes helps us find everything we need in Him alone.

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew 6:21
