Generosity is our Privilege
We are grateful for the past and radically committed to the future.
From our Pastor
As we reflect on God’s faithfulness, we are filled with the faith to sow into the future. His steadfast love today assures us that He holds tomorrow. We stand on the shoulders of those who have generously sown seeds of sacrifice over the past 29 years. Every fall, we reflect on the Kingdom harvest, celebrate what God has done through our church family, and, as we look to the next season, we do the most for the least of these through our annual Heart for the House offerings.
Heart for the House is the opportunity to go above and beyond our regular giving to invest in the vision God has given us and unlock the miraculous potential for the year to come. If you have never participated in this special endeavor, we ask you to prayerfully consider joining us this year. God is moving in us and through us in Chicago and beyond. I am so thankful for your generosity & partnership. Life Changers wouldn’t be what it is without you.
HEART FOR THE HOUSE OUTREACH 2022
INCREASE OUR GLOBAL REACH & PARTNERSHIPS
REACH 500,000 PEOPLE WITH SOLAR-POWERED AUDIO BIBLES
IMPACT OUR COMMUNITY
When we give, people will be drawn to Jesus and respond to the Gospel.
“For your generosity to them and to all believers will prove that you are obedient to the Good News of Christ.” 2 Cor. 9:13
Generosity draws people to Jesus because it reflects the generous heart of God. This means that when you give towards Heart for the House, you are directly involved in leading people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus.
BENEFIT OF GIVING
YOUR GENEROSITY EXTENDED
Increase Our Global Reach & Partnerships
Ask of me, and I will give you the nations for your inheritance and the ends of the earth for Your possession. Ps. 2:8
We will achieve this goal through a wide range of initiatives with our global partners:
- Build an additional 20 earthquake-resistant homes in Haiti
- Equip and grow our Life Changers Church plant in Oradea, Romania
- Double our refugee outreach for orphans and widows in Kyiv, Ukraine
- Increase our education, clothing, and food outreach for widows and orphans.
- Expand our church impact, education initiatives, clothing and food outreaches for widows and orphans through Life Changers in India
- Increase our content distribution and media outreach by 400,000 people.
- Double our outreach on YouVersion to 1.1 million subscribers over the next 24 months
MEASURING YOUR IMPACT
Reach 500,000 People With Solar-Powered Audio Bibles!
Go and preach the good news to everyone in the world. Mark 16:15 CEV
We will accomplish this through our global outreach — utilizing our distribution partner, Megavoice. We’re believing God to reach 2 million people over the next three years. The Bible is translated and ready to go, along with ten of Pastor Dickow’s most popular teachings and the plan of salvation in the Arabic, Portuguese, and French languages, which combined can reach 260 million people, 8 million people, and 120 million people, respectively. In 2023, after the necessary production and distribution time, our faith goal is to reach 500,000 people. The upfront cost to reach 1 person with a SPAB is $2.99.
LOVE TO THE RESCUE
Impact Our Community!
“The Word became flesh and blood and moved into the neighborhood.” John 1:14 MSG
We will achieve this goal through several outreaches:
- Expand city campus outreach to high school and university students
- Double our reach through our weekly food drives at both campuses
- Double our holiday food and gift support for hospitalized children and low-income families
- Increase our outreach support with local homeless shelters
- Expand outreach services to families who need a helping hand, including single moms and Thanksgiving Meal Giveaway.
- Host Back to School Block Party (Aug 2023)
You will grow, prosper, and be refreshed!
“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” Pro. 11:25
When you are charitable, you feel good afterward. Giving triggers the brain’s dopamine-rich reward system. It happens mostly in a region called the striatum, which is the same area that lights up when you eat cake, listen to music, or engage in other satisfying activities. Source
BENEFIT OF GIVING
Many people have lost their sense of awe regarding God’s off-the-charts, never-ending, inexhaustible love. Heart for the House, and our vision as a church, has always been to tell people about this love and welcome them home — people from all nations, ethnicities, socioeconomics, and lifestyles who are looking for a warm and loving church family. Heart for the House is more than an offering or opportunity for wild generosity; it truly is the miracle of a message in motion.
ACCELERATE THE VISION
Our hope is that every person will prayerfully consider being a part of the Heart for the House Outreach. It is not about the amount you give but the commitment you make. As God leads you, please create a recurring gift online to give faithfully toward the 2022 Heart for the House. Here are a few suggestions to help your generosity go further.
Not sure how much to give? Consider a small gift of $25
Become a recurring giver and give $40 per month for one year
Able to do more? Set an audacious goal to help accelerate the vision
God will reward YOU!
“But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matt. 6:3-4
People get an even stronger sense of reward when they see the positive impact of their gift—much like the joy you feel when you see your loved one’s face light up when they unwrap the perfect present. Source

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much money do I have to give?
Life Changers does not tell people how much to give, but we encourage everyone to pray about it! We believe God will speak to us about our giving if we ask.
God is a giver.
We are givers!
Our heart beats for generosity. Why? For every dollar invested, we see the Kingdom of God expand. We see souls saved, lives transformed, orphans and widows, fed and clothed, and so much more.
When Can I Give?
You can give on any day of the week and at any time of the day — during the four weeks of Heart for the House — October 30 - November 20. You can give online or in the offerings at our in-person services. We will also receive a Heart for the House offering weekly during each service.
I already tithe — should I still participate in the Heart for the House Outreach Offering?
The Heart for the House Outreach Offering is a special offering in addition to regular Tithes & Offerings. These funds are put towards expansion, assets, and other expenses outside of normal operations. We encourage you to participate in the Heart for the House Offering. Even more than that, we encourage you to talk to God about it!
Will my small contribution make an impact?
All financial contributions, regardless of size, make a huge difference! If everyone contributed a small amount, the cumulative effect would be greater than if only those who gave large amounts contributed.
No matter the size, contributions always have a significant impact and make a difference. Life Changers is grateful for every gift that is sent our way. Thank you for being a part of what God is building here!
Can I Give In-Kind Gifts of Stocks or Bonds?
Of course! There can be tremendous tax benefits for you by giving in-kind gifts. It’s straightforward. Visit https://lifechangerschurch.com/non-cash-gifts
Are My Gifts Tax-Deductible?
All gifts to Life Changers Church, whether via the regular offering or this Heart for the House Outreach offering, are tax-deductible. Please include your name and address when you give so that a receipt can be sent to you for your tax preparations. You are not required to utilize a tax deduction for your gift, but it is available.
