Current Impact Initiative
Impact is our annual year-end initiative by which we increase our ability to fund local & global strategic partnerships, church planting, and intentional outreach events in the community. Below are some of the gospel opportunities we had this year because of our church family’s generous giving!
Impact Goal by December 31:
It has been our heart from the beginning that we partner generously with other gospel-hearted organizations, such that we have it in our DNA to give in increasing measure as we grow. By God’s grace, our impact goal is 15x what it was when we first launched six years ago! 100% of Impact goes out to our non-profit partners, church plants, and into the local community through events. With God’s help, together we can make a far greater impact than we could on our own.
Will you prayerfully consider making a year-end gift to increase our kingdom impact in 2023?
We seek to meet both physical & spiritual needs, coming alongside local non-profit organizations & ministries to support their initiatives. We do this through giving, serving, and praying.

About ten churches committed to help Current get started six years ago. If not for God moving through local churches, Current would not have the impact we see today. We now have the privilege to pay it forward.
In 2022, we have at least $60,000 in partnership grants to distribute toward church plants in the Bay Area. We are piloting our first Current Church Plant Grant process, inviting local church plants such as these to apply.

When the war hit in March, we were quickly and providentially connected with two gospel partners on the ground, through which Current provided $27,500 worth of relief and care in Jesus’ name, including support for a Vacation Bible School in the midst of the crisis this summer. (1) Mission Ukraine, Korean missionaries who set up a refugee shelter in Uzhhorod; and (2) Evangelical Baptist Church of Polonne, a local church providing food & shelter to refugees.
Continued partnership with AMG’s Afghan, Kurdish, and Syrian refugee outreach programs. $10,000 to provide Christmas meal and food distribution supplies this holiday season.
