Jesus once said in Matthew 6:21, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” For the hundreds of families that make up Life Church, this statement couldn’t be more true. God bless you for your devotion to the kingdom of God. Your investment of “treasure” is being used in furthering the cause of Christ in metro Houston and around the world. On behalf of every single person whose life has been changed, thank you for doing your part to make it possible.
We attempt to be as transparent as possible, trusting you to trust us. What you can’t see, however, is the intangible, untraceable work of the heart. As many of you have invested your treasure here, many of you have also invested your heart. You serve every week in ministry, which may not grant you tons of accolades. You invest countless hours of prayer and fasting into a personal, vibrant relationship with Christ – without reward or recognition. We may be able to account for your treasure, but only eternity can reveal the investments of your heart.
Life Church is committed to being a river, not a reservoir. As you invest your heart and treasure with us, we’ll provide a constant flow of excellent ministries, dynamic weekend worship experiences and a gut-deep belief that this local church is the hope of the world. God has trusted us with much, and He requires much of us.
Our Church Board is comprised of eight respected business leaders in our congregation. They serve as non-staff Elders and oversee all buildings and properties and ensure that we are good stewards with the money you have entrusted to the church.
To ensure our business operations are conducted at the highest standards, and comply with applicable IRS rules and regulations, Life Church undergoes a voluntary financial audit annually. For over 15 years, Life has retained the services of an outside, certified public accounting firm to conduct a full audit of the churches books and records. For 14 of those years, the firm of Pickens Snodgrass Koch, LLC (“PSK”), based in Ft. Worth, Texas, has conducted the audit. PSK specializes in churches and conducts audits for over 100 churches and district organizations throughout Texas. This CPA firm issued an unqualified opinion, affirming that the books and records of Life Church have been maintained in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and that no material discrepancies were found. The audits also confirmed the absence of misappropriation of funds or fraud.
We’ve invested tens of thousands of dollars not only into this beautiful campus and our local ministries, but also in ministries of compassion, help and hope around the globe. Thank you Life Church for acting locally and reaching globally.
For these blessings, these investments of your heart, and your treasure, we are truly thankful.
