How do I know that my offering is being used for Kingdom purposes?

At University Parkway Church we have implemented systems and budgets that require your giving dollars to be allocated specifically towards Kingdom work. There are multiple checks and balances in place that constantly monitor our systems. We also subject ourselves to an annual voluntary external audit; the result of which is published here on the website.

How do I give to a particular location or designation?

All of our giving options allow you to designate the location you are giving to as well as note your donation as tithe, heart for the house, offering or missions.

Why should I give?
