What is Vision Builders?
Vision Builders is our 'over and above' giving program at Awaken City for members and friends to help BUILD a home of worship for current and future generations to come, REACH others with the gospel of Jesus Christ both locally and globally, RAISE and empower disciple makers, and CARE through practical help.
'1 in a Million' Project
Our 1 in a Million Project launched in June 2017, with the aim to raise $1 million dollars in 3 years for the following purposes:
BUILD by completing renovations on our current facilities and reducing our mortgage by 2020, to bring greater financial freedom to Awaken City.
REACH others with the gospel of Jesus Christ both locally and globally through our 'REACH' missions program in Australia, Africa, Asia, Central America and more.
RAISE and empower disciple-makers by leading and coaching them through a journey to Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose and Make a Difference.
CARE with practical help, including Ending Homelessness in Western Australia (EHIWA), which is a ministry of Awaken City that provides housing to people without homes, whilst implementing a holistic approach to wellbeing through care and support.

Frequently asked questions
Can I give anonymously without a Commitment Card?
Yes. You can give anonymously without a Commitment Card. However, records of past payments are only provided to those who give with Commitment Cards.
Can I put my Tithe into Vision Builders instead?
At Awaken CIty, we see tithes and offerings in scripture serving two unique purposes. Firstly, the Tithe, is dedicated to the ministry of the church and provides for pastoral care, discipleship and growth. (Staff pastors, church running expenses, etc.). Secondly, Offerings (such as Vision Builders) are dedicated to the vision of the church (buildings, extension services, benevolent projects like EHIWA) and funding these endeavours into the future. With that in mind, we encourage you to see Vision Builders as ‘over and above’ regular Tithing.
Can I set up a Direct Debit?
Yes. We have direct debit / credit options, to allow for your convenience and efficiency. Email email@example.com for more information.
What if I can't fulfil my commitment on time?
We encourage you to make prayerful and wise decisions when choosing your level of giving. If you find you can't fulfil your commitment within the allocated time, we suggest breaking it down into smaller amounts in part-payments over a longer period of time. We are also happy for you to simply communicate you are unable to continue with your commitment in writing so we can adjust our records.
