FAQs

Over 10,000 people walk through our building every week, and we want it to reflect who we are and our passion for Jesus Christ. For Generation to Generation 2 to be successful, we must embrace our roles as stewards of Columbia and invest in our future while taking on a minimal amount of debt.

Our building proposal is $17.8 million. We’ve already raised $10.2 million in pledges and have received $7.1 million. Once we have $10.5 million pledged, we will obtain financing for the balance, break ground and begin construction.

Q: I donated to G2G, do I need to also donate to G2G2?

A: Thank you for donating to the G2G campaign! It was the most successful capital campaign in the history of Columbia! However, we still need additional funds to build our new front door to Washington and the world. Your G2G2 pledge will be in addition to your G2G pledge.

Q: How much money was donated to G2G?

A: In 2013, $5.5 million was pledged to G2G. We have received approximately, $3.3 million from those pledges.

A: This is an all new pledge. This is in addition to your G2G pledge.

Q: When should I start paying on my G2G2 pledge?

A: We recommend that you begin paying on your G2G2 pledge right away. If you still need to complete your G2G pledge, you can either wait until that pledge is complete or pay on both pledges at the same time. It’s up to you.

Q: How long do I have to fulfill my pledge?

A: We recommend fulfilling your pledge over the course of three years with weekly or monthly donations. However, you are welcome to complete your pledge earlier!
