We will maximize our current campuses (Lakeshore, Westchase, Harbor, Online) to their fullest redemptive potential to reach Tampa Bay and beyond.
We will multiply new campuses in Tampa Bay to connect all neighborhoods to a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.
We will mobilize in mission 30,000 disciples of Jesus Christ by 2030 for the transformation of the world. #30by30
We built a now-flourishing church in Iraq in the face of many obstacles.
Bay Hope became the title sponsor for the Bay Star Family Retreat for families affected by pediatric cancer. That also includes 35 Bay Hope families serving that weekend.
We purchased a van for At-Risk-Kids Ministries, facilitating the start of the SKP Schools Initiative. We will have served 20 Title 1 schools in Hillsborough County in our first school year of the new program.
We continued to retire the debt on our Lakeshore Campus expansion and renovation, as well as making much-needed improvements to the facilities at our Westchase and USF campuses.
We will build a safe home for survivors of human trafficking. This will help us show and teach these traumatized teens about the love of Jesus through restorative care and life skills training with our No More Mission Partners.
We will build a women's discipleship home for women experiencing homelessness through our Amazing Love Mission Partners.
We will purchase an RV-type vehicle to take our Beautiful Beginnings Boutique on the road providing clothing and supplies to girls in need. Some of them are in juvenile justice programs who typically leave the facilities with nothing. Others are in alternative schools, foster care and group homes among others.
We will beautify and enhance the functionality of our existing campuses to accommodate the tremendous growth we've seen in the last two years.
We will continue to responsibly retire the debt we still hold for our facilities.
God is calling Bay Hope Church to maximize our current campuses to their fullest redemptive potential for Jesus. Your prayers and financial support will make it possible to significantly reduce our current building debt, while accomplishing much-needed projects on each campus:
LED lighting for Sanctuary
Lobby Refresh of Furniture and painting
Finished bathroom remodel
Studio B renovations
God is calling us to multiply campuses of Bay Hope Church so that everyone in Tampa Bay can be within a 20 minute driving distance of a Bay Hope Campus. Bay Hope offers a welcoming, refreshing, and dynamic opportunity for people to get connected to Jesus and experience a faith-filled community of Christ-followers.
We are intentional and strategic about this calling. Therefore we have created the staff position of Executive Director of Multisite Ministry. We are thrilled that Jon Michael Richardson is our new Executive Director of Multisite. He will be our point person for multiplying the life-changing impact of Bay Hope in creative and consistent ways in Tampa Bay.
Your generosity to 3M helps to fund the multiplying love and impact of Bay Hope. Please join together in praying for God to lead us exactly where He wants us to go next as we share the love of Jesus with our community.
The real goal of 3M at Bay Hope is not to maximize or multiply. Those are simply the necessary steps we take to position ourselves for the ultimate goal of 3M - MOBILIZE!
God is calling us to mobilize in mission thirty-thousand disciples of Jesus by the year 2030 for the transformation of Tampa Bay. Your generosity to 3M will turbo-charge our efforts to make more and maturing disciples and be on mission with our local and international mission partners.
Please use this list of our mission partners as a prayer guide and reminder of what you are funding through your first fruits and 2-year pledges to 3M at Bay Hope.

Attend weekend services during the 3M Campaign series to learn more about what our church is doing and what God is directing us to in the future.
As you consider your involvement in this campaign, pray that God would give you guidance about what your participation will look like. If you are married, pray together with your spouse about your contribution.
These first fruits gifts allow us to invest immediately in building a Christian City in ICM Iraq, sponsoring a BayStar Family Retreat, and securing a van to continue our ARK ministries.
God is looking for equal sacrifice, not equal gifts. To sacrifice means to willingly give the best you have for a purpose greater than yourself. We are all asked to give to the 3M Campaign sacrificially above and beyond our regular giving to the Operations Budget. Pray that God will impress a specific amount on your heart for a one-time First Fruits Gift and your Two-Year Pledge.
