There Is More isn’t just a slogan—it’s a call to push beyond the familiar, to dive headfirst into our future, and to dream bigger. It’s about feeling this deep, real connection with Jesus and others, and sensing a bigger purpose—a force, an energy—that’s so much greater than just us.
A Message from Our Pastor
Now, here’s the exciting part: we’ve launched the There Is More Fund. Think of it as our rocket fuel. It’s here to power up our bold, five-year plan to see 100 million lives engaged, transformed, or saved.

“There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!”
Romans 5:3-5 MSG

In 2018, we said we’d deploy a massive 5+ year global evangelistic effort, utilizing new technology and media initiatives, to engage 300 million with the good news of the Gospel. We believed Jesus for a harvest of 30 million souls saved and lives transformed.
We have enlarged our global footprint and expanded our ministry outreach to more than 500 million people — through humanitarian outreaches, television, online experiences, podcasts, YouVersion devotionals, Fast From Wrong Thinking material, digital communications, mobile apps, and social media platforms.
We’ve built a tent city for earthquake victims in Turkey, built earthquake-proof homes in Haiti, distributed Solar Audio Bibles, provided much-needed humanitarian aid in many nations struck with war and devastation such as Ukraine, and fed and cared for the multitudes in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Peru, and even locally through our weekly food pantries near our home base in Chicago – just like Acts 1:8, “You shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
We’ve translated ten of Pastor Gregory Dickow’s anointed teachings and a salvation message into nine languages, including Urdu, English, Russian, Portuguese, Arabic, Chinese (simplified), Hindi, French, and Spanish. These languages are spoken by half the world — an estimated 4 billion people.
We not only met our 5-year goal, but we also exceeded it!
“Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.” Eph 3:20-21 TPT
None of this would have been possible without YOU!
Thank you to our church community, partners, ministry friends, and more!
“The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped.”
Implementing our strategies and achieving our goals will require an investment of $5 million dollars — that’s only five cents per life engaged, transformed, or saved.
We know that we cannot do this alone. It is through your prayers, partnership, and God's provision that we can achieve our goal and bring the message of Jesus' love to the ends of the earth.
Whether you've been with us since the beginning or you're just now joining our mission, every act of generosity counts. Consider this:
- $3 will help us provide food for a day for a girl trapped in modern-day slavery.
- $30 will help us sponsor a child’s literacy reading program in an elementary school.
- $300 will help provide solar audio Bibles that will reach 200+ people in remote villages.
- $3,000 will help us develop resources and training to impact one million teenagers.
- $30,000 will significantly help reach our bold goal of one-billion lives engaged, transformed, or saved.
If everyone reading this gave according to their ability, imagine the global transformation we could achieve! I want to encourage you to lean into the Holy Spirit and prayerfully consider how you can be a part of this next great chapter in our God story.
Today, I invite you to act. Whether it’s a modest contribution of $3, a heartfelt gift of $30, a substantial pledge of $300, a visionary commitment of $3,000, a transformative donation of $30,000, or an extraordinary investment of $300,000 or more, each dollar propels us toward our shared goals.
