Our Faith Forward plan was developed by a team of Soma Church members.  This team's commission was to cast vision for the future financial health of our church.  The team identified three specific areas of financial need to support the ministry growth of our church.

Hire Pastoral/Administration staff
Save for expansion of current facility
Additional principal payment for debt relief
5 year 2016-2020 Fundraising Vision 

$750,000 total

$200,000 for additional staff

$250,000 for expansion of facility

$300,000 for debt relief

Soma Church


Hire Pastoral/Administration staff as determined by Pastor Shaun and reviewed by Elder Board.


Over 5 years, this totals $40,000 a year

These dollars will be transferred to other items in vision as church grows and current budget can absorb staff increase.  We will raise half of staff salary in savings before hire.


Save for expansion of current facility


Replacement/move mobile units

Expand sanctuary/replacement of offices

Fellowship/Thrive Group meeting space

These dollars will be put in savings providing a cash reserve for expansion.

Piggy Bank


Additional principal payment on current loan for debt relief.


Pay off Debt!

$300,000 in 5 years toward principal would equal ~ 566,000 in total principal payment including current payment cutting our current debt in half

This does not include interest saved!!
