Free The Future

In Biblical times, when harvest time came, God called his people to bring their “first fruits”— the first yield from their harvest to him as an offering. This demonstrated their obedience and reverence for God, and showed that they trusted Him to provide for them.

The Hebrew word for first fruit is ‘bikkurim’—literally translated to “promise to come.” For the Israelites, giving first fruits was freeing their future. It honored God and it also provoked Him to bless all their future harvest that came afterward.

In 2022, we are challenging every single person who considers themselves part of our church family to give a first-fruit offering early next year. Our desire is to complete the payment of the mortgage on our Hill City headquarters, and get us out of debt so that we can accelerate our ministry capacity and be able to turn even more ordinary people into fearless influencers of society, across Africa, and the gateway cities of our world.

  • WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FIRST FRUITS AND TITHIING?

    To give a tithe means that you give a tenth of your income to your church. Tithes are generally given throughout the entire year. Tithes are meant to be given in an automatic sense of obedience after you receive your income–e.g., paycheck, commission, bonus. 

    First fruit offerings are typically an annual gift to the church done at “harvest time.” Because we’re not actually harvesting crops, the harvest can mean different things to different people. paybe you prayed for a job and you just got your first paycheck. Or Perhaps you just got a bonus at work. Or you are in business and you’ve got a big client in your business who has paid you their first cheque. Maybe you’ve just received the first dividends from your investments or your first rent cheque. Or maybe it’s the first paycheck of the year. These are all harvest time moments when your hard work paid off. These are also great opportunities to turn back to God in gratitude for the blessings. 

  • WHAT ARE THE RESOURCES BEING USED FOR?

    When we were settling into our global Mavuno headquarters in 2013-2014, we received pledges totalling to USD 3.5M (Ksh. 350M). God’s people were extremely generous and gave a total of USD 2.2M (Ksh. 220M). However, as soon as we moved, we encountered great disruption, and many people who had made good-faith pledges were unable to immediately fulfill their pledges. In order to settle us, we acquired a bank facility worth USD 1.7M (Ksh. 170M).

    We have been slowly paying off this amount, however with payments on both the principal amount and the significant interest payments, not to mention the disruption of the global pandemic, the USD 1.6M (Ksh. 160M) that we have paid off so far, has still left us with a significant balance of USD 1.7M (Ksh. 170M).

    We are trusting God that together, and through His provision in our lives, we will clear this amount by September 2022.

  • HOW WILL WE RAISE THE REQUIRED AMOUNT?

    We have seen God come through for us as individuals and as a movement in the past, and we are believing to do so again. In years past, Mavunites have given both sacrificially and generously, committing one month’s salary towards the ministry, and have seen God come through for us in miraculous ways.

    We believe that if each one of us was faithful, and gives the equivalent of one month’s salary between January and September 2022, we will see God’s hand of deliverance over us, both as individuals, and as a family.

  • WHAT IF I AM IN BUSINESS AND DO NOT HAVE A SALARY?

    Our call is to consider giving the equivalent of one’s months income. We ask that each of us prayerfully considers a sacrificial amount that aptly reflects this.

  • WHAT WILL IT MEAN FOR US TO PAY OFF OUR MOVEMENT HEADQUARTERS?

    As the Mavuno movement, we are currently making monthly repayments of USD 25,000 (Ksh. 2.5M) with all our local and international campuses contributing towards this. This is a significant amount, and it keeps us from focusing on the work of ministry. We have been called to turn ordinary people into Fearless Influencers of Society, and we know that there are thousands of men and women in our families, neighbourhoods, workplaces and across our cities who are desperately in need of Jesus.

    Our desire is to accelerate the work of ministry and increase our capacity so that we can extend our reach and begin the process of discipling them and their families. With God’s help, we believe we can do this.

  • HOW CAN I MAKE A PLEDGE?

    We have a simple and intuitive application that can be accessed via www.freethefuture.mavunochurch.org. Regardless of what country you are in, you can make a contribution through a variety of platforms, whether mobile money, bank transfers or personal cheques.

    However, whichever way you choose, we encourage you to access the application and create a personal account that will help both you and the church to keep track of pledges and fulfilments.

  • WHAT PAYMENT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE?

    If you visit our local application via www.freethefuture.mavunochurch.org, you will be able to see all the various payments gateways. If you still need more information, your local Mavuno campus will be in a position to provide you with all the relevant campus details.

  • WHAT IF I ALREADY PLEDGED IN DECEMBER 2021?

    Many of our leaders across the movement made their pledges in December 2021, and made pledges amounting to almost USD 100,000 (Ksh. 18M).

    If you have already made your pledge, please access the application and create an account using the personal details you indicated on your pledge card. Once you log-in, you will find that your pledge details have already been loaded onto the system.

  • HOW IS THE DATA BEING MANAGED AND SECURED?

    At Mavuno Church we take the privacy of our data extremely seriously and treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations. Our policy is not just an exercise in complying with the law, but a continuation of our respect for you and your personal information.

    We have significant controls that ensure that only a very select number of people, not even our pastors, across the entire movement will have access to any sensitive data regarding your data.

  • CAN I EDIT MY PLEDGE DETAILS ON THE SYSTEM?

    We encourage you to very prayerfully and carefully consider the pledge that you are making even as you fill out the details on the application. Numbers 30 tells us that once you make a pledge to God, it is important that you honour it. However, if you make an error on the system as you enter your pledge, or need to upgrade it, there is a facility available on the application for the same.

  • WHAT IF I AM A FRIEND/PARTNER LOOKING TO MAKE A CONTRIBUTION?

    We invite friends, both personal and institutions of Mavuno to partner with us in this venture You can contribute either a one-off annual payment or monthly or quarterly payments.

  • HOW IS MAVUNO ACCOUNTABLE WITH THE RESOURCES THEY COLLECT?

    As a church community, we believe in the power of accountability and transparency. We believe we are called to be good stewards of the resources that God’s people commit to His house for His work. As a result, we find it critical that we not only comply with the governing authorities and their requirements of us as a registered society, but more so that God’s people can know how their resources (tithes and offerings) are being utilised to further the cause of Christ in our generation.

    We routinely make our audited accounts available for public perusal, and you can find a link to them HERE (https://www.mavunochurch.org/our-audited-accounts/).
