What accountability is there for Doxology finances?
The Doxology Bible Church finances are maintained by the Doxology Finance Department and overseen by a Business Manager who reports to the Executive Pastor. The Business Manager & Executive Pastor are accountable to a Finance Team of deacons, elders and staff who serve at the request of the Board of Elders. The Finance Team meets and reviews the Financial Statements on a monthly basis. The Doxology financial statements are all audited on a yearly basis by an independent, outside public accounting firm.
What is the FORT WORTH | FOR GOOD fund?
"Fort Worth | For Good" is an initiative that launched in February 2022. The goal is to continue our multiplying effort by launching a congregation in the Alliance area, so that one of the most rapidly growing areas in the country has communities of people who believe they’re sent into neighborhoods to genuinely love Jesus and intentionally love their neighbors - that congregation had it's first service on September 11, 2022. Also to seek and celebrate partnerships that allow us to stretch our reach and strengthen our serve so that everyone in Fort Worth has an increasing opportunity to flourish and thrive toward God’s Good plan - one of those is our partnership with South Hills Elementarty and our Hero2Hero program.
What is the BEYOND ORDINARY fund?
In the Fall of 2013, the Congregation was invited to join a BEYOND ORDINARY vision for launching the next generation and loving next door. As a part of that, hundreds of families made financial commitments over and above their normal giving at Doxology to ensure we are able to be good stewards over the people He sends us to develop as Christ-centered people who make a difference.
Does Doxology really give 15% of every dollar to missions?
We really do. Doxology believes in developing Christ-centered people who make a difference and we want to put our money where our mouth is. We invest 13.3% of our contributions to more than 50 global and local ministry partnerships, and 1.7% to other strategic initiatives. We believe in investing where God is working and want to model that as a church. However, we would never want Doxology's partnerships to be a substitute for your own individual involvement. In addition to what you might choose to give to Doxology, we would always encourage you to invest directly with a mission you believe in. If you are interested in a mission you could get directly involved with, please contact our Mobilization Team.
What kinds of fees are associated with gifts that I make to Doxology?
There are only nominal bank deposit fees associated with cash and checks that you give directly to Doxology through the offering on the weekends or by mail. There are also nominal fees associated with Drafts that you directly initiate through your bank. Fees associated with the other methods of giving are: Online Credit and Debit cards 2.7% + $0.30 per transaction, Online eCheck/ACH – only 0.70% per transaction. Please note: The above fees are not paid by the giver, but rather are charged to Doxology. Thanks for considering giving in ways that minimize fees.
