Celebrating 15 Years of Changed Lives!

God has been changing lives for 15 years now at TheBOD!  This year in review is simply a mirror of you. It’s your faithfulness to serve, love, pray and give you helped to make an eternal difference in the lives of others for 15 years and we’re looking forward to what he will do in the next 15. You played a role in every hand that was raised and every story that was changed in 2022.

Behind every hand that is raised is a story of someone’s life that is changed.  That person matters to us and they matter to God.

Stories Matter

We’re committed to sharing the stories God is telling through others at TheBOD.
Here are a few that we’ve had the honor of being a part this year.
The church is not a building, it’s the people.  Each week we gather to worship, celebrate, and serve God.  We’ve found purpose behind our passion and want to help everyone become the person God created them to be.

It’s one of the most meaningful steps we can experience as a follower of Christ – letting the world know of our decision to follow him.  That’s why we make a big deal about it. Check out a couple of the stories of life change below.

Every Sunday lives are changed, friendships are forged, marriages are strengthened, families are encouraged, and people are empowered to lead. At TheBOD, It’s our volunteers who allow themselves to be used by God that make the difference. One of the best ways to meet people, develop relationships, and grow as a follower of Christ is to serve the local church. We like to say there’s nothing more fun than serving God with people you love.

Your Church on Mission

Relief and Restoration

Beyond what happens in our personal lives and church experiences, sharing the love of Christ means bringing help and hope to people in need. We partner with community organizations, local churches, and focus on opportunities that span the globe.

God’s heart is for the orphan. So is ours. This year, TheBOD gave 


to support Care Portal, a nationwide network that connects local churches to foster care and adoptive family needs through local DHS workers.  


This year was particularly tough for so many. Because of your generosity we were able to provide immediate assistance to families. We gave over 


to provide help with utility assistance, gas vouchers, food supplements, rental assistance, and much more to over 200 families in the River Valley.

After showing up this past May with over 100 volunteers to make improvements and serve the residents of the Riverview Hope Campus in Fort Smith, your church gave


in grants to to help complete their recent expansion. Their mission is to provide comprehensive services to help people find a way out of homelessness and it’s our honor to partner with them.

Digital Missions

Every week God is changing lives. Every hand that is raised, every story shared, every baptism celebrated is a result of God using people in their local campus and community through their giving to impact lives all across the globe.  We partner with Life.Church digital missions to maximize every dollar we give toward this effort.

This year you helped translate the bible into over 100 languages in 36 different countries. Since beginning in 2017 you’ve played a part in helping translate the bible into a readable language for over 153 million people.

We’re making 2023 our most generous year yet!

Because we’ve seen all that God has done, we know this is just the beginning. What part will you play in the next decade? Generosity isn’t just something we do it’s a part of who we are at TheBOD. If you’re ready to see how God wants to use your generosity, tithing is a great first step.  It’s the beginning place of Christian generosity. You give above and beyond an offering, to help expand existing ministries and spaces to reach more people through Campus Development, launch churches in new communities through Spaces & Places, or invest in people in your community and around the world with a gift to Relief & Restoration.
