How do I give?
Click the button below and select “building fund”
If you prefer writing a check, designate “building fund” on the memo line. You can drop your check in the giving boxes near the exits at the back of the worship center at any campus or mail them to 7540 LBJ Freeway, Dallas, TX 75251.
If I give to the general fund, will you use that toward the building fund as necessary?
We don't consider using our general fund for building spending until the entire year's budget is given.
Does Watermark use debt to purchase facilities?
Scripture speaks of debt with warning and often with consequences. We aren’t completely closed off to the idea of debt (because Scripture doesn’t expressly forbid it), but historically, Watermark has never taken on debt. The Dallas and Plano campuses were purchased with the resources God brought us. We do not intend to use debt.
How does this expansion fit into our master plan?
Our master plan is simple and what we put in place Day 1 – to be and make disciples – as laid out in Matthew 28:19-20. We do that in three ways:
- preach the gospel to anyone who needs to hear the gospel;
- encourage the faint-hearted; and
- equip the disciples every day.
If we’re looking beyond tomorrow in doing that, it’s because we’re looking at what might get in the way of us being able to continue to say “yes” to every opportunity that comes our way. We serve a perfect God on His perfect mission. Our long-term strategy is also our short-term strategy – to be and make disciples.
Are there other large churches that you have looked to as a model for growth in development?
Very few churches have the large midweek ministry focus that we do. Our Recovery (Monday), Young Adults (Tuesday) and Marriage (Wednesday) ministries appear to be the largest of their kind in the country. We have looked to other churches to gain wisdom on such topics as weekend services, satellite campuses vs church planting, etc. We have reviewed statistics from the 100 largest churches in the U.S. and have met with senior leaders at many of them. We will continue to seek counsel from other trusted leaders as God leads us.
