All South Texas Presbytery churches are eligible for membership in Reach South Texas. This collaboration with South Texas Presbytery uniquely positions RST to address the specific needs of church planting in the South Texas region. Because we live, work, and worship within these communities, we are able to address the particular needs of this region and of the newly planted churches who serve them.
THREE TIERS OF INVOLVEMENT
Churches may choose one of three levels of involvement:
- Pastor Supporter (1%)
- Congregation Participant (1.75%)
- Kingdom Multiplier (2.75%, not required to exceed $60,000)
Financial commitments, regardless of tier status, are based on the total undesignated contributions from the previous calendar or fiscal year. It is also the expectation that all member churches, regardless of their Reach South Texas participation level, shall financially support South Texas Presbytery at a minimum of .75% of the previous year's undesignated contributions.
All newly planted churches shall commit 1% of regular, undesignated contributions in year one after weekly Sunday worship begins. Year two and until particularization, church plants shall commit 1.75% of regular, undesignated contributions. Upon particularization, it is the expectation that churches planted by RST shall participate at the Kingdom Multiplier level.
