Online Generosity Calculator

As Commitment Day on Sun, Feb 24, approaches, Houston's First has provided a simple online generosity calculator as a tool for planning your two-year commitment to the MISSION 1:8 vision.

Located on the Resources page in the MISSION 1:8 section of our website, the calculator uses your annual income to show what your total annual giving would be at six different percentages of your income.

The percentages are grouped into different steps on the generosity ladder that Pastor Gregg has referenced throughout his MISSION 1:8 message series:

  • Intentional — giving consistently, but less than 10% of your income
    (The calculator provides contributions at 3%, 5% and 8%.)  
  • Tithing — faithfully giving 10% of your income
    (The calculator provides contribution at 10%.) 
  • Extravagant — giving beyond 10% of your income
    (The calculator provides contributions at 12% and 15%.) 

In addition to revealing what your total annual giving would be at each of these percentage levels, it also breaks down the annual total into weekly, bi-weekly, monthly and quarterly contribution amounts. These breakdowns put the total annual giving amount into a more realistic perspective for budgeting purposes.

As you pray about your commitment to MISSION 1:8, use the generosity calculator as an additional resource. Ultimately, God will guide you to a certain amount or percentage of your income to contribute to the vision. The calculator can help you see how that commitment plays out in terms of regular contributions.
