Dear Friends,

We get to hear story after story of how Resurrection has changed the lives of people across the U.S. and the globe! We are energized by the opportunity to reach and help all ages grow in their faith through our Online & TV community. Ryan and I have been discussing and praying about what we might do to make the largest single contribution we’ve ever made. For us, this sacrifice will require putting off some things, re-ordering priorities, and getting creative. When Ryan and I reflected on what God has done for us in the past and what Resurrection means to us, making this sacrifice is worthwhile. 

Pastor Ashley Morgan Kirk, Online Connection & Care Pastor

Over the past 33 years, we have seen God at work through the generations. The investments of those who came before us planted seeds that have grown and flourished. Now, it’s our turn to make bold commitments and invest in current and future generations.

Adam Hamilton, Senior Pastor

What's Next?

The need is to raise $1 million in a three-year campaign to:

•   Expand worship on TV to five major US cities 

•   Expand our digital outreach and awareness advertising efforts to reach new people around the world 

•   Expand online resources and content offerings for classes, groups, support and care

Online Stories of Impact

Resurrection Online was an opportunity for me to have a community of faith at a time when being in person wasn’t an option. Our youngest son, Jude, was born January 2020 with congenital heart disease, requiring several procedures and an open-heart surgery in his first couple of years. My husband, Jesse, is also an ER Physician, so attending any in-person events was not an option for us for a while. Resurrection Online was there for us when I needed someone to be there and just help us walk through a very scary time in our life. I built relationships through online Bible Study, Book Club, Small Group and Virtual Mission Trips. Now I get to continue those relationships with others from across the country virtually and in person with other Dallas-area Resurrection Online worshippers.

- The Standifer Family

We love Resurrection Online.  Our family joined Church of the Resurrection when we lived in Overland Park.  In 2014, we relocated to Frisco, TX for a new job.  While we were excited about moving to Dallas, there were two things that we missed the most – our family and Church of the Resurrection.  Resurrection Online has allowed us to stay engaged with our church family and receive God’s Word.  I travel occasionally for business and having the ability to worship online is an added bonus.  Although we are no longer in Kansas, we still feel very connected to the church.

Resurrection Brookside Story

Greg and Laura Coy

Our historic building tells a wonderful story of hope that generations of Christians have held for the future. We love continuing that story as Resurrection Brookside

invests in a space for the community.

Pay Down Debt and Expand Ministry

One of the goals of this campaign is to pay down some of our debt from previous building projects. A portion of our annual ministry budget goes to debt service. By reducing this debt and the associated interest, more funds will be directly available for programming, missions, and outreach.

A Vision for 2030

In 2019 our congregation helped shape, and then approved, a set of visions for the year 2030. Creating the right tools for ministry with new and remodeled spaces and reducing our debt will allow us to more effectively live into these visions:

  • Closing the Spiritual Gap by helping our congregation and community grow in their faith
  • Closing the Generational Gap by reaching future generations for Christ
  • Closing the Kindness and Justice Gap by helping our city and world look more like the Kingdom of God
  • Closing the Opportunity Gap through efforts focused on education with an emphasis on PreK education and by addressing poverty

Campaign Timeline & Next Steps

Two Commitments. One Purpose.

Annual Ministry Fund

Your commitment to the Annual Ministry Fund makes possible all the mission and ministry at Resurrection. Your generosity and commitment to join us in closing the gap between where the world is and where it could be is the lifeblood of the church. 

Generation to Generation

This capital campaign commitment, over and above your regular offering, will make possible creating and improving facilities to help us in passing on the faith from generation to generation.

Begin with prayer.

Pray for this campaign, specifically that God will give our leaders wisdom and touch the hearts of our congregation. 

Pray for personal discernment as you consider how God is calling you to invest in a church for generations today and tomorrow. 

Pray this simple prayer daily:

God, you have called us to tell coming generations of your glorious deeds. Grant us vision to know the plans you have for your church, and give us the conviction, courage and boldness to pursue them. Amen.

Determine your commitment.

The success of the campaign will require a commitment from us all to complete the building designs and achieve our goals. A sacrificial gift is an opportunity to take a bold step in your spiritual journey, make a sacrificial gift to invest in God’s work, and experience the joy of knowing that you will be sharing Jesus with current and future generations.


Give as a Family

Family Resources

Parents, this is an opportunity to discuss giving with your children. Our children’s ministry team has designed activities and a Talk & Tunes resource with these conversations in mind. Share with your children how you make giving decisions. Talk about the difference you want to make, and work as a family to find other ways to make an impact. Download printable versions of these resources by clicking the buttons below.

Qualified Charitable Distribution Information

If you have an IRA, consider contributing through a Qualified Charitable Distribution. A QCD is a direct transfer of funds from an IRA custodian, payable to a qualified charity like Resurrection. These gifts expand the impact of your giving, because instead of paying taxes on the money, every dollar goes directly to mission and ministry. Seek advice from a financial advisor to determine the best way to maximize this opportunity. For more information visit or click the button below.

Giving Online

Setting up a recurring gift at Resurrection is a convenient and secure way to manage your giving. Use this link for easy-to-use steps.  As you set up your gifts, be sure to read carefully as you enter your giving amount and frequency.

Spiritual Discernment Guide

Our sacrificial gifts to the church, above and beyond our annual ministry fund gift or tithe, over the next three years towards the Generation to Generation capital campaign will provide resources that will impact thousands and thousands of lives for generations to come. Making a sacrificial gift is something that requires prayerful discernment, and it will take each of us to make the goals of this campaign a reality. As you embark on this spiritual journey, this devotional is designed to help you prayerfully seek God’s calling as you consider what He is asking you to sacrifice to be a part of ensuring spaces for all generations at Resurrection, today and into the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

While our plans for the Generation to Generation campaign involve converting our existing storage room (room 027) into a Youth space, we believe that we will still have enough space on-site for the tables, chairs, etc that are used on a weekly basis. We believe that rest of the items in the storage room can be stored offsite (the missions center, etc), or donated to make space for ministry.

Yes – though the proposed plans (finishing our existing building and clearing debt) would be a necessary first step before expanding outside of our existing walls. This does not commit to (or against) our previously expressed long-term plans. The pandemic has changed church trends and building needs, and so we have structured a campaign that will prepare us for the broadest number of possible futures. This campaign allows us to prepare for whatever comes next (whether it is that plan or another one), while gaining clarity on post-pandemic needs and building stronger foundations.

We project this building campaign will cost $1.4 million, which our consultants tell us is within the reasonable range for a church our size – that would provide for the new youth space, a reconfiguring of much of the lower level, debt reduction, and key sanctuary upgrades. If we come in above expectation, our building committee will prioritize upgrades in our Sanctuary and Youth room. If we come in under projections, our building committee will guide us through the process of expansion or cutting, with the top priority as finishing out 027 into a youth space. Children’s ministry spaces and debt reduction will come next.

The campaign commitment period begins October 1, 2023 and ends December 31, 2026 making it possible for you to utilize 4 tax years to contribute to your commitment.

We will tell the next
the praiseworthy deeds
of the LORD, his power, and
the wonders he has done...
so the next
would know them,
even the children yet to be born,
and they in turn
would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust
in God.
Psalm 78:4b, 6-7a
