Why We Give

Generosity originates with the generous love of God. It changes our hearts in a way that makes a difference in our world.

There are certain traits that define the culture of a group ... traits that come naturally and are expected. For The Bayou Church, one of those is generosity. Generosity defines the way we interact with each other and with the world. Our mission to transform Acadiana through Christ-centered relationships requires courageous generosity. If we all take a bold step toward faithful giving, we will see God use our obedience to change our world, together.
