How our Budget Works

In 2012, we moved from an annual budget model to a weekly budget model that is more scalable as we grow.

The new model is based on the number of adults at Mars Hill Church each week. We want to make sure that our weekly spending per adult does not exceed our weekly giving per adult. Income and expenses vary from month to month, along with attendance, but our goal looks like this chart.

Positive margin each week allows us to maintain sufficient cash reserves and be prepared for any unexpected opportunities God may provide.

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21

It's All About Jesus

Jesus was a man who claimed to be God. Think on that for a minute. If that were true, how would it change the way you thought, felt, and lived this life?

At Mars Hill, we believe that Jesus is God. We take him at his word. Because of this, everything we do is all about Jesus. We invite you to learn more about this man who is God and how you can find forgiveness and new life in him.

The Mars Hill Guide Leadership at Mars Hill

We value community

Church is more than a service. It’s people living life together and helping one another throughout our cities to serve our cities. Each week, thousands of people at Mars Hill meet in hundreds of small communities to learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, and live. We call these Community Groups—and they’re the heart of our church.
