did you know:
We tithed $50B in 2015
20% or $10B of our church budgets are spent on utilities & maintenance.
Yet 2% or $1B was spent on cross cultural missions.
What if we could save 10% of our energy spend and redirect to the to the most vulnerable.
We could double missional giving through redirected every savings.
Our vision is to equip the most vulnerable areas by working through the local church leveraging energy savings, energy management & sustainable principals. Our aim is to impact the world through the eyes of a church facility manager, pastor & student. In 2015 we, the church, spent almost $10 billion on energy and maintenance of our facilities, yet $1 billion on missions. Imagine what we could do if we were able to equip missions through maintenance and energy savings, we could double or triple our missional giving. We believe the church can save 20% through no cost sustainability principles. In order to change the hands we must change the heart. We are currently partnering with the local church in the US, Nepal, India, Kenya, Myanmar & Congo DR.
As stated we use our experience in energy management, over 40 years experience, over 5,000 energy studies, Solar, Wind and more as a means to equip the local church to stand with the most vulnerable. As of today we are working through both the US church as well as the church in India, Nepal and Congo to stand with those in the midst of conflict, extreme poverty, & more.
The second biggest budget item in most facilities is the cost to run the building (utility & maintenance cost). According to the EPA up to 30% of the energy we use is wasted. The idea of capturing these savings, through energy conservation services, is attractive in many ways, as the savings can be poured back into other budgets. Once an organization is convinced of energy management, the first place to start is with an energy study (more in-depth when compared to an energy audit). The goal of any study is not an end, but rather a beginning, and should be focused on uncovering ALL energy use practices. Imagine how 30% energy savings could empower missions & environment. We do not charge a % of energy savings as our mission is to see 100% poured back into missions.
