Letter From Rev. Daniel Humbert
Since the very beginning, it has been the passion of those at
Trietsch to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
That drive for a personal relationship with Christ and others is what
caused such rapid growth in our early years.
Because of that growth, Trietsch was constantly in need of
larger and more facilities to meet the demands of reaching new
people. The generosity of the congregation has always risen to the
challenge to meet this high demand. Even given that generous spirit,
the facilities we enjoy today were financed in order to accelerate
our capacity to reach new people for Christ.
We are now at a critical moment in the history of Trietsch.
The Finance Committee and the Leadership Board have unanimously chosen to take steps to UNSHACKLE the church from some of the burden of debt so we can commit ourselves more fully to biblical relevancy, radical love and servant ministry.
Our combined debt is $7,700,430, requiring us to pay over $455,000 yearly. We do not want to remain in bondage to this debt. The time is now to step forward in faith and UNSHACKLE ourselves from this burden. The reason is simple: by reducing this debt, more funds are freed for transforming lives and serving others.
Together, we can UNSHACKLE the church to do more! Join us this spring as we commit to reduce our debt and enlarge our hearts for the sake of Christ.

Not Equal Share, But Equal Sacrifice
The concept of equal giving has never existed
at our church. Instead, we believe that the
sacrifice should be equal. This ensures that
there is a role in this capital funding campaign
for every member of the church. Everyone’s
sacrifice is important if we are to be successful.
Your financial involvement is a decision
between you and the Lord. Giving is a part of
worship, but giving must come from your heart
to please God. You will never be pressured,
nor told what you should give. However, we
ask that you pray to discern God’s will for your
participation in the campaign.
We are asking the Trietsch family to step up in faith by
giving above and beyond their tithe and offerings to help us
become UNSHACKLED from our debt and free us to do more. In April, we will ask you to commit financially to
the campaign. Please pray daily over this campaign and
pray about what God wants you to do. Prayer is the most
critical component of UNSHACKLED.
Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.” John 11:44b (NRSV)
