Board Update

Since our board update last month, the board of elders has met twice. The first meeting was a half-day offsite meeting on March 22 where we spent some time looking at and evaluating the current Ends for Centerpoint. As a reminder, the Ends answer the question: “Why does Centerpoint exist?” “For what purpose does Centerpoint exist?” “Who does Centerpoint benefit?” and they direct the work of the Board and the purpose of Centerpoint. Currently, the Ends include Worship, Discipleship, Missional Engagement, Multiplication, and Healthy Culture. The process of guiding our church with “Ends” is relatively new so we spent some time reacquainting ourselves with what is required for a properly structured “end”. We then spent some time on the five ends mentioned above, reaffirming those are the current ends for Centerpoint at this time. In an ongoing process, we will look closely at each end and determine if we need to tweak the structure and wording to provide additional direction for each.   

On April 8, the board met for its regularly scheduled meeting. This month we used two resources for our education segment. We continued with a video series on policy governance and the other was a podcast by The Unstuck Group. We are including links to those sources in the newsletter and would encourage you to take the time to listen to them as well.

We spent time with the ongoing process of evaluating our ends as mentioned above. We also spent time discussing the election process for elders which will look a little different this year. Voting will be available to covenant partners either online or via paper before May 5. Additional information will be coming regarding the new process.

Please mark your calendars for our Connect Celebration Event (both campuses worshiping together) on June 2 in Sioux Center. We look forward to celebrating the faithfulness of the Lord in the life of Centerpoint over the past year.



Financial Update

We are currently 2% ahead in giving.



A Closer Look At Managing Finances

Did you know that we have a Finance Team?

We have a group of people who are passionate about stewarding the resources that God has given us in the best way possible. TJ Speer, a board member, Jamie Dykstra, the Lead Pastor, and Stacia Van Berkel, the Director of HR/ Finance/Operations, make up the Finance Team. This team focusses on strategic planning and best practices for financial reporting for Centerpoint Church.

As part of our strategic planning efforts, each February we begin budgeting for our next Fiscal Year.  The fiscal year runs from July to June, coinciding with our ministry year. During this process, each of Centerpoint’s staff members put together a budget for their ministry area. As budgets are put together, careful decisions are made around how to best steward resources so our expenditures are in alignment with the direction that is given by the Board. Our budget is one of the tools that helps us make financial decisions throughout the year and equips Centerpoint’s staff to steward our financial resources wisely.

In addition to the Finance Team, we have an Audit Team, made up of financial professionals, who execute a yearly audit of our financial processes and offer support to the Finance Team throughout the year. 

We take the area of finances very seriously and appreciate your decision to partner with us in ministry by living generously.



And that’s a wrap.

We just wrapped up another year of preparing and serving monthly Wednesday night meals during the Centerpoint Students and Kids ministry season!

The heart of this ministry is to lighten the load on Wednesday nights and provide an opportunity for people to slow down, be cared for, and have some time for fellowship.

We are so thankful for all who joined us for meals and all who helped make it happen! As we look ahead, we’d love for you to consider leading or serving with the Wednesday Night Meals team for the 2024-2025 ministry year. For more information about what it looks like to lead or serve with this team, please contact Pastor Cy. 


I want to help!
