Legacy & Gift Planning

"But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this?  Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand."
- 1 Chronicles 29:14

Why Consider Legacy or Planned Giving?

Many people love to include Langham in their will or trust because a legacy or planned gift is…

  • A Joyful Act of Worship – All we have comes from the Lord, and as we plan to give generously to Christ and his mission we honor him with our resources.
  • A Powerful Way to Strengthen the Church Around the World – For many, a gift in your will or trust or a beneficiary designation will be the largest financial gift you are ever able to make.
  • A Compassionate Way to Care for Your Family and Loved Ones – Making plans allows you to consider what is best for your family and loved ones, and also provide an example of what you love and value for future generations.
  • A Smart Way to Steward Your Resources – Certain gift options have tax benefits that allow you to give more to your family and to kingdom work.
