The Advance the Kingdom (ATK) offering is a personal commitment you make to God to give a certain amount of money over a specified period of time for the purpose of Global Rescue. The commitment is made after you have sought God’s will for the amount He wants you to give, either individually or as a family. The ATK includes a plan on how funds will be distributed, as well as the offering itself. It is used in its entirety toward the fulfillment of the plan outlined in the ROC.
