Over the next 3 years, Bayside Church is doing a faith-raising campaign to set some exciting vision in MOTION.

 What is "compassion first"? We have prayerfully chosen 56 projects locally and globally to fund FIRST as a part of our Compassion First Campaign model. Putting "compassion first" means that we are committed to fully funding those 56 projects before we improve our existing campuses.
