We encourage our members and those who regularly attend First Southern to practice Biblical stewardship by giving a portion of their finances back to God as an act of worship and obedience. Giving generously and sacrificially advances the mission God has given us here in Scottsdale and throughout the world.

We believe so wholeheartedly in advancing the gospel of Jesus Christ that we currently give around 13% of our entire budget away through the Southern Baptist Cooperative Program and to strategic ministry partners who are also working to advance the Kingdom of God.


Transferring ownership of stocks, bonds, real estate, automobiles, etc., provides ample giving opportunities. Tax codes are generous toward this form of giving. Giving the asset to the church, then allowing the church to sell eliminates potential capital gains taxes and can increase the after-tax proceeds, providing significant tax savings.  For more information on how to give in this way, contact
