Campus Stewardship


The ideal situation would be to stop everyhing for a few months and build this entire plan. If the Lord provides all the finances needed at once, then that will be the obvious option.

Likely we'll need to build a phase at a time. Working extensively in prayer and with our architect, we've presented a phasing plan designed to create the best workflow and least interruption of church life as we move forward.

Phasing starts with maximizing the use of existing facilities, which was a major point that came to our attention a result of a 24-hour prayer thrust we dedicated to this project in September 2003. It continues with a new auditorium and worship center, a new Christian Education facility, and ends with a high-energy activity space, such as what would serve AWANA ministry or other action-packed gatherings.

The following explains the phasing plan:

  • Fellowship/Worship Phase - This will result in the current chapel being converted to a fellowship and worship space, with a full kitchen alongside. When the new worship space is finished, this building will become the fellowship hall.
  • (Here's a look at the fellowship schematic. which is part of the Fellowship/Worship Phase.)

    The good news is that the fellowship part of the phase came in at around $283,000, considerably less than the estimated amount of over $420,000.

    This phase is completed!

  • Worship Space Phase: Narthex, Offices, Worship Space - a new chapel or auditorium to be buill on the south end of the campus, seating about 380 - 400 people.
  • Education Wing Phase: New classrooms and youth ministry section, with plenty of storage.
  • The phasing was adjusted as a result of congregational input and delliberation and prayer by the elders. We hope to soon have updated drawings to show you.

  • Here's the square footage and per square foot cost estimate of tfe entire development.
