Church Plant Goals

The objective in 2013 will be to position the church plant (building and grounds) to honor The Lord and not limit the ministry with debt or inadequate space to minister.

The three stage plan for the goal is: Retire, Remodel, Rise.

  1. Retire all the church building mortgage debt in a timely manner. Through sacrificial contributions the church family will endeavor to pay off the current debt. The strategy will be to retire the debt in four to seven years, thereby saving interest and preparing for future needed development.
  2. Remodel the church facility: renovate restrooms, install attic storage access, install additional  projector in auditorium, lighting improvements for interior/exterior and signage, parking/driveway improvement, extend electrical line to  feed buses, paint the interior.
  3. Rise up and build the needed facility to minister to the church and community. The church would develop plans with the congregation input to satisfy present and future projected grow. Facility plans could include a family center consisting of a full size gym, fully equipped kitchen, classrooms and office space.
