Summer 2020 Update
We strive for full disclosure and transparency, so here are some answers to common questions we’ve been receiving regarding our Ministry Center on Shaw and McCall:
Our Ministry Center at 9905 E. Shaw
“What is happening with the building process?”
The lights, plumbing fixtures and flooring have all been installed. Our security cameras are up and running. In essence, the building itself is virtually complete! What is left is the installation of the fire supression tank, the pump house and the landscaping. We have just 1 permit left that we are waiting on, the pump house permit.
“When can we move in?”
Based on the construction schedule from our general contractor, KEI, it looks like sometime July/August, as long as the giving trends continue. Once we take possession, we will need about a month to move our offices in, build out the stage and make other improvements. Our Sunday services won't happen until late July or early August.
"Jesus, may the songs that fill this place give You praise..."
“Is our giving on track?”
Paul Herrick, our Campaign Team Leader, has reported very strong giving to the building project! Here are the numbers:
Campaign Goal: $550,000
Campaign Pledged: $372,282
Campaign Gifts: $297,618 (May '20)
Since April ‘19 we have received 55% of what our Campaign Goal and 82% of our Campaign Pledges.
Participate in VISION 9905 and help us reach our goal!
“Are we going to take out a 2nd loan?”
Yes. Jeff Brown, our Business Administrator, is working with Share Financial to secure a loan of $425K, which will net $405K in capital. This will make our monthly mortgage payment increase by $2,954, which will bring our total monthly mortgage from $12,477 to $15,450 starting in the spring of 2020.
"Unless the Lord builds the house they that labor do so in vain..."
“Are we still going to sell a portion of the property?”
We are considering that as a future option. Nick Maxwell has spoken to realtors and explored options of selling 10-15 acres of the southern portion of our property to generate extra capital. As of now we don't have an interested party, but will remain open to future offers.
