Why Project Hope?

Project Hope is a 2-year stewardship campaign to expand the facilities of the church at both campuses to connect our community to the hope we have in Christ. Our church family has grown rapidly as it has prayed, partnered, and participated with God at Hope Point. The heart of God is to reach more people with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. To accommodate the current and future growth in the church, the time is now for Project Hope. Project Hope will raise $1 Million over the next two years as we build, develop and renovate to connect the community to Christ.

God Story

God moves in big ways when we step out in faith to follow Him. He gives seed to the sower and enables us to do all that He has put into our hearts.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

FAQ

We have builder estimates for the work we plan at both campuses for $2.7 Million. The work will be done in phases, and we will pay as we go.

We believe God will enable His people to raise $1 Million for Project Hope! We have set this amount based on expert assistance from a church capital campaign consultant who has helped hundreds of churches across the country raise money for major projects.

The banks we have spoken to are eager to make the entire amount available, but we expect to borrow $1.7 Million based on our Project Hope goal of raising $1 Million.

We believe that God can do anything. If He chooses to move miraculously and provide the entire $2.7 Million for Project Hope, we will receive it gladly! We have faith for that. However, we also know that God asks us to use wisdom so we have engaged a consultant who evaluated the church financially and set a reasonable goal of $1 Million based on our church size and campaign timeline of two years.

We never want to sacrifice “ministry for a mortgage”; we believe this goal will help us avoid adjusting ministry to pay a mortgage payment. Ideally, the closer we get to raising the entire amount, the better. However, we believe the payments on this size of loan, borrowed as we need it, will be moderate and well within our ability to repay without diminishing our ministry.

You can give now by denoting Project Hope on a check or by selecting Project Hope as the giving type on our PushPay app (you can reach this via our Hope Point Church app or our website).

We will ask the congregation to bring gifts and commitment cards for their planned giving on May 5th.

We plan to start initial projects this summer. The Westchester project may start even sooner to relieve the space challenges in our children’s classrooms and sanctuary.

The Westchester renovation to create a fourth classroom and re-orient the sanctuary will be completed first.

At Central Campus, we have several projects planned for the summer of 2019, including fixing the sidewalks, lighting the driveway, demolishing some empty buildings, repaving the parking lots, and renovating the foyer, bathrooms, and hallways.

Early in 2020, we look forward to breaking ground on the Central Campus addition.

Yes! We will plan the project to enable us to have Sunday services every week.

There may be times when certain doors are unavailable or other small inconveniences, but we plan to fully use the space while we are enlarging it to make room for others in the community that God is bringing!
