The Gym project is completed and already serving the community in many ways, but we still need your help! If you'd like to donate please go to our giving page and select the "Master Plan Building Fund" from the drop down box. Please take a few moments to look through this gallery of photos.
God has been so faithful every step of this journey, as we "Build a Haven for the Community".
As of June 2023, we have received $5.4 million of the total projected cost of the gymnasium and plaza. We have less than $2 million left to fully fund!

What is the “Master Plan”? The Master Plan is a 5-year vision God has laid on our hearts to Build a Haven for the Community of Glendale, Arizona, and beyond. It is our prayer that through our church, people will come to know and grow in Jesus through a welcoming environment, a space for our young people, incorporation of athletics, and consistent outreach.
Where can I read more about the Master Plan? By partnering with Debartolo Architects, we have been able to develop the Master Plan, a project document summarizing our vision. You can learn more about how we are building a haven for the community by reading our project summary linked below.
What is the first phase of the master plan? Our goal for phase 1 of the master plan includes two elements to be built simultaneously:
A plaza to make a more welcoming entry into our sanctuary. Our hope is that this plaza will provide a place for people to congregate before and after our church services for fellowship, as well as enjoy a shaded space on the way to other campus activities during the week.
A gymnasium that we hope to use as a sports ministry opportunity for allowing unchurched people a non-threatening place to come and discover who we are, and more importantly, who Jesus is! The gymnasium will also allow the campus space for non-athletic events and activities.
What is the timing, and what are the next steps? We have signed a contract with Robert E. Porter Construction as the General Contractor for our site expansion. The facilities will be ready to use by April/May 2023!
Does part of my tithe go to the church building fund? No, we are taking up a separate offering for the church building fund. We believe that God has led us to step out in faith and trust that He will provide for what He has called us to do, above and beyond our regular tithes and offerings.
