We have the awesome opportunity to plant a new church in Madison, AL. We need your help! We are asking you to commit to join us financially to cover the costs of launching.
Back in October of 2015, during some time of prayer, I began to feel like God had spoken to me and told me that we were going to plant a church in the future. I felt it so strongly that I wrote it in my Bible that day.
At that moment, we had no idea where that would be, when it would be, or how it would come to pass. But over time we both knew that it was something God was going to orchestrate.
As time went by, we began forming relationships with people that began to help us with the details of what God had put in our hearts, and it became clear that Madison, Alabama was where we wanted to plant.
Here are a few statistics about Madison...
It is the fastest growing city in the state of Alabama. The population of the people in the city limits has more than doubled in the past 10 years. It is part of the Huntsville/Metropolitan area, which is the 2nd largest Metropolitan area in the state. Inside of the city limits, there are around 50,000 people.
One thing that stuck out to us the most, as we researched different areas, was that Madison is considered 85% unchurched. There is a great need for more life-giving churches in the area. The median age of a resident there is 37 years old, which also told us there are a lot of young families (all you have to do is drive around the area to see that for yourself). We know that God is going to use New Life Chapel to serve this community! We want to see people that don't know the hope of Jesus, come to know him and let him bring hope and purpose to their lives. We want to offer a place that people can feel part of a community, and we want to have authentic, life-giving worship through our services, small groups, and also through serving this wonderful community.
So here we are! Uprooting our family of 5 out of Douglas, Georgia, and moving. We are moving this summer, and our official launch service will be January 7, 2018. We will begin meeting and building our launch team in August. Please check out our website for more information:
We would be honored for you to partner with us financially. We are essentially going on the mission field! We have to raise funds for salaries for the first year, and we will more than likely be a portable church, setting up and tearing down every week, so the costs are extensive. The money we are raising will go towards the first year's rent of a facility (which will more than likely be a school, or a theatre), a trailer for transporting our equipment, salary for the first year, computers for the church, sound equipment, lighting equipment, piping drape, chairs, portable stage, musical instruments (drums, guitar, keyboard), projector screens, projectors, kid's church equipment (kids check in equipment, nursery supplies, kids sound system, projector and screen), advertising (direct mailer, tv, Facebook ads, google ads), and much more. Our launch day budget is over $100,000, so we need your help.
Please consider partnering with us financially, and helping us fulfill the great commission, which is to reach the lost and help change lives! We know that most of you cannot go with us, but we believe that you will be part of the harvest of souls that will be turned from darkness to light by your financial gift. What an awesome opportunity! We love you all, and thank you for helping advance the kingdom!
