Grape Road Campus Launch

November 20, 2016 | Pastor Matt Poorman

Well, we finally made it! Construction is complete and we are all moved into the Grape Road facility. We are now settling in and making it our new home. Several volunteers packed up everything from the Montessori Academy on Sunday, November 20 after the final service at the school. We strategically placed everything in 2 trailers and drove just around the block to our permanent location at 4601 Grape Road! We are so excited!

We are looking forward to all that God has in store for us at this location and ultimately in expanding His Kingdom. We are humbled by all of those who have gone before us on the north side of town and look forward to partnering our prayers and activity with theirs for the sake of making Jesus Christ famous.
We have already seen God at work as people have been eager to talk about the church and talk of the possibility of coming and checking things out. Pastor Steve Huffman and I were at the building one morning to receive a delivery and in the 30 minutes or so we were there, we interacted with 4 or 5 individuals who were interested in talking about the church and when we would be opening up. So cool!
One evening, my wife Leah and I were at the building painting, and we met a young guy named Nathanael who was coming out of Charter Fitness. As we talked to him, we found out that he had just moved to Mishawaka from Huntington for work and really didn’t know anyone and was going to be looking for a church. I invited him inside and walked him around the facility. He seemed to be excited about what we would be doing and possibly joining us! God is stirring things up and it is exciting!
Our public opening will be December 4. Next year is going to be an exhilarating year, to say the least, as the campus moves forward! I personally am pumped to see where God leads us.
Again, thanks to all those who are and have sacrificed financially to make this a reality. We couldn’t have done it without you!
