MAKING ROOM

We believe that by living in obedience to Christ’s command to make disciples, God will work in the lives of those in our Oikos. It is vital that our facilities are able to welcome others into our midst, and ultimately into the family of God. The plans to repurpose and expand our building have been created from a place of expectant preparation. Over the next six months, LEFC will be on a journey to pave the way for ministry that will impact lives for all of eternity. This journey begins with prayer. Join us in humbly aligning ourselves with God’s heart and seeking His guidance. We have been given a bold vision to Create Space and Expect Harvest. And so we step out in faith.

"I believe Creating Space / Expecting Harvest is a generational project, an act of faith that will pave the way for a generation of ministry and a new generation of leaders … just like those past and long-time LEFCers laid a foundation of ministry for us, acting in faith 20 years ago when they moved across the street from the Mill. God has already been answering many prayers for direction, wisdom, and discernment about the project, and we continue to pray that He will lead us in the timing and provision of resources."

frequently asked questions

Q: How is the cost so much less than the original plan?
A: Thanks to some wise counsel, we involved a builder earlier in the process to help finalize the plans. Their expertise was invaluable in helping to find “efficiencies” that maximized our existing facility and improved functionality for what will be built. Additionally, we are saving money by completing the project sooner (and in only one phase) thereby avoiding the cost of inflation.

Q: How did we go from three building phases to one?
A: When building in phases, you have to be able to continue the operation of the ministry with only a portion of the project complete. By building all at once, we were able to reduce the total amount of square footage we needed to build, and accomplish the ministry goals for less money. The main purpose for the original three-phase plan was to spread out the financial weight of the overall cost.

Q: What is the timeframe for Funding the Vision?
A: You will have the opportunity to participate in funding the vision, beginning fall of 2017 through the end of 2020.

Q: Will this project involve longterm debt?
A: LEFC is currently debt free at the end of Phase 1 of Project Open Invitation. While paying cash is ideal, the overall size and scope of this project is likely beyond our ability to pay for it in a three year period. As such, we are working with lending institutions to be sure that we have funding in place to cover the difference between our cash & pledges and the project cost.

Q: When do you hope to break ground?
A: Lord willing, we project groundbreaking to be spring of 2018. In order to begin construction on schedule, we will need to have enough in pledges and cash on hand to be sure we can finish what we started.
