WHAT'S NEW

We are celebrating one year into our Multiply campaign as we come to the end of 2016. It’s exciting to celebrate how God has provided funds beyond the pace we could have even expected. We are praising God for the progress as we look forward to construction beginning in 2017. Remember you can always get the latest financial breakdown with our Progress Tracker, updated monthly.

WHAT IS MULTIPLY?

Multiply is what we are calling the drive to build the Discipleship Center, 6,000 square feet of additional adult classroom and fellowship space.

OUR VISION

Open Door Bible Church has been a church family that teaches God’s word for life change and fosters lifelong relationships. We long to increase our impact for the gospel and see people joyfully equipped to make disciples in our communities until Christ returns.

The added space of the Discipleship Center will enable more people to experience spiritual discipleship in those rich and personal ways.

OUR NEED

Our current facilities serve our purpose of worship quite well, but we really have no adult classrooms or fellowship areas on the main level. Six new classrooms will immediately eliminate the makeshift adult classrooms that block the foyer and restrooms, and are hastily set up each Sunday in the worship center.

OUR SOLUTION

The new main level fellowship hall will host weeknight studies, celebrations, funeral meals for the community, large group activities and will surely be a catalyst for many creative ministries. The additional foyer space and coffee table area will ring with countless encouraging conversations for decades to come. And the additional paved, lighted and landscaped parking in the rear will make all our facilities more accessible.

This facility is not just for us who call this our church home now; it will enable new people to be welcomed into meaningful relationships and discussion of Bible truths every Sunday and throughout the week. Twenty or thirty years from now, there will be many new faces in our ministry, but this building will still be connecting people to God and to each other.

WHAT KIND OF SPACE ARE WE ADDING?

The Discipleship Center will be about 6,000 square feet. It includes six classrooms (4 permanent and 2 movable multipurpose) which will provide classroom space for over 200. The two multipurpose classrooms will be part of a new fellowship hall on the main level served by a new kitchen. The project will also provide an additional main entrance and small foyer, will add on to the current men’s room, and will feature a small coffee table area. The MULTIPLY campaign also includes expanding, paving and lighting the rear parking area.

WHAT'S THE TIMELINE FOR EVERYTHING?
Our philosophy is to build debt-free. However that doesn’t mean we must have all the funds to begin. The church family will be updated when we have a target date for breaking ground and getting started on the building itself.

HOW MUCH MONEY IS NEEDED?
The total project for about 6,000 square feet of new space, the restroom area renovations, plus the expanded paved rear parking lot is $850,000. We began the MULTIPLY effort with just over $100,000 in the Building Fund in October 2015. See our Progress Tracker for the latest update.
