God opened up an opportunity for us to get into a more permanent space, with better usage, at a cheaper cost! Having this resource creates opportunity to take greater risks for the Kingdom of Jesus.
a. Financially – long term, with the money we save, we will be able to support other types of ministry both locally and globally.
b. Volunteers – removing the necessity of setup/takedown will free up approximately 29 people and 27 man-hours every Sunday! These folks will now be able to use that time to serve in different ways!
c. Children/Student – It gives us a space that feels more like "home" which creates safety for children and allows adult leaders to be more focused and creative in discipleship.
d. Community – It creates margin for community. People will be able to take their time connecting with one another before and after worship gatherings. In our transient community, it also gives NHB a greater sense of stability.
e. Training – It gives us more space and time to train leaders at every level. Having the option to organize childcare onsite removes a significant burden from our families.
f. Worship – It creates more space for focused prayer and worship times. It also allows our worship teams a venue to rehearse and connect outside of Sunday mornings
g. Outreach – It gives us more visibility, frees up resources, and provides a "missional outpost" to reach people in our community.
