    to Grow the Family of God

Why Build?

TO EVANGELIZE AND DISCIPLE OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY.

Through the Academy and Preschool, we teach children the Gospel, we minister to teachers and staff, and we gain an opportunity to connect with parents and family members. We especially desire to connect with un-churched families, that they might come to know God by hearing the gospel through their children, staff, and our church outreach.

TO SUPPORT THE GROWTH.

The Academy and Preschool have both experienced significant growth, filling almost all of the available church space plus the aging modular units. The blessing of this growth requires more room for both schools as well as space to support expanding church ministries.

Fundraising

STEPPING OUT IN FAITH TO BUILD

Back in June 2018, the Windsor Baptist Church congregation raised $500,000 towards the funds for this building project. We hit our initial goal of this campaign and now it is time to step out in faith and seek the rest of the $2.5 million to complete Phase 1 of our building project.

We know that raising $2.5 million is no easy task, however, we believe that God is going before us and opening the doors to build. He will provide the funds by moving in the hearts of generous donors. We wait in anticipation at the work God will do!

HOW CAN I GIVE?

There are several ways to give towards the building program.
