Getting Started

As the Building Team, we see ourselves ministering and serving you.  We have developed a set of objectives to help us remain focused in our service to you and to provide you with a clear understanding of what you can expect from us.

  1. Develop a plan, i.e. building designs, site plans, financing recommendations, etc. that will service the needs of the church

  2. Investigate land in the Roxbury area through realtors and other contacts.

  3. Investigate building requirements for a church including but not limited to zoning laws.

  4. Develop guidelines for fundraising and delegating the fundraising activities to a group of interested individuals while overseeing the process.

  5. Keep the elders and church body informed in a timely and appropriate manner. This should include prayer requests and encouraging consistent, constant prayer.

  6. Work with the finance team on a finance plan with continuous approval from elders.

  7. Create a timeline for the execution of plan that is matched with funding amounts needed at each point.

So far we have taken a few steps forward in this journey…
  1. We have put together a basic floor plan that represents a “wish list” of amenities for a church building.

  2. We have contacted a local engineer to help up assess the viability of constructing such a building on a least one site in Roxbury.

  3. We reached out to a local realtor to help us investigate the availability of properties in the Roxbury area.

As we continue this journey, we ask for your prayer support.  There may be “giants in the land” and we want to respond to the challenges just like Joshua and Caleb.

It is exciting to think about what the Lord has in store for the Roxbury and surrounding community. Prayer will manifest His will.
