The world has never been more in need of Bible-grounded, gospel-sharing, grace-filled local churches.
That’s why, in the summer of 2011, we started planting Grace Hills Church in Northwest Arkansas, one of the nation’s fastest-growing communities. We’ve grown from a handful of people to about 250 who gather each week in a movie theater, baptizing over 100 people so far in the process. Abby, a 21-year-old, was baptized recently and wrote this:
I was blessed to be able to be baptized today as I prayed and fully trusted in Jesus at our recent Church at the Lake service. I am amazed by all of the people God has placed in my life from Grace Hills Church. Thank you Lord for Grace Hills and for Your love, grace, salvation, and truth!
We’ve sent families to plant churches on the other side of the world in Papua New Guinea, as well as a half hour away in Siloam Springs. And we’ve partnered with missionaries and church planters in Thailand, in Nixa, Missouri, and in Pascoe, Washington. And we’re just getting started! We WILL plant more and more churches for the glory of God!
Every building we’ve looked at would cost at least $15,000 per month and require as much as $250,000 of finishing work just to move in. Our new location at 2323 West Chestnut Street in Rogers, which we’ll move into in January, is only going to cost less than $10,000 per month and we believe we can move in with as little as $50,000 in renovation, signage, and promotional materials. That’s just enough for us to create a clean, safe, well-equipped kids’ ministry area and get our main room ready for our first worship service.
Would you pray for us? Pray that God would grow us, not just numerically, but multi-dimensionally – larger through evangelism, broader through ministry, deeper through discipleship, stronger through worship, and closer through fellowship. Pray for the hearts of Northwest Arkansans to be open to the gospel and to experience the love and grace of God through us.
And (I’m writing this to pastors and church leaders), would you ask God to lead you about whether you or your church should invest in this opportunity? We’re asking for a one-time gift of whatever amount you feel led to give. Some individuals and churches have contributed in the tens of thousands of dollars while others have given ten dollars, and the members of Grace Hills have contributed over $37,000 toward the move! Every penny counts!
- $7 will buy a paintbrush
- $75 will purchase a rocking chair for our nurseries.
- $400 will purchase a television for our kids room
- $1,250 will purchase all the wood needed for our staging area.
- $5,000 will more than cover the cost of the electrical wiring we need to complete.
If God leads you to give, you can do so in one of two ways:
- Mail a check payable to Grace Hills Church with “Future Fund” on the memo line to
Grace Hills Church
3511 SE “J” St, Ste 9, Box #330
Bentonville, AR 72712
- Give an offering online at www.gracehillschurch.com/give and select “Future Fund”.
We believe God is doing a great work here and we want to invite you to be part of it by praying and possibly by investing financially this one time. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
