Building Our Future

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”- Matt 28:19-20

Our mission, our mandate, is and has always been to GO into all the world, and to establish local churches for the advancement of this mission.

We are so pleased to announce that we are under contract to purchase a building in the Victorian Village neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio! Since the start of 614 Church Nov 2014, meeting with just four adults and four kids in a home in Columbus, the last five years has been an incredible journey of growth, baptisms, miracles, worship, life groups, and deep authentic community. We have been praying and looking for two years for a place that is more permanent than renting weekly in a school, and by God’s provision, this building has become available to 614 Church.

The exciting thing is that we are able to stand on the shoulders of others who have sowed into this community. The Lutherans who built this building in 1950, and most recently the Shining Light Bible Mission Church who have a strong legacy of being spirit led and mission hearted, we are excited to pick up from this legacy and establish a Bible focussed, Spirit led community from which to reach the city and neighborhoods.

Take A Look

Come and See

We invite you to come and look for yourself. We have scheduled two “open house” times for you to spend time walking through the building, imagining yourself and your neighbors joining in to worship God there. We encourage you to take some time to walk around the neighborhood as well, to pray and seek His heart for your part in this adventure.

Getting Involved

We have engaged a bank to finance the project, and will likely have to put 30% of the cost of the building and renovations down. The overall cost of the project includes the building ($530,000) plus renovations and improvements (estimated at $300,000), plus modernization (estimated at $100,000). Naturally we are trusting God for as much of these finances up front, to avoid putting the church in a debt position. The quicker we pay this off, the quicker we will be able to save again for another church plant and enables us to continue us in our very generous posture that 614 has always been able to be in.

Phase 1: Exterior – Roof & Walls

 

Phase 2: Basement Remodel, Landscaping, & Signage

 

Phase 3: Balcony Extension, & Stage Buildout

 

Phase 4: Audiovisual Upgrades & Auditorium Modernization

Starting early September, once we close on the building, we will have plenty of opportunities to get involved with things like demolition, yard work, painting, cleaning, and decorating, and we can’t wait to join with you as build this space together.

Pledge / Repeating Gifts

 

We are praying for God to do more than we can ask or imagine with this building in our city and in our community. If you would like to give monthly or pledge to give over and above what’s normal, click to set up a repeating gift!

One Time Gift

 

A monthly gift over and above your normal giving to 614 for the duration of the project July 2020 through Jan 2021. No amount is too small, for example $35 will cover one chair – what about $70 to purchase a chair for you and a friend?

2 Corinthians 9:17 You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”
