Faith Family Ministries has been able to purchase a partially completed church building for our permanent home. We need to complete the inside which involves pulling electrical wiring, drywalling, ceiling, hanging bathroom and kitchen fixtures, installing sound equipment, wall and baseboard trim, lighting, carpet laying, tile, concreting sidewalk, landscaping, and door hanging. The building is approximately 5500 sq. ft. and is already framed in. The baptistery is already installed and the stage is already built. We are a new church plant and predominantly military families in our makeup. We will have to hire the HVAC, plumbing and electrical work due to permit restrictions (wiring can be pulled by others, but the electrician must sign off). We will also need to install insulation.
Faith Family Ministries is a one year old church plant that has a primary focus on the military. We are located adjacent to Ft. Campbell where 80,000 soldiers and families are stationed. We’ve experienced tremendous success and are currently running between 70-90 in worship. We currently rent a large space from the Oak Grove Tourism Commission, however, we are being displaced because they are going to remodel the area where we meet into offices. This means after June 30th we will not have a place to meet. Oak Grove does not have any facilities large enough to house our congregation and because of this we would like to complete this building a.s.a.p. We focus on making disciples of these soldiers and their families so they are equipped to make disciples at their next duty station. So far we’ve baptized 22 in our first 14 months. Our congregation is 60-70% military.
