Project Type:  URGENT NEED, Church Construction

Length of Assignment:  1 week or less


Need:  
Gospel Community Church in Owensboro has an urgent need to reroof their building.  The church was in the process of renovating their building when the weight from a recent snow caused 2 small cave-ins.  The resulting water damage flooded the building and destroyed about $10,000 worth of drop ceiling they were storing for use in the new building. 

A proposal from a construction company lists the scope of the work as:

·       Removal of existing metal roof

·       Replace bad plywood decking with new

·       Install two layers of 1.5 poly iso insulation board

·       Install a new white .060 mil TPO roof system with all related flashing

The estimated cost of the job is $55,975 and the church does not have funds for this project. 

Ministry Description:  
Gospel Community Church is a Kentucky Baptist Convention church plant to reach the Deaf (4th largest unreached people group on the planet).  GCC is one of only 39 churches in the United States planted to reach over 7.5 million unreached Deaf people.  Although a large majority of the congregation is Deaf, blind, otherwise disabled, and the bulk of the congregation live below the poverty line, the church is growing.  By the grace and providence of God, GCC was able to purchase its own building in 2017.  That is, to their knowledge, the first Deaf church of its kind to have its own self standing facility.

This past year they stepped out in faith and began demo and first phase of renovation.  Week after week, teams of volunteers torn down walls, pulled out insulation, cut pipe, and framed up holes.  They pursued a small manageable loan to finish up the needed build out and faithfully continued to work.  This past week the snow, and the weight of the melting snow on the roof, caused 2 small cave-ins.  The resulting water damage flooded the building and destroyed about $10,000 worth of drop ceiling they were storing for use in the new building.  All of the donated contractors agree that getting the building securely water-tight and under-roof has to happen before the building work can restart.  

Size of Teams Needed:  Professional roofing teams are probably going to be needed for this project.

Housing & Food Preparation:  Call for Information

Materials for Project:  Teams will need to provide the materials.  Estimated cost of the job is $55,975.  Any help would be appreciated.
