ROOTED FOR RENEWAL
Hope Chapel launched in the fall of 2008 in one of the most un-churched areas of Greensboro to be a Gospel-centered community for the flourishing of Greensboro.
Our desire was– and always has been– that we would join God in the spiritual, social and cultural renewal of the city that we love.
We long to see God’s kingdom expanded as people are connected to God and one another, as we serve the city and contribute to its beauty, and as we plant churches in the Triad area.
We planted with 25 members at Lindley Elementary School and within 3 short years we outgrew the school and moved to our current location in 2011, an abandoned diaper warehouse on Spring Garden St.
The warehouse has served us well these past 7 years, but we are outgrowing the space and therefore do not believe it would be wise to sign a 3 year renewal in July of 2019.
We are committed to our vision and staying in our target ministry area, so we have explored different options to purchase or lease. The one property that seems to best fit our vision and needs is the former Daystar building at 908 Westover Terrace.
Why this facility?
Locates us in a high traffic area with great visibility, directly across from Grimsley, Guilford County’s oldest high school, and less than a mile from UNCG, Greensboro College and surrounding neighborhoods.
Provides 28k SF and 2 acres, seating for 400+, and wonderful rooms for children, youth, and offices. In short, enough space to continue to carry out our vision of spiritual, social and cultural renewal in Greensboro.
Children & Youth
Enables growing space for our youth and children’s ministries.
Grimsley High School
Affords us the opportunity to partner with Grimsley HS, including faculty, students and parents, and Young Life.
Allows us to host cultural events, movie forums, UNCG music events and small venue concerts.
Proximity to Campus
Grants us the opportunity to further our connection with UNCG by being a home to students and partnering with parachurch ministries on campus.
Gives us space to grow to 400-500 members and then send out 25-50 people to plant a new church in the greater Greensboro area.
Daystar originally listed the property for $1.95m and lowered the price to $1.495m in July.
A local developer has approached Daystar with a serious offer and if they purchased it they would most likely change its use. So in an effort to preserve this property that has been a beacon of gospel light since Westover Church built it in 1950, Daystar graciously offered to sell it to us for 1.2 million. After prayerful consideration our session voted unanimously to go under contract and move forward.
The Lord has provided necessary financing and we are seeking to raise $500,000 in seed monies by December 15th. Some of these funds will be used toward a down payment when we close on the 15th and some will be used for immediately upfitting the HVAC systems, roof and cosmetic changes to the sanctuary.
In addition to raising the seed monies, we would like to raise an additional $900,000 over a 3 year capital campaign to pay off the note and be debt free.
We understand that this is a God-sized task and we will need to raise funds from inside and outside of our local church body.
We would like to invite you to prayerfully consider joining our support team. Would you please consider giving above and beyond your tithe to our $500k seed monies by Dec. 15th 2018 and/or to our $900k 3-year capital campaign beginning January 2019 through December 2021?
