I had the privilege recently to tour the new facilities we just completed for Athens Church. Launching new facilities into mission is one of our most exciting times. That’s because we know that the new facilities will be a physical bridge to ministry opportunities that were not possible before. We painstakingly, diligently worked with the church to develop the facilities that will best serve their ministry. It’s far more than just providing affordable space. It’s about understanding the Code, Context and Calling of the church before Creating the Right Ministry Space. In this case, we used what has affectionately become known as the “big box build-out”. The church purchased over 100,000 sq. ft. of a strip center. We worked with them to develop nearly 1/2 of that space for use now and to provide for subsequent uses in the remaining area. See more here.
It was an honor to serve Pastor Sean Seay (@seanseay) and the ministry God planted in Athens, GA several years ago. Athens Church is a North Point Ministries strategic partner, and maintains a commitment to be a church that unchurched people can attend – relevance without compromising the Gospel. From the weekend services and Starting Point, to Waumba Land, UpStreet, Xtreme, & InsideOut, to small groups, you will find intentionality with Jesus at the heart of what they do. Check out “Our Dream” for an example of how one family, far from God, came to know how much God loves them – through the love they were shown by Athens Church.
