Case Study Going From Portable to Permanent after 10 Temporary Facilities


Joel Halpin

Brief History

Connection Point Church was launched on Feb. 14, 2010 with a renewed vision to create a church that each member truly enjoyed.

Over the next ten years, Connection Point met in many different locations including multiple hotels, store fronts, parks, and a school. 

God has revealed Himself in many ways throughout our journey as a church. From life change and baptisms to mission trips and meeting locations, He has shown His power.  But one thing has stood out for us over the first ten years of our existence. His church is His people (not a building), and He sure does love His people!

Has met in 10 different (temporary) facilities over the past 10 years

The Plan

Connection Point Church had a goal to raise $300,000 over 3 years to fully fund the vision God placed on Pastor Joel for them to be “Rooted!” in their community!


  • 2016 – Originally Connected with INJOY Stewardship Solutions
  • 2017 – Launched an in-house campaign
  • 2020 – Lost meeting facility due to COVID shutdown and forced to relocate
  • 2021 – Reconnected with INJOY Stewardship Solutions
  • 2022 – Made it to their Commitment event – 5 Years after first connecting!

Our Miracles & Results

Launched their Capital Campaign with a small team in faith that the Lord was pressing them to move forward; named their campaign “Rooted!” with the belief the Lord wanted them to plant deeply in their community

6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7 

In February 2022 three acres of prime land at the entrance of one of the prominent subdivisions in their area had become available – for less than half of the market value!”

From a goal of $300,000 Connection Point Church was able to see commitments of $452,000 for them to become Rooted! in their community!
