Brief History

At the time of partnering with INJOY Stewardship Next Community Church was only a 1 year old independent church.

In just over 1 year’s time we’ve gone from $30,000 in our accounts to over $300,000.

Our Miracles

• In just over 1 year’s time we’ve gone from $30,000 in our accounts to over $300,000.

• Last week we met with the bank and we’re moving forward with our 2 million-plus project. (The bank said they couldn’t believe we’ve done this in a year’s time.)

• Also, our church is zoned office space. This means we cannot build without rezoning. Our architect suggested asking for a variance from the zoning board. We did.

  • The vote to grant a variance was last Thursday (4/12/2018). We were granted our variance, which means we do not have to rezone.
  • After the meeting, the architect told me “I have been doing this for 20 years… And in 20 years I have never seen a variance granted!!!!” It was a miracle.

This is God’s dream, His church and I am humbled He’s invited me to be a part of the miracle He’s doing in Jackson, MI.

We’re grateful for our partnership with INJOY Stewardship. God has used their wisdom to help us share our vision in a way that did not puncture the momentum or lose our DNA.

We’re looking forward to breaking ground. Hopefully this summer.
