7-day-a-week ministry opportunities: Our ministries have been constrained by cost, space, and time requirements of rental facilities. Having our own building would exponentially increase opportunities for youth/children’s ministries, small groups, adult ministries, community service, and innovative new ministries.
Visibility and access: Historically, churches that open in a new permanent home experience 50% growth within the first year. Adams County is expected to be the fastest-growing county in Denver in the next 20 years. Our property is in the heart of a corridor of rapid residential, retail, and commercial growth. The property is directly adjacent to a 496-unit apartment complex, and just blocks away from the new Amazon Fulfillment Center and Simon Outlet Mall. Our location will be physically visible to hundreds of thousands of people as a place of hope.
Stewardship: Our financial investments in facilities will go into our own building rather than renting, giving us a long-term home for ministry for generations.
School home: Phase 1 construction would enable ThornCreek Christian School to more than double its current enrollment to upwards of 250 students, eliminate costly rent, and expand the reach of its high-quality, Biblical-worldview education. TCS could expand to include daycare and a more robust preschool program, expanding revenue and ministry opportunities.
Spiritual home: A central location will enhance the efficiency, unity and creativity of the staff and leadership and will give our church community a home for events, ministries, and fellowship.
