Dear Beloved

This is an update on the construction progress of our Church in Nashville, TN.

As we continue our progress ,we thank God we are almost done with Architectural design and will soon be ready to start talking to contractors and the bank to get more solid numbers and estimations. In the mean time we are still praying that we will be able to complete the full amount of the steel building before we talk to the bank since the price of the building will need to be paid in cash before we get the loan. 

The total cost is $250,000 (We reached $210,000)

We have started a campaign to raise this part of the project and we first ask for your prayers that God may continue His work.

As move on, we are in need of your prayers and support to continue our progress to start construction this summer by the grace of God! 


We're still in need to reach our monthly pledge goal as well as raise the money for the steel building before the end of June


Both the bank and the dioceses will require us to submit proof of sufficient monthly income to pay for the mortgage. This can be accomplished by pledging to monthly donations from each family.


The last estimate we received for phase one is $3.5 million which translates to a monthly commitment of about $25,000 (only for the loan) in addition to other church expenses which varies but could be up to $10,000 to 15,000

If we are able to raise more funds to reduce the total amount of the loan would be great but we also will need the monthly commitment 


We’re reaching out to ask you to first pray that God may guide us and complete the work that was started and also if you would like to partake of the blessing of a monthly pledge to the church so we can show that we have sufficient monthly income.


I'd like thank all of you who have already pledge to support us. We have reached % of our goal. Please keep us in your prayers.


If you'd like to continue to support us, please either fill this form online (Click HERE)  OR print it (Click HERE to print the  form) and you can either:


Also, we continue to collect donations for the down payment please Click HERE if you'd like to make a one time donation OR an online pledge


If we’re not able to accomplish both these goals. Unfortunately we will have to stop all work until sufficient funds and monthly income are available.

Please pray that God may glorify His Holy Name in His church. 


In Christ
