In order for the church to be a strong independent body, we believe that it must become a self-governing, self-supporting, and self-multiplying church. For years we as a church have been praying for mature leadership, a Peruvian pastor, and a church property. As we see God moving us forward in each area, we are now focusing specifically on a purchasing a large, strategic lot which will serve the church for generations.
The property we are now looking at is in an amazing location: very visible, and extremely well-priced for the area. Many other properties nearby have sold for more than twice the price per square foot. It is located in the very heart of the city just 1.5 blocks from the main Plaza. We have been renting this property for over 9 years, so it is very well known. Many people have found our building because of the central location! It is easily accessible and not too far for any of our people. It also has all of the necessary documents and all utilities already connected.
We have some tentative goals, which will only be possible with true partnership:
- 2019 – purchase church property
- 2020 – construct a church building and classrooms – install a Peruvian pastor allowing us to launch into full-time river ministry
- 2021 – full time river ministry
The asking price for the land is $300,000.
Thank you for your consideration of this ministry need.
