TRANSFORM began in May of 2018 as a two-year, life-changing discipleship journey. God is moving us to multiply our impact by building a new facility here in Harrison and completing the construction of our partner school in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. Since we kicked off TRANSFORM, we felt called to build a common space for our community to gather to connect, play, and grow.
Of course great worship services and LifeSpring programs take place there every weekend, but the building is busy all day and all week long with a steady flow of people who are going to encounter the hope Jesus brings.
We are not calling our new facility a "church" because it's not a church. The church is a group of people living on mission for Christ not a building, address, or service. This is so easy to forget, but we must keep reminding each other that we don't "go" to church, we "are" the church both gathered in worship and scattered on mission.
We want to MAXIMIZE not minimize opportunities to draw people into the space for coffee, to play in the indoor playground, to use the meeting rooms. There, we will build relationships that will earn the chance to share about the hope we have and what we offer as a church family.
Because real transformation always starts from within, we're asking Jesus to change our hearts and lives first. Then He can bring us together to do bigger things than we could ever accomplish on our own. Come discover how God wants to TRANSFORM you, our community, and our world forever.
We are 14 months into our 24-month TRANSFORM journey and quite a bit has taken place behind the scenes recently. Not only was our final PUD (planned unit development) approved by City Council in June (which in turn gave us the much-awaited green light to submit 100% drawings for permits, another significant milestone), but we also SURPASSED THE HALFWAY POINT in our $1.2 million giving campaign.
It's happening! 8 months after launching our two-year TRANSFORM journey, we are seeing the walls go up in Kenya. Check out the latest footage from Missions of Hope in Nairobi.

It starts by asking God to show us His heart for us and our world. When we understand who Jesus is and what He has done for us, we can't stay the same. His compassion moves us to act. The good news of God's grace transforms us from the inside out.
TRANSFORM OUR COMMUNITY
The area is exploding with new growth, but that doesn't mean there isn't brokenness at all levels. Jesus is here to transform lives and families, and He is calling us to join Him. A one-million dollar ﬁnancial investment will enable us to build a new, high-impact, community-use facility on our 10-acre, Carolina Trace property. This will greatly expand our ability to reach people and transform our community.
Thank you for learning more about TRANSFORM. Links to additional resources are included below. Will you join us in praying, "God, what do you want to do in and through me to transform others?"
If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the aﬄicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday. And the Lord will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in. Isaiah 58:10-12
