South Campus Update

The final financing for South Campus is now in place.

South Campus loan:

  • A final draw was made on the construction loan on 3/26
  • The loan then converted to an amortizing loan with a 4.35% interest rate and monthly payments of $38K

South Campus was funded by the following sources:

  • Fill These Cities: 25 x ’25 Giving: $2.16M
  • Designated Gifts: $1.87M
  • New Debt: $6.92M
  • Total South Campus Cost: $10.97


  • The 25 month acceleration phase of “Fill These Cities: 25 x’25” ended on 12/31/2018 and so far giving has returned to levels experienced before the initiative.
  • Expenses are being managed in line with giving, but this means we are not able to do all of the things we want to as a Church that continued generosity would enable us to do. This is reflected in the 2019 “Fill These Cities: 25 x ’25” budget being paired back in significant ways to be more in line with recent giving.


  • Thanksgiving to God for providing a South Campus.
  • Pray that we would continue to be a congregation of cheerful givers and that God would use our generous gifts to accomplish his purposes.
