BOSS is different from any other and God has a unique plan for us. Building on the solid foundation the Lord laid through Pastor Sherwood, we must now take tangible steps toward the vision God has for BOSS.
If you have ever watched a house being built, you know that it starts with a Plan—A BLUEPRINT. A blueprint transforms the designer’s vision into a plan with all the information that people need to bring the designer’s vision to life. Most of all, a blueprint helps the builders stay true to the designer’s plan.
God has provided a specific blueprint for BOSS, and He has begun to reveal the next stage of our timeline.
Please join the staff, BLT, and me in prayer as we seek God’s will and direction as we work out this vision.
Pray for God to reveal to you how He wants you to support BOSS Church and its vision with your time, talents, and treasure.
Commit to support BOSS Church financially and to serve in the church and community. We will need human and financial resources to build the blueprint.
God has spoken, and it’s time to get to work.
-Pastor Darryl Scarbrough
BLUEPRINT FOR OUR CHURCH HOME:
Our current facilities do not belong to us. Our Lease expires on 1/1/2020.
We are actively working with a team of BOSS partners to identify a property that will allow us to grow numerically, financially and in the ability to do ministry.
Within a 10 mile radius
Large enough for a worship center
Allow homeless housing, children and youth ministries, administrative offices
Community service and outreach facilities sufficient to serve us with the existing footprint for several years
A “STARTER HOME” OF OUR OWN
Our preference is to purchase land with an existing building we can retrofit –
Total cost (purchase and retrofit) of approximately $4 million.
We will need approximately $800,000 in cash plus pledges maturing over the next 36 months for the balance.
A “DREAM HOME” OF OUR OWN
Our goal is to pay off the loan at the end of 36 months to free those mortgage fees for ministry, then, as God directs, conduct a campaign at that time for OUR DREAM HOME that will be a legacy for your children and your children’s children
THE BLUEPRINT FOR MINISTRY:

THE BLUEPRINT FOR GIVING:
