The Foundation


The loftier the building, the deeper must the foundation be laid. – Thomas Kempi

Roughly four years ago, I was ready to abandon the life I greatly loved in Nashville, TN to pursue God-given dreams in Clarksville, TN. You see a man received $2 million dollars in cash to purchase a Church. The Church would be debt free from the start. It was too big of a miracle to not be a part of. 8 short months later, the Church crumbled right along with my dreams of having a women’s ministry and making a difference in the lives of others.

Three long years later, I found myself in a new Church. This time I was not lured by the miracle of a big fat check, it was the love of Jesus, pure and simple. The Church is old and in need of repairs. The windows in my Sunday school class are pieced together by a poster board looking substance. The water pressure in the kitchen fades if someone flushes the toilet in the nearby bathroom.  Sure, the place has had some cosmetic touches, but we have outgrown the space and we need to make some major improvements.

This time no one is giving us $2 million dollars up front, we have to raise $30K ourselves. Our Church has launched an aggressive campaign 30 by 30 – $30K by the 30th of September.

I don’t know if we will meet our goal or not, but I do know that this Church will last. I know this because I know how the foundation is being laid – by our own blood, sweat, and tears.

If you’d like, you can get a glimpse as to where we are going. And who knows, maybe we will see you there.
