The Grace Brethren Investment Foundation, Winona Lake, Indiana, has recently approved the financing necessary to fund a major new building project for the Western Reserve Grace Brethren Church (Pastor Jason Haymaker and team), 1034 and 1066 East Aurora Road, Macedonia, OH. 44056
The project will have several key aspects to it. The first will be the construction of an addition to the current worship facility located on 10 acres of land. It will include a 6,000 sq. ft. multi-space to be used as a worship center, seating around 550 people per service, and also as a gym. This addition will have a basement underneath that will be around 6,000 sq. ft. for a children’s ministry.
The second aspect will be to completely update the exterior of the current building and increase the level of available parking. The third aspect is to renovate the inside of the current building so that each space is used wisely (mostly for student ministries). The church plans to have a state of the art youth facility, children’s facility, and café. The last aspect will be to excavate the current ministry center so that the basement area can be utilized for office space, which is currently located in an adjacent house across the parking lot.
“In my opinion, this congregation is on the precipice of major additional growth since substantial dollars will be allocated to developing children’s and youth ministries. GBIF is excited to see what God will do in and through Western Reserve for His glory,” said Ken Seyfert, Executive Director of Operations for GBIF.
