Beyond: A Spiritual JourneyChurch of the King

Building Project

St. Charles Campus

Impacting A City With The Gospel

The Goal:
To open up a new church campus in the heart of New Orleans by the end of 2019.

The Project:
In 2006, God opened a door in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina for Church of the King to invest in the rebuilding of New Orleans. We purchased the iconic Jerusalem Temple, located at 1137 St. Charles Avenue, with the dream of one day starting a campus in that location. Since then, we have conducted regular outreaches from the building to serve the needs of the local community.

The Need:
$17.5 million

St. Charles Campus

The Rebirth Of An Iconic Building

A Prime Location
The iconic Jerusalem temple is located in the heart of New Orleans, just a few blocks from the French Quarter, Central Business District, Uptown and more. The building itself is well-known and loved by long-time residents of the city and many are excited to see it restored to its former grandeur.

A New Worship Space
The 1,200 seat state-of-the-art Worship Center will have top of the line technology. The new campus has approximately 54,000 total building square footage.

An Excellent, Welcoming Space For Our Children & Community
We will have ample space for the next generation including in-class restrooms, added security, and age-appropriate teaching spaces. The spacious community lobby will provide warm and comfortable gathering spaces for friends and family. A world-class cafe will be available for our members, as well as the thriving community of college students and young adults. We have secured access to ample parking.

Building Project

West Esplanade Campus

Our New Church Home

The Goal:
To establish an additional campus in a permanent location in Kenner.

The Project:
In 2011, Church of the King launched the South Shore Campus with about one hundred people. Since then, the campus has multiplied, with nearly 1,000 in regular weekly attendance. We are well beyond our capacity in our current facilities. This hinders us in our mission to Reach People and Build Lives.

God has opened the door for us to purchase and renovate the former movie theater at the Esplanade Mall in Kenner. We are moving from renters to owners. This new church home allows us to provide impactful ministry to our community and beyond.

The Need:
$3.0 million

West Esplanade Campus

Our New Home Provides

A Prime Location
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create an attractive and convenient campus on West Esplanade in Kenner. Our new church home is centrally located and easily accessible from Interstate 10.

A New Worship Space
The 40,000 square foot campus features an 900-seat state-of-the-art Worship Center, plus an additional 300-seat Overflow Auditorium.

An Excellent, Welcoming Space For Our Children & Community
Secure classrooms provide fun and functional environments for the next generation to be equipped. The spacious lobby offers warm and comfortable gathering spaces. Nine acres of land allow for more than enough parking and future campus expansion.

Building Project

Little Creek Campus

Expanding Little Creek Campus

The Goal:
To purchase a facility for our new community outreach center and to improve various areas of our church campus by the end of 2020.

The Project:
Completing the main building at Little Creek in 2013 was a monumental financial effort. Now that we’ve settled into our new home, we are ready to continue the development of our campus master plan. The project at Little Creek Campus consists of three different initiatives:

1. Purchase the adjacent ChillCo property to serve as a new community outreach center as well as temporary office space for church staff.

2. Construct a multi-purpose sports complex with a baseball diamond, soccer field, volleyball courts, pavilion, and children’s playground.

3. Undertake additional improvements to our campus property, including parking, landscaping, and drainage.

Our Total Need:
$4.0 million

ChillCo
$1.5 Million

Sports Complex
$1.4 Million

Campus Development
$1.1 Million

Little Creek Campus

These Projects Allow Us To:

Expand Our Reach And Capacity
Purchasing the adjoining ChillCo property enables us to construct a world-class outreach center. This facility also provides temporary office space as the church staff continues to grow.

Serve The Next Generation
The brand-new sports complex provides additional space for our church community to enjoy year-round activities. It also facilitates physical education classes for Lead College.

Beautify Our Property
Completing key improvements to the property enhances the welcoming environment for our guests while also ensuring that our facilities can be maintained properly for years to come.

Building Project

Gulf Coast Campus

Preparing For The Future

The Goal:
To raise funds for the future expansion of our campus facility.

The Project:
Over the past decade, Church of the King’s Gulf Coast Campus has steadily grown and now has over five hundred in average weekend service attendance. While we are incredibly blessed with our current facilities, we recognize that we must expand in anticipation of future growth.

Our current rate of growth means that we will exceed capacity at the Gulf Coast Campus in three years. We need to prepare now to increase the seating in our sanctuary from 300 to 550, while also improving our commons area and children’s classroom spaces. Our plan is to conduct these renovations in 2020.

The Need:
$1.0 million

Making Room For Tomorrow

Anticipating Future Growth
Joining together in faith now positions us to grow more effectively in the future. By setting aside the funds for future expansion now, we can carefully plan for our campus expansion.

Improved Space For Our Congregation
Our renovated space will include additional seating for worship services, improved classroom space for our children and youth, as well as an expanded commons area for meeting spaces and hospitality.

The Beyond campaign is a 26-month journey designed to impact a region for Christ. We are taking a step of faith as a church family that will not just affect us, but will lead to many others finding Christ for the very first time. As you spend time in the communities of the Gulf Coast Region, the need for the Gospel is very evident. God is calling us to act now so that our family, friends, colleagues and neighbors can have an encounter with the saving power of Jesus.

We recognize this is a God-sized task far beyond the ability of any one person. Reaching our need of $25.5 million will take sacrifices from all of us. What you are holding in your hand is a challenge to be prayerfully and financially involved in the vision of the Beyond campaign.

You have the opportunity to make a pledge commitment, over and above your regular tithes. Commitment cards are available to help you do so. To help you calculate your pledge amount, you can use the worksheet on the previous page.

You can give towards your pledge commitment at any time by using Beyond envelopes or by giving online at churchoftheking.com/giving. Pray and ask God how you can make a financial investment in the Beyond campaign.

As you begin to pray about how much God might want you to give, we encourage you to embrace this as a spiritual journey with God. The question we need to ask ourselves is not “how much do I think I can give?” but rather “how much does God want me to give?”

To help you in this process, we have put together a five week devotional series that corresponds with the Beyond message series that will be preached at all of our campuses in October & November. We encourage you to spend time each day reading God’s Word and in prayer. We believe that God is going to bless you above and beyond your wildest expectations even as you step out in faith with us into the next chapter of our history as a church.

Commit

We are encouraging everyone in our church family to join us in making a commitment to the Beyond vision. To express your commitment, you can fill out a Commitment Card that details how much you feel led to give above and beyond your tithes towards the Beyond campaign.

To fill out a Commitment Card, you can get one at Information Central at all of our campuses on the weekend, or you can fill out your commitment online.

Daily Devotional

How To S.O.A.P.

You’ll need three items (Bible, Pen & this book) to S.O.A.P. each day!

S – Scripture

Open your Bible to your reading for the day. Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write it in your journal.

O – Observation

What do you think God is saying to you in this Scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you.

A – Application

Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Write how this Scripture can apply to you today.

P – Prayer

This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this Scripture, or even a prayer for a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two-way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say! Now, write it out.
