Open The Windows – Capital Campaign


The Vision:
The mission of St. Andrew’s, illustrated through the words Glorify, Grow, and Go, exemplifies visionary approach to provide meaningful, engaging, and vibrant worship to our community. In addition to being good stewards, effectively using our physical resources, it is of primary importance to enhance our campus, to provide a wider range of outreach to neighborhood residents, and to reach our community in new ways.

The Solution:
In late 2016, the church created a task force to conduct a programming study for the entire church and school property prior to developing a 2017 Campus Site and Facilities Master Plan. The plan was subsequently adopted by the Leadership Council and announced to the congregation as the Open the Windows Capital Campaign.

The Impact:
This project will further the work of the church to bring Christ to the community and to grow the community through the message of Christ. Moreover, our campus and buildings will become more inviting to those who are part of the St. Andrew’s family as well as to those members of the nearby community seeking a safe, effective hub of the neighborhood – a place to feel God’s love.

Elements of the Project:
The task force has identified a four-phase master plan (see rendering).

Phase one:
Adding green space and security features, upgrading audio/visual systems, creating a multi-use playground and gathering area, and updating the paint and windows on all buildings.

Phase two:
Renovating the sanctuary, including blowing out the narthex, and upgrading the west parking lot.

Phase three:
Renovating the adult education rooms, creating new community space and a cafe, and upgrading the north parking lot.

Phase four:
Updating the kitchen to commercial grade, and recapturing the fellowship hall space.

The Cost:
Phase one demolition and construction estimates total approximately $1.6 million.

Guiding the Project:
The fundraising efforts of the renovation will be led by Campaign Committee co-chairs Pam and Paul Rohlfs and Jennifer and Bob Marshall, with the support of Reverend Michael Crocker, Pastor. The renovation and construction is led by the Constructions Steward Committee, chaired by John Kirk.
