Be Part of the Story

After 9 years, almost 500 Sunday set-ups as a mobile church, Joy Fountain has landed on a permanent home. The limitations of renting a space only 4 hours a week are soon to be over! Those mobile years weren’t for nothing - we’ve reached people, become a family and learned how to serve unconditionally - but we are ready for MORE. These next 6 months come along for the journey - watch as we convert this raw 5000 sq ft warehouse into a home for Joy Fountain. You can help us make this possible with your financial donation and sharing in the excitement - tell your friends, tell your neighbors- spread the Word!

While we wait on the permit, the volunteers have been working hard to get the site ready for framing, electrical, plumbing, heat. The massive pile of reusable wood has been stripped of nails - each board is a minimum 4$ saved! Way to go team! Quotes are being collected for the required work and meetings are being held.

The Before & The After - Part 2

This building is what I would like to call “raw”.  Many look at a space like this and see all the work to be done.. For me I see all the opportunity. Starting from nothing means we don’t NEED to “make it work”.. but that we CAN make it work. After the first walk-through of the space I asked the Lord “How do we make it all fit?” He showed me, very clearly. The sanctuary will hold approx 140 seats (in time we plan to run multiple services), 2 offices, 3 kids ministry spaces, 1 nursing room, kitchenette, storage and […]
