Check out these exciting details from the Gateway Austin website:
With 24/7 space, from which we can serve South Austin like never before, there will be space for helping children, teenagers, college students, young adults, singles, couples, and families live connected, be transformed, and change our world.
We’ve found a prime location along William Cannon, ideally located to connect with several neighborhoods in South Austin. We’ll have 17,000 sq. ft. with plenty of parking.
Moving into a 24/7 space would allow us to expand what we are doing with NextGen, recovery, the arts, life groups, networks, our serve initiatives and enable us to start new initiatives to meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of our city.
The projected budget to build out and lease this space is $800,000. We currently have $250,000 given and pledged through 2015 through Life Giving Life. To complete the build out, we need to raise an additional $550,000.
In addition, our next exciting goal is to launch a Central campus in 2015-16 to serve those in downtown and East Austin.
To help us: keep serving, keep reaching out to your neighbors and co-workers, and keep giving. If you haven’t connected in these ways, let us know how we can help you get started!
Would you pray and ask God how He would have you participate in changing your world though creating space for connection?
