Loan Empowers Mosaic Church
By Rev. Dr. Andrew J. Young II, Lead Pastor of Mosaic Church in Savannah
Savannah is a growing community. Though the church (New Covenant) had been both faithful and fruitful in making disciples where it was; the scale and scope of the church’s physical plant had become too burdensome to effectively reach new people.
As we discussed the plan for the building, it became clear the vision we had of creating a space where people could gather and grow in various ways could be better accomplished through other means. One of our church’s most fruitful outreach ministries over the past 10 years has been our award-winning preschool.
Through a recommendation of the District Board of Trustees, we enlisted GUMF’s support to aid in the relocation of the preschool to the new location. GUMF’s funding underwrites the costs of construction, stocking and start-up for this amazing new outreach into the hearts of our neighbors. With GUMF’s help, we are also expanding the preschool’s size; thereby empowering us to serve even more children and families.
Our new location offers a smaller physical plant, lower operating expenses, more outdoor space, and most importantly, closer proximity to new people, communities, and families for the furtherance of the gospel.
