Investing in Places
We reposition kingdom resources and transforming aging facilities into places where believers and non-believers alike can be excited and feel welcome to come learn about Jesus.
We partner with churches that are looking to increase their impact and bring them into our network, providing the opportunity to strengthen their leadership and improve their property – leading to an 1021.5% average increase in attendance*.
*Average increase from pre-vote to 3 months following reopening
A few examples
Palm Baptist Church, now Sandals Church Palm Avenue:
At the close of 2017, Palm Baptist had an average weekend attendance of 40 people in one weekend service.
Sandals Church Palm Avenue launched on Easter weekend of 2018 and now averages 1,100 people over four weekend services.
Amethyst Bible Church, now Sandals Church East Valley:
In 2016 Amethyst Bible Church had an average weekend attendance of 65 people when they chose to merge with Sandals Church. That December, Sandals Church East Valley launched and today they average 770 people over 5 weekend services and are preparing for a campus expansion to make room for even more people to learn about Jesus.
Renewal Christian Fellowship, now Sandals Church Moreno Valley:
Prior to merging with Sandals Church, they had 1 weekend service averaging 70 people. Today this campus sees an average of 530 weekly attendees over 2 services.
Lakeside Church, now Sandals Church Lake Arrowhead:
Leading up to the decision to merge with Sandals Church, this church offered 1 weekend service and averaged 45 people.
Sandals Church Lake Arrowhead launched in September 2018, today this campus averages 260 people over 2 weekend services.
“Just a stone’s throw from our campus there is a plan to build 3,500 homes… I thought, we want to be that place, we want to reach those people and but we were struggling so much.
This is what we always prayed for, what we always wanted to have happen, and now it is happening.”
-Gerry Newcombe, Amethyst Bible Church (now Sandals Church East Valley)
It really made sense for us, knowing that we had seen the church go from something that was huge 15 years ago and now we were down to 60 or 70 people, we were ready for something like this…
