Future Campus


"Now to him who is able to do immeasurable more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
- Ephesians 3:20-21

The Process

At the December 2020 Business Conference the church established a Long Term Planning Team to research and assess the needs of a future campus of Beach Road Baptist Church. From this research the team identified several conclusions and spent over 15 months and hundreds of hours in creating a recommendation to meet the needs of these conclusions. Below you will see renderings and layouts to what we believe is the future campus of Beach Road Baptist. Consider how God would have you give to this future hub of ministry.

Watch the Presentation



We are calling the church to a time of prayer asking God to help us to remain focused on our mission to “Make and Mature Followers of Jesus”, to protect the unity of the church body, and to give us wisdom in the days ahead for important decisions that need to be made


If you have additional questions prior to the April 10th vote, please participate in one of two additional informational sessions. The Long Term Planning Team will be set up in Room 101 after each service on Sunday, March 27th and April 3rd. They will have floorpans and renderings available for review and are happy to answer your questions.

We also want members to make it a priority to be present on April 10th to cast their vote. You must be present to vote; per the church by-laws.


We are asking the church to begin now to seek the Lord’s guidance in how you should give to this project. You do not have to wait for the official Capital Campaign to begin. You can begin to give incrementally or in a lump sum gift now by designating your gift to the building fund that is already established.

Imagine the Impact | FAQ’S

What is the scope of the project?

The project includes the renovation of the current Filling Station and Route 45 areas for interim children’s ministry, the demolition of the current education wing and the construction of a new 18,000 sq. ft., 2-story building that will house an expanded lobby, new children’s ministry space, new offices, a kitchen and small cafe, as well as, twelve new flexible meeting/classroom spaces.

What needs does this project address?

This project addresses a number of needs that were identified by the staff and congregation including: a single unified entrance for the church campus, a larger lobby area to provide additional space for fellowship gathering before and after services, new and secure space for children’s ministry, expanded classroom/meeting rooms for youth and adult Connect Groups, updated and centrally located kitchen along with a small cafe for fellowship.

How does this project affect the current sanctuary?

The current sanctuary is sufficient for our current and future needs. There will be minimal impact on the sanctuary with the exception of adding another set of entrance doors.

How much will the project cost?

The current projected cost for renovation, demolition, construction and all other associated costs is $5.5 million. The estimated cost is approximately $250/sq. ft.

How will the project be funded?

The project will be funded with a combination of cash on hand, a construction loan and a capital campaign.

What is a Capital Campaign?

A Capital Campaign is a mechanism to fund the financing gap between our cash on hand and our construction loan. Typically, a goal is set and the church body is encouraged to make a pledge of money they will give over and above their tithe. The pledge amount is typically paid over a period of three years.

For example: Family “A” pledges to give $12,000 to the capital campaign over the three year period. They would give $333.33 per month for 36 months, or could give a one-time gift, or pay in other installments.

When will the Capital Campaign Begin?

The Capital Campaign is expected to launch late Summer or early Fall of this year. The team will have an extensive communication plan with a calendar of events leading up to the official launch. Stay tuned for additional information!

What portion of the project cost will be funded by the Capital Campaign?

Based on current projections, the Capital Campaign will need to generate approximately $2 million in order for the project to move forward. An official goal and all pertinent information will be shared by the Capital Campaign Team.

When is the project scheduled to begin and how long will it take?

There is no official start date as the project must still be approved by the church membership. The official vote on the recommendations will take place in a Special Called Business Conference at the end of each service on Sunday, April 10th.
Once approved and all financial needs are secured the project will take approximately 10-12 months from the time we break ground.

Who will determine when the project begins and manage the process?

The congregation will vote on a recommendation to authorize three teams to make those decisions and ensure that the project is moving forward. Those teams are the Long Term Planning Team, Capital Campaign Team and the Budget and Finance Committee. This represents approximately 20 individual individuals from the church membership.

What is the future plan for the renovated Filling Station/Route 45 area after the construction is complete?

We envision this space being utilized for our Impact youth ministry in some way once we are able to move into the newly constructed ministry space for children.
