“So the whole community of Israel left Moses and returned to their tents. All whose hearts were stirred and whose spirits were moved came and brought their sacred offerings to the LORD. They brought all the materials needed for the Tabernacle, for the performance of its rituals, and for the sacred garments. Both men and women came, all whose hearts were willing. They brought to the LORD their offerings of gold—brooches, earrings, rings from their fingers, and necklaces. They presented gold objects of every kind as a special offering to the LORD. All those who owned the following items willingly brought them: blue, purple, and scarlet thread; fine linen and goat hair for cloth; and tanned ram skins and fine goatskin leather. And all who had silver and bronze objects gave them as a sacred offering to the LORD. And those who had acacia wood brought it for use in the project.”
Exodus 35:20-24 NLT
Inspire Church is a thriving community of believers whose mission is to inspire people to fulfill their God-given potential. In addition to 3 locations on the island of Oahu, a church in the Philippines, and numerous outreach opportunities, we believe we have only just begun the exciting journey in completing the work that God has commissioned us for.
To bring you up to speed, we have negotiated a 10-year lease extension at our Waikele Shopping Center location. Included in the lease extension is the addition of 12,000 square feet of space. We are in the process of creating an innovative design that will take the Waikele Ministry Center from its current 37,000 square feet to 65,000 square feet of thriving ministry space.
We are excited about the opportunities that the additional building space will provide for our Student Ministries, which includes our keiki from infant to college age. There is the potential to design uniquely creative and exciting spaces for our children’s weekend services for elementary kids, and a new and vibrant area for 5th through 8th graders. In addition to these plans we also hope to create a functional and inviting multipurpose young adults space that will serve our college extension site and young adults ministry. We will also be developing a practical office environment for the central services necessary to support the continuing expansion of Inspire Church locally and globally.
This entire project will only happen with the partnership of generous people like you, praying and pushing forward together for greater future impact. Thank you in advance for serving selflessly, giving generously, and having a heart to love people day in and day out.
As we journey through this season of Provision for the House together, take the time to prayerfully seek God’s leading in how you can financially support the vision for the now with a heart on what's next. When we are willing to do our part, God is faithful to do His.
Lisa and I feel unbelievably blessed to pastor the people of Inspire Church. Let us continue to be a source of hope and healing to those God continues to bring into the House.
