Liberty Church Capital Campaign

In 2019 we started work on a $5 million capital campaign that will officially launch in Spring 2020. The campaign will allow us to make much need renovations to our facilities and deepen and expand our work in the community. After much consideration and discussion, we have chosen not to leverage or mortgage our buildings, and have adopted a “Build as we raise Funds” approach, without creating a long-term financial burden on our congregation.

Once the funds are raised, the work will be completed in three phases. Phase one and two will focus on stabilizing and upgrading our two buildings. Phase three incudes adding an elevator and exterior site improvements. Initial improvements include:

  • Improving accessibility
  • Replacing windows
  • Water mitigation
  • Upgrading and replacing furniture, fixtures and equipment
  • Upgrading our kitchen and bathrooms

In addition, we will use funds to expand the work of the Northside Healing Space and 21st Century Academy. The additional funding will allow us to increase the number of individuals, youth, and families that we can serve, add staff to the Northside Healing Space, and make available more space and healing resources to our community.

Two-Year Campaign Includes

Building Renovation:$3,750,000
Program Expansion:$1,000,000
Infrastructure:$250,000

Why Liberty?

We are committed to disrupting the systems of inequality. Faith-based organization like us are a key-player in promoting healthy communities. Working with our partners to tackle trauma, commercial sexual exploitation, unemployment, concentrated poverty and school dropout rates can seem overwhelming, but when partnerships are formed to act based on the lived experiences and voices in the community, healing happens!

Why faith-based organizations?

  • For many communities, faith organizations represent credible and caring members in which the community has confidence.
  • In almost all faith organizations, a critical call to provide services those in need and the most vulnerable in integral to living their faith.
  • Faith organizations are already on the frontlines where community issues are first identified at a point where they can be resolved.
