The campus has 22,000 square feet of inspiring architecture, supported by modern, high-tech A/V equipment, theatrical lighting, computers, lecterns and furniture needed for religious services. The campus is growing. Ten communities use the campus at the present time and the construction process to add 5,200 additional square feet is underway.
ChurchSHARE provides high-quality worship space to Bradenton-Sarasota Florida faith-based communities on a shared basis. Sharing space reduces facility cost and provides empowering amenities at a fractional cost.
The campus is a serene setting in the heart of Bradenton. Its 700 trees and protected wet lands offer a sense of peace and tranquility. There are several sanctuaries (see site layout) ranging in size from 50 to 500 seats supported by classrooms, commercial kitchen, gymnasium, labyrinth, walking trail, prayer gardens, pond and ample parking.
1. Reduces Facility Costs
Sharing worship, fellowship and classroom space can save 50% over single use facilities. Utilities, janitorial supplies, insurance, ground maintenance and other indirect expenses are reduced as well.
2. Promotes Growth
Space can be a powerful tool. Sunday school is an example. Without classrooms, nursery, gymnasium, and playgrounds it is difficult to attract families with children. It’s like the "chicken or egg question," which comes first?
3. Improves Image
Many parishioners are uncomfortable attending a church located in a hotel, storefront or public school. Worshipping on a seven million dollar church campus empowers your congregation.
4. Wise Interim Step
Renting for a period of time allows you to financially strengthen as a spiritual community before taking on the responsibility of ownership. It will help put your losses in check and begin saving for the down payment on your own, free-standing church building.
"He who has two coats, let him share with him who has none; and he who has food, let him do likewise." (John the Baptist, Luke 3:11)
