At a special called business meeting on Wednesday evening, December 12, 2018, Pastor Danny, Scott Gurosky (President of MG&A), and Randy Pittman (church treasurer and longtime Shades member) spoke and answered questions about the project’s scope, cost, and financing. Mr. Pittman submitted a motion on behalf of the Finance Committee and Deacons unanimously recommending that we move forward with the NEXT initiative by using a combination of pledged funds and the necessary debt to complete the project with a maximum investment not to exceed $11.8 million. The church body then voted to move forward with the NEXT Initiative! Construction will begin Monday, February 11, 2019, following our Global Impact Celebration.
