Vision

In 2015, we set out to raise $1 million over three years to create a campus environment that is intuitive, inviting, and appealing and to continue being a catalyst for church planting in our community.

So far, our church body has committed $990,000 towards the goal.


Update

There are two parts to the project: Revitializing Our Campus and Planting The Next Church.

Construction update:  Parkcrest Street is completed! We are making significant progress on the area in front of the offices. The deck is completed and we’re working on the large sign and landscaping. We’re on target with all of the construction. Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we move forward with revitalizing our campus.

Church plant update: We are in talks with another local church that may give us their property for the sake of planting a new church, similar to Lakewood (now, Cityline) and 7th Street Church.

The improvement of our facilities is fast becoming a reality! Your continued faithful support of these efforts is tremendously appreciated!

Revitalize Our Campus

We are reimagining our location to be more appealing, inviting, and intuitive as well as take care of deferred maintenance.

We will begin the first phase of making our campus more appealing, inviting, and intuitive by:

  • Redoing our patio space into a better flowing, better looking, and more usable space that is appealing
  • Beginning the process of making our long driveway/front parking lot feel more like a main street making our campus more inviting and connected
  • Redoing a portion of the street front and entry experience as a better first impression and a more natural and usable gathering point
  • Creating more uniformed directional signage to help our campus navigation be more intuitive

The most significant deferred maintenance issue is to take care of our roofing.


Plant the Next Church

In February 2016, we planted our Lakewood Campus as an independent church. The new Cityline Church is a thriving, multi-ethnic congregation on the border of Lakewood and Bellflower. We are committed to being a catalyst for the next church God would have us plant.

Church planting has proved itself as an effective way to multiply ourselves for God’s kingdom work. New churches are more evangelistically effective and also bring new energy and ideas towards working for the good of the city. Through planting of churches, we multiply our effectiveness in being here for the good of others.

Parkcrest has been a catalyst for planting new churches. Since 2011, in a partnership with PlantLB, we have seen 13 new churches, including Cityline Church and 7th Street Church started in the Greater Long Beach area.

While we do not yet know the specifics of the next church plant, we do believe that God would have us continue moving forward in being a catalyst for planting new churches. Our strategy of utilizing an off-site campus that transitions into a healthy, independent church has shown itself to be successful and is how we will move forward with the next one as well. Based on previous experience, start-up costs for us to plant the next church will be $250,000.

 


Inspire Lasting Generosity

We are a generous church and see this campaign as an opportunity to spur ourselves toward the next level of generosity.

This is not just about raising money for our campus and church planting, but it can be a catalyst that spurs us on towards the spiritual discipline of being more generous with what we have.

Our goal was to raise $1 million over next three years. Through both one-time gifts and on-going monthly commitments, the Parkcrest family committed $990,000!
