A New Campus is Being Built!
Last year we purchased property has a total of 20.5 acres. It is undeveloped flat land near the main highway in Jefferson County. This property will allow us to move forward with a new sanctuary, parish hall, school, and mission center.
Would you lift your heart to Christ in prayer with and for the people here at Ascension, and ask Him about how you can partner with this ministry?
Posted below are testimonies about some of the lives changed and built up as a result of being part of the church. The annual goal in fundraising this year is 1 million dollars to break ground for the new construction. You may give online by clicking here and noting in the comment line, "Campus."
The approximately 10,000 square foot building will consist of the nave, that seats 350 people, a day care center, a prayer chapel, rooms for Bible study, pastoral care, mercy-ministries, and outreach development. Annual conferences for spiritual development and enrichment will be hosted on-site. Prayer trails through the wooded areas, an outside fire pit and fellowship area, and other features are being planned too.
Giving towards this project is giving that is multiplied in lives that are changed and transformed by the love and healing power of Jesus Christ.
Deacon Mike Koppola, shares:
Being a part of Ascension for our family has been a rich and blessed experience. We have gotten the chance to be a part of the robust discipleship ... This discipleship has been joined with a desire to walk in the love, gifts, and power of the Spirit. The Ascension family has loved us and prayed for us as we have grown in our relationship with Jesus. Together, we have partnered to advance the Kingdom of God, make disciples and exalt Christ in West Virginia.
Becoming a member at Ascension... has been one of the greatest guideposts during my adult life. To be taught in the Anglican faith has established the reverence that God and His Word deserve and has elevated my understanding to a broader capacity. Ascension has directed me towards solid principles to not only raise my young family in, but to abide by myself. Being a member of this church requires something of me that I can only describe as a part of my purpose here on earth. I am forever thankful for this body of Christ.
