THIS YEAR’S PROJECTS

Bonner Springs Church Plant | $50k

Our church has a long history of helping plant churches around our city. One of our church plants, Mill Creek Community Church in Shawnee, is planting a new church called Proclaim Church in Bonner Springs. We are partnering with them in this endeavor which will make Proclaim and “granddaughter” church of ours. Proclaim already has a solid core of Christ-followers meeting in home small groups. They plan to launch public services next fall. Read more about it.

Pastor Training Center in Key Afer, Ethiopia | $50k

Olathe Bible Church has been working in the Omo River Valley of Ethiopia for several years now, reaching isolated tribes with the gospel. A critical part of the strategy is to raise up and develop indigenous leaders. We already support the Turmi Bible School in the southern part of the Omo River Valley. Now, we giving $50,000 towards the construction of a new pastor training center in the village of Key Afer located in the northern part of the valley.

Facility Expansion Planning & Development | $100k

We are blessed to see our building get used for a variety of discipleship activities throughout the week. On Sundays, the foyer, auditorium and children’s classes can often feel like a sausage grinder with all the people that come. We realize that it is time to expand our facilities to position ourselves to better serve those who call Olathe Bible Church home and to reach those in our surrounding community. This $100k will go towards laying the groundwork for expansion, including site studies and initial architectural  planning.

Church Reserve Fund | $150k

Thanks to your generosity and commitment, our church finances are healthy. However, the regular ebbs and flows of a ministry year means that income isn’t always steady. The reserve fund helps us keep our cash flow in good shape. It’s a cushion that allows ministries to operate more effectively throughout the year. It also puts us in a great position to respond to critical needs as they might arise.
