In 2013, the Building and Grounds Committee began the task of prioritizing campus planning and infrastructure needs. They determined there was a great need to make sure we had a clear entrance to our church for everyone seeking a place of Hope.
In 2015, that vision transformed, calling on us to create a campus that was also a destination of Purpose, where, from the moment one enters the campus, they find an idyllic and serene setting - one that is a tangible reflection of beauty and peace in natural and holistic spaces.
Now in 2018, we are excited to break ground on the first phase of our Master Plan, the Entryway and Monument Project. Named the Trost Monument on Covington Way, our new monument and entryway from Cedar Springs will lead members, visitors and newcomers alike into our Hope-filled and Hope-full Campus.
During 2018, we will also be undertaking a redesign of our front plaza, beginning the process of connecting our two spiritual centers with a direct path from the main building to the Interfaith Peace Chapel.
This first phase of the project will include a stunning monument with Cathedral of Hope’s name, which will be located along Cedar Springs. It will be called the Trost Monument, to memorialize the late Robert Trost, who provided a sizable gift to launch this phase of the project.
We will pave a driveway leading from Cedar Springs to Nash Street. The Entryway will be called Covington Way, in memory of Lee Covington, a former member of Cathedral of Hope’s staff and Executive Assistant to three of our Senior Pastors. Covington died tragically in 2017. It was his life’s dream to see this project completed.
Fundraising Goal: $395,000
Already Raised: $315,000
Goal Remaining: $80,000
The plaza area in front of the church will be expanded and redesigned to connect the main church building with the Interfaith Peace Chapel. This area will be covered in bricks and is necessary in order to accommodate new facilities security improvements planned for in our recently received Homeland Security Grant.
Fundraising Goal: $30,000
While the Entryway and Plaza Redesign are the top priorities for this 2018 Project, we will also aim to complete the paving of the remainder of the drive from Nash Street behind the Interfaith Peace Chapel to the concrete parking lot the church owns, known as the “Ford” parking area. This driveway will help to create a scenic and inspiring welcome into our beautiful campus.
Fundraising Goal: $175,000
