Follow God Forward
God is inviting us to shape the future for His glory and His fame. We believe He intends to use our church to bring untold thousands to faith in Novi, Milford, and beyond. NEXT is a two-year capital campaign that flows from Jesus’ mandate to “Go, make disciples…” and seeks to fulfill Oak Pointe’s mission to know Jesus and make Him known.
NEXT is all about creating space for an even greater level of connection. That’s because lives are transformed in the context of community. When we serve and connect with people who have not yet found faith, we can help them spark a relationship with God. This kind of organic growth – person to person – is at the heart of NEXT.
“NEXT will require more than just our money. It’ll take our time and our abilities. But I’m excited to give in any way I am able so more people can call Oak Pointe Milford their church, too.”
– Aaron Gaubatz
Campaign Goal: $14,000,000
With a heart for outreach, the campaign encompasses expansion for both the physical campuses of Novi and Milford, plus sets aside funds for 2-3 church plants in the next five years. We have targeted $14,000,000 over and above regular giving January 2019-January 2021.
NEXT will expand Oak Pointe Novi with dynamic spaces for gathering and connection. It will make us a greater resource to the community. We hope to break ground in the spring of 2020 and complete them 12-18 months later.
NEXT will transform Oak Pointe Milford to accommodate rapid growth and optimize space for every area of ministry. We hope to break ground in the spring of 2020 and complete them 12-18 months later.
NEXT will also pave the way for future church planting so we can bring the Oak Pointe experience to even more communities. We plan to launch two or three campuses or church plants over the next five years.
“Investing in the church so we can grow is totally worth the sacrifice. The gospel is worth it. People are worth it.”
– Sarah Kief
As you dive into the campaign, you’ll see that NEXT isn’t about bricks and mortar. It’s about each one of us taking our place as living stones (1 Peter 2:4-5). NEXT means bringing people together, knowing Jesus and making Him known.
