frequently asked questions

What is the purpose of the Sow Strong Campaign?

Second Baptist Church is raising capital to fund the execution of our Master Plan.


What does the Master Plan include?

You can see the entire Master Plan in this presentation.


What is the cost of the Master Plan?

The project is broken into two phases with a total of approximately $20 million. The current approved Phase One is $10 million.


Will the church take on debt to complete this project?

The church approved by corporate vote that the church can access up to $5 million in loans to execute the project. The goal of the church leadership is to raise the necessary funds to execute the project without having to access additional loans. However, for cash flow purposes there could be moments during the project where a revolving line of credit will need to be used.


Is there work that must be done if we do not execute the Master Plan?

Yes, there is approximately $3 million of deferred maintenance that must be done. It can be done within the capital campaign as updates/renovation take place.


Was Phase One of the Master Plan approved?

Yes, the church approved Phase One to begin by a corporate vote.


What areas of the church will be affected by Phase One?

The areas and people of the church who will be affected by Phase One are the preschool ministry, children’s ministry, and Adult Bible Fellowship / small group spaces.


What can I do to help with the execution of the Master Plan? 

We would ask that you pray for God to use this Plan to bring people into his Kingdom and disciple those who walk onto our campus. Pray that God would show you where you can be generous to help with the execution of the Plan. Prayerfully consider what a meaningful three-year pledge could be for your family. Every gift matters and helps. Ask good questions so you can speak intelligently to others about the purpose of the Plan.
