Renovations are in ‘High-gear” to complete our new CBC – STUDENT ACTIVITIES CENTER by late October! We are working at a frantic pace installing new HVAC system, electrical, fire safety, lighting, flooring, a new stage area, sound booth and the needed audio and video to complete a venue that will allow Calvary’s Student Ministry to continue to grow, and more importantly have a place they can call their permanent home. Gone will be the days of setting-up and breaking-down the Anderson Center for every Student event!

Thanks for your vision and faithfulness
Because of your generosity through our “Open Doors” vision campaign, we purchased this 4-acre property (December 2012) at 150 S. McMullen Booth Road for $2.25M and are now spending approximately $600,000 in renovation dollars. We are transforming this former office building into a state-of-the-art Student Ministry venue. Initial remodeling of this 17,500 sq. ft. building will renovate approximately 8,000 sq. ft. into a worship and gathering space. In the future we will complete phase 2, which will remodel the other half of this facility into Student GroupLife space for Community and Life classes to take place. Of the $2.85M in costs for this project, we have used “Open Doors” cash of $1.65M to pay down this debt and pay for all renovations to a current amount owed of $1.20M. Even better, thanks to your continued faithfulness in supporting our vision campaign, we will be able to payoff the remaining balance by the end of 2014!
I hope you can share in the excitement our entire staff and leadership has for the future of our Student Ministry at Calvary. Working in concert with our own Calvary Christian High School, our new East Lake campus, that strategically sits in front of East Lake High School, our Student Ministry Team and prayer, we certainly are positioned for some exciting times ahead! My prayer is that we energize and engage every student in the Tampa Bay area to love Jesus! Are you with me?
