about the project
In just the past three years, our team has grown from 18 staff members to a whopping 130! As our roster of LifeWise teachers and directors has grown, so has our LifeWise Support Center (HQ) staff. Several years ago, we purchased an older home in downtown Hilliard, OH to serve as our base for Support Center operations. Little by little, we’ve been renovating this house, putting staff in the former bedrooms, living room, breezeway, garage and even basement.
Looking ahead, our team is uncertain about our exact long-term needs for office space. How many staff members will work remotely? Will we have regional offices? There are several options before us. In the meantime, we want to maximize the potential of our current space, which means expanding to... (wait for it)… the backyard detached garage!
The Lord has blessed us with a free-standing building behind our office that is brimming with potential. Our intent is to renovate this building over the coming months to accommodate several more staff members. The plans include a small film studio for our increasing need for training and how-to videos as well as additional parking.
Will you consider a special year-end contribution to this project? Our goal is to raise $125,000 by December 31st to completely cover the cost without taking on any debt. Your gift will help make room for the continued growth of LifeWise and, in turn, more students hearing the gospel!
