Springs Church has launched a campaign to expand its Winnipeg campus.
The church says their school, Springs Christian Academy, is currently bursting at the seams at both campuses, and within the next two years, both their Youville and Lagimodiere Campuses are expected to outgrow their existing facilities.
"At Springs Christian Academy, we’re intentional in creating a specific environment that allows children to embrace their childhood while instilling in them a strong Biblical foundation," said Zach Fontaine, senior pastor of Springs Church and president of Springs Christian Academy. "This new building will not only welcome more students, but it will help nurture their understanding of their identity in Christ!"
On Sunday the church launched its 'Build the Future' campaign to help with the construction costs of a new 135,000-square-foot facility that will be built next to their 595 building and eventually house over 700 students from Grades 5-12.
"We believe that we will complete this project debt-free! With the total cost at $45 million and $15 million secured through asset sales, our fundraising goal is $30 million over the next two years," said Springs Church in a statement online.
With three gymnasiums and a multi-purpose space equipped with a commercial kitchen, this new facility will not only accommodate their educational needs but will also serve as a hub for their Springs Church kids programs, youth activities, events for young adults, family functions and other future events.
"This new building opens doors for events catering to our youth, young adults and various other groups, offering countless opportunities to come together and grow in Christ," said the church. "This new facility isn’t just about space – it’s a gateway to deeper connections with Christ."
