ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

Bethel Atlanta exists to empower people to reign in life, whoever they are, wherever they are, and whatever they do. The BUILD campaign represents our 3 year plan to pay off half our building debt by 2020. We are also looking to raise $500,000 in one-time donations to cover the audio visual installation and furnishings for the new building. Our goal is to break ground in 2017 and move in to our new building during the summer of 2018. We are asking for your best one time gift and a 3 year commitment to move us closer to being debt free and help us continue to create community and family around the presence of God.

A LETTER FROM STEVE & LINDY

Dear Friends and Family,
From the beginning, Bethel Atlanta has been a house of dreams. Dreams have guided our direction and shaped our vision to see family, worship and the testimony of Jesus released in our city.

Twelve years ago, we began in our home with 30 or so people and soon we were bursting at the seams. As we grew, we needed more space and we have moved from rental space to rental space all the while looking for a place our church could call home. I would venture to say that our team looked at every possible property, available or not, on the south side of Atlanta. We considered hundreds of properties in all different stages of development, yet nothing ever felt right. Nothing felt like it could hold the dreams we had for both our church and our city. Nothing felt like home.

Yet, God is faithful, not just with his promises, but with his timing. When we found the land we have come to call the Bethel Campus, every person on our staff knew we had found our home. And now, I’m excited to announce that it is finally our season to BUILD.

While our original plans were to begin construction on the undeveloped 56 acres located off Hwy 74, the costs of construction on that piece of land were more than expected.  We believe that one of Bethel Atlanta’s mandates is to be a debt free church and a debt free people.  When our construction bids came back higher than we felt comfortable, we decided to wait, unwilling to compromise our belief in being debt free for the convenience of a quick build.  Instead, we believed that this was an opportunity for a better option.  During the summer of 2018 while meeting on Saturday nights, we felt the Lord say it was time to go home.  After several prophetic words, dreams and coincidences, we decided to move our services onto our property in September of 2018.

The only way we could facilitate our goal was to meet in a tent and we have been doing just that since that time.  We have noticed a significant difference in our Sunday services since moving home and we see God doing something special in our body.  Now after seeing increased life and momentum in our people during this tent season, we couldn’t be more grateful that we waited on a new opportunity.  We are elated that our first permanent home will be built on the initial tent site.  It will be adjacent to our office building overlooking the lake and we are excited to create a beautifully arranged and intentionally planned space for our church family to do continue doing life together.

As we near the end of the planning and permitting process, we are thankful for the journey we have been on.  Our property has always been stunning and our main priority was to protect that natural beauty throughout all we do and build.  All we build here will only enhance and invest in what already exists.  It is a season to build, not just the Kingdom, but also a building that we can call home.  I hope you will take advantage of the resources, videos and updates available on this page.  We want to be completely transparent in this process and keep you as updated as possible.  There isn’t any one, two or even ten people in the church who can make this building happen alone; it will take all of us giving time, energy and finances together to build Bethel Atlanta’s home.  Lindy and I love being part of this family and we are blessed to reign in life together with each of you.  Here’s to a new season of dreams coming true and foundations being laid for generations to come.

Blessings,
Steve and Lindy Hale
