Why the Northeastern corner of Old Seminole Heights in Tampa?
Northeast Old Seminole Heights is a diverse multicultural working class community. It's about 40% Black, 30% White, and 26% Hispanic. It consists of of long-term residents and lots of new folk who have moved in because of Seminole Heights' increased popularity. There are a high percentage of teenagers and young adults, a majority of renters but an increasing number of home-owning professionals. A 25% poverty rate is combined with an ever-growing middle-class

Northeast Old Seminole Heights is ripe for a gospel-driven church living out racial reconciliation while pursuing personal, family and neighborhood restoration through the gospel of Jesus Christ and holistic discipleship.
Why do we think Living Faith is called to this community in Old Seminole Heights?
First of all Living Faith is a multicultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-generational gospel-driven church. So we fit well demographically with that community. Plus our vision of Love is Our Life: Love God, Love One Another, and Love Neighbor assumes active discipleship through evangelism and restoration, but also neighborhood advocacy and chaplaincy. We want to be a gospel church not just in the neighborhood, but for the neighborhood. Our pastor lives in Old Seminole Heights and our public school outreach ministry is anchored in Central Tampa.

Moreover, the Lord has given us an opportunity to purchase a church property in the northeastern area of Old Seminole Heights which can serve as our discipleship center and mission headquarters as we serve our city and soon establish similar diverse churches which lean to Black and Brown communities throughout Tampa Bay.
How can you partner with us?
Would you please pray for us and this Mission Heights campaign? We need the Lord's presence and power if we are going to effectively reach that community with the gospel.

The sale price on the property is $1,025,000
We have an additional $35,000 needed for closing costs and lender stipulations
We have been approved for a mortgage of $700,000, praise God!
Through the Lord's generosity, we are able to apply $200,000 from Living Faith's coffers toward the purchase
We need to raise $160,000 toward the down payment, closing costs, and stipulations by December 20, 2020.
Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us through financial contribution toward this goal?

Giving Campaign Update from KB

2020 has taken so much from us...Covid-19 has taken lives from our community. Political division has ravished our nation and uncertainty of the future has gripped our hearts. But through it all God’s grace has never failed. Through the chaos, God has so kindly opened an opportunity for His church to bring light, hope and healing to a city in desperate need.  

For 8 years Living Faith has served faithfully, locally and abroad, cultivating a multi-ethnic, multi-national, multi-generational gospel community.  We’ve Longed and prayed for a permanent building in which we could center our efforts, not only as a house of worship but a missional launch pad for community transformation!  We believe God has brought us to such a place.  We have 30 days to raise the funds to acquire this property and we believe God will do it - Through the generosity of His people. Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us with a generous gift this holiday season?  

Join us in our commitment win to bring true gospel impact to the city of Tampa!
