$25,000 Update

Posted on February 22, 2013


We just took the biggest financial faith step of our lives this past week. We agreed to terms on a property that will bring Ebenezers Coffeehouse to Uptown Charlotte. The total cost of this project will be around $2,500,000. It’s absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to show everyone the architectural plans that are bringing this vision to life right in front of our eyes. The potential is off the charts. 
I got an email yesterday from our friend and partner in this vision, Mark Batterson. We have crafted an affiliation agrement that will be a model for others around the country to be able to reproduce Ebenezers in cities across the world. Check this out…
Hey David,

We want to give 1% toward the $2.5M ballpark target. 
Someone gave us $25K when we were building Ebenezer’s seven years ago…
It was the largest gift actually…
We’ve had a few more miracles since then 🙂 
We wanted to do for you what they did for us…

Maybe it’ll also help with other donors…
Praying for the floodgates to open! 

Needless to say, I freaked out (freaking out includes yelling at the top of my lungs in my office and doing some sort of very awkward happy dance). Talk about generosity and being of one heart and vision for the Kingdom of God.

Thanks to Mark and all of his team at NCC. Through the faithful generosity of people we may never meet in Washington, DC, we were able to be the beneficiaries of an incredible gift that we now get to steward in Charlotte, NC.

We are all in this together. Now let’s all scream and do an awkward dance together. Ebenezers is coming to Uptown Charlotte!
