Why a Building?
Our desire is to establish a distinct community presence for Mid-Valley Fellowship in the Central Willamette Valley. Currently, we use shared space that does not provide a unique identity, has limited office space, and does not allow for the housing of interns. This distinct community presence will be a place that is known for God’s healing and restoration for the sexually broken. In our current cultural climate, there are many voices about sexuality and sexual wholeness that are in conflict with God’s perspective. At a time like this, it is even more crucial that we have places of God’s healing and restoration. Equally as important is the development of leaders who will carry forward God’s redemptive message. An intentional community is an effective context in which to live, learn, and grow as leaders. A building would provide space to create that community, adding a residential component to our current Erēmos Internship.
