This building, is the place we like to call “The Palm Tree Church”. Now, technically that’s not the name of it, it has a sign with the name of the previous organization on it. However, we are believing and have faith that soon that sign will say “Destination Church of Navarre”
My mom, who is the pastor alongside my dad, of Destination Church of Navarre, knew from the moment, even before this for sale sign went up, this was the place Destination Church needed to call home. She started digging and finding out who owned it , there was a beautiful church just sitting there, waiting to be used. Now, before I continue let me go back a bit.
As you can see, right now, we meet in a school. Which, has not been a bad thing. It’s served as a great meeting place, but now is the time God is really pushing Destination Church to go big! We want a place we can have worship practice, dance team practice, a place that can be used in the community for good. For instance, the after school dance group, that so many kids loved, didn’t get to take place this school year because they had nowhere to meet. How awesome would that be, for our building to be a meeting place for something like that.
Every Sunday, because we meet in a school, we have to set up and tear down all the sound equipment and instruments, the dance team stuff, and the kids church has to meet in the teachers breakroom or a hallway, if the former is not available. We want to do so much, but are so limited because we don’t have a permanent home, but we are hoping to change that.
My mom, has been faithfully pursuing, believing and following God’s lead in hopes of making “The Palm Tree Church” our home. Once the property officially went up for sale, she started doing everything she could to raise money, it was so inspiring to watch and be a part of. Unfortunately, we didn’t get close to what the asking price was, but that’s a-okay because God is a God of miracles.
They still have their building fund and I have no doubt it is going to come in handy. However, we just found out that the building is no longer for sale, but on May 14, 2014 it’s going up for auction. It would be so easy to throw our hands up and say “Why in the world is this happening, we believed that was meant for us” but that’s not what my mom (nor I) will do. We know this isn’t a surprise to God, He already knew this was going to happen. We thought we were raising money to buy it when it was for sale, but seems we have been raising money to get it at the auction. This, is such a dream for all the members of the church, we want to go to that auction and leave with a testimony and a new building!
We have no doubt God is working, and we have no doubt He is going to use someone, or several someones, to help make this dream a reality. We would love for you to pray and agree that on May 14, 2014 we will walk into the auction and out with a new building. We also know that faith without works is dead, so I am going to ask each of you to also pray about partnering with Destination Church of Navarre and donating to the building fund! Your donation will be tax deductible. If you are lead to be a part of this exciting adventure financially here is the information you need:

I have watched my mom and dad, the pastors, do so much for the community, have faith when things looked hopeless, and always put others before themselves. If I could make this one thing happen on my own, for them, I would do it in a heartbeat (who knows, between now and May 14, God may send me a $500,000 blog contract, nothing is to big for him), but as of the moment of this post, I don’t have that, so I am asking you all to pray about donating.
So, are you ready to help build a dream? I know I am!! Have a blessed day and get ready to watch and see the goodness of God!
