Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is Build Your Kingdom Here?
    • BYKH is a specific fund designated for the facility needs of Grace Collective Church.
    • Our current financial goal for BYKH is $60,000 based on our anticipated needs for future facility costs.
  2. Can we continue to rent or purchase the 914 Cherry Road property?
    • Trinity Bible Church is actively working to sell the property.
    • GCC will continue to rent through October in the event the property sells to another group.
    • We are working with a Church Lending company to secure financial capabilities to make an offer on the property.
  1. What is our plan if 914 Cherry Road is bought by someone else?
    • We need a minimum of 6,000 square feet to accommodate our Sunday morning worship environments.
    • HVAC systems, and multiple restrooms are also required.
    • Adequate parking is also a need in considering facilities. We will need parking for 50 to 80 cars.
    • Our Leadership is also actively looking for alternate facilities in the event of this scenario.
  1. What are the costs of the market?
    • Our current monthly rent is $4,000 plus utilities on the 11,000 sq. ft. at 914 Cherry Road.
    • Warehouse space averages approx. $5 per square foot. 6,000 sq ft. would cost $2500 each month. Warehouse space (assuming it has adequate parking) would most likely require installation of HVAC. That could be a considerable cost in the tens of thousands of dollar range.
    • Retail spaces (free-standing or store front) averages approx. $14 per square foot. 6,000 sq. ft. would cost $7000 per month. Retail space rarely has more than one or two bathrooms. Additional restrooms would need to be installed. This would be a considerable cost as well.
    • Schools are often used by church plants. The cost for renting schools is set by the School District. The space needed and school administrator, janitorial, and technical assistance required by the District policy would cost between $5000 and $7000 per month. We would also have to purchase a trailer or box truck to store our belongings each week. Onsite storage is highly unlikely in a school facility.
  1. What are the geographical options?
    • Central Rock Hill or proximity to I-77 would be optimal locations. As options move outside of those areas, ease of access and directions becomes a factor. We want to find a location that is easily recognizable or requires simple directions. We are looking to stay in Rock Hill as opposed to Fort Mill, York, etc.
  1. What can I do to help?
