ENLARGE YOUR HOUSE. YOU ARE GOING TO NEED A BIGGER PLACE; DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE AMOUNT OF ROOM THAT YOU’LL NEED. SO BUILD, BUILD, BUILD.
ISAIAH 54:2 (VOICE)
Springs as we know it today has always been and will always be centered around family. Our history depicts one that has kept a generational mindset and outlook – with Jesus at the centre of it all. I look in awe at the foresight that our founding pastors displayed in the decisions they made some two decades ago to secure ample land around our Lagimodiere campus in Winnipeg. At the time, the vision was not entirely clear, but we now understand that this decision would pave the way for future growth and expansion. This big-picture vision has paid off over the years, and in my mind, this miracle is nothing short of phenomenal!
At Springs Christian Academy, we’re intentional in creating a specific environment that allows children to embrace their childhood while instilling in them a strong Biblical foundation. This new building will not only welcome more students, but it will help nurture their understanding of their identity in Christ! We’re not just about seeing students graduate. We’re shaping the future by helping them excel academically, athletically, and in every aspect, all while focusing on Jesus.
This campus will not only cater to our Middle and High School needs, but it will also offer sports facilities and multi-purpose areas, serving as a unique point of connection for families. Additionally, this facility will benefit both school and church activities, enabling more community engagement and outreach through various programs and events.
Springs Church and SCA have always shared a deep spiritual connection. Whether at church or at school, students are equipped with a solid foundation of faith. With this new building, the school is sure to flourish in unprecedented ways, and aligns both organizations in advancing the Kingdom of God with equal impact.
While the world seeks to influence and indoctrinate our youth, we stand firm in imparting the truths and doctrines outlined in God’s Word. These graduates emerge armed and prepared, not just academically, but spiritually too, knowing who they are and whose they are–young men and women going into the world passionately loving God AND people.
This isn’t just another building but a stake in the ground as we literally and figuratively ‘Build the Future’.
We are calling on YOU to help BUILD the FUTURE! We believe that by rallying together we can raise $30 million over two years and transform generations for Christ. Our plan is to do this by:
Expanding our Winnipeg Campus:
This new building will eventually house over 700 students from Grades 5-12. This versatile space won’t just accommodate our educational needs but will also serve as a hub for our Springs Church kids programs, youth activities, events for young adults, family functions and an array of exciting future events.
Building a 135,000 square foot facility:
This new building will specifically cater to our Middle School and High School. The key benefit will be that it streamlines our school’s setup, housing the entire institution on one amazing campus. This consolidation promises a more unified educational experience for all our students.
Funding the construction of this new facility:
We believe that we will complete this project debt-free! With the total cost at $45 million and $15 million secured through asset sales, our fundraising goal is $30 million over the next two years. Your contribution toward achieving this debt-free vision will be instrumental in making this project a reality, impacting lives for generations to come.
We are believing that we will build this building DEBT-FREE!
Please pledge over and above your regular giving as we still need to operate as usual while fundraising. Your pledges help us to plan accordingly.
Building the future for all.
Uniting hearts in purpose.
Love in action.
Dedicated to future generations.
“BUILD” captures our commitment to fostering growth, love and dedication toward shaping a better future.
• ESTABLISHED IN 1985
• MOVED TO YOUVILLE CAMPUS IN 1991
• EXPANDED TO TWO CAMPUSES IN 1999
• ALMOST 40 YEARS OF PROVIDING EXCELLENCE IN CHRISTIAN EDUCATION
Our school is currently bursting at the seams at both campuses. Within the next two years,both our Youville and Lagimodiere Campuses will outgrow their existing facilities – even after several additions have been built. This new facility will not only accommodate this growth but also provide room for future expansion. At the completion of this new build, our school will be situated on one location, rather than two – thus eliminating the need for bussing students between campuses.
On Sundays, our kids classes will make great use of this new facility. Many classes will relocate to this new building, which will allow for more growth as well. It will remove the need for bussing on Sundays too, as the new build connects directly to our existing 595 facility.
Our desire is for every child to become a fully devoted follower of Christ. This building is the next step in helping us continue to provide an environment where kids can bring their friends to learn about Jesus. Building the future is all about raising Spirit Contemporary leaders who will boldly share the Gospel and change the world.
Building relationships on purpose requires an environment created with purpose!
Let’s be real. Whether you are young or old, building a relationship with God is easier (and more enjoyable!) with others around.
With three gymnasiums and a large multi-purpose space equipped with a commercial kitchen, this new building opens doors for events catering to our youth, young adults and various other groups, offering countless opportunities to come together and grow in Christ. It will also house growing midweek events and ministries such as our Bible School, Leadership Levels and Life Courses.
This new facility isn’t just about space – it’s a gateway to deeper connections with Christ.
Back in 1997, when the church was campaigning for our 595 location, we were just a young couple managing our money to make ends meet. The church asked us to pledge, and we answered that call. Throughout that campaign, the church placed the names of donors in the foundation of that building. It wasn’t until years later, after I began working at Springs, that I saw a photo of our names on the foundation of the very building we meet in on Sundays. Seeing that photo immediately brought me to tears. This wasn’t a fundraising gimmick but rather a spiritual gesture that honoured those who gave towards people coming to know Christ. Every person that gave their life to Christ, every family that was restored, every person that was healed… my wife and I had a part in that!
We truly value each and every contribution made to this project as a meaningful sacrifice by the giver.
