After much prayer and deliberation, the move was approved by the expanding church’s membership and accepted with joy by the BCGEC’s leadership.
Now, Sundays at 10 AM, Redeemer30A will meet at the Boys and Girls Club of the Emerald Coast’s South Walton location at 427 Greenway Trail in Santa Rosa Beach.
“For the past two years, we have been praying for a space that would accommodate our growing body but have had many doors closed,” says Pastor David Huffman. “It’s been so great to look back and see how God has answered prayers in His perfect timing, in this perfect way.”
Redeemer30A met in the Tack Room of Arnett Stables for the past few years, but each Sunday more Christ-seekers poured into the space, often leaving only standing room or outside seating available. With an average of 200 people attending each service, all in attendance knew the church needed a new home.
Pastor Josh Pool explains that the new space found with the BGCEC meets the unique needs of Redeemer30A, giving the church dedicated classrooms for its children’s ministries and an indoor location for its monthly fellowship meals in addition to a larger worship space for the growing 105-covenanted-member body.
“We believe that this increase in space will position us to further our mission in Santa Rosa Beach and worldwide,” he says.
From helping with concessions at local high school sporting events and getting to know students who’ve traveled to the area on J1 visas to sending missionaries to help around the world, Redeemer30A actively works in our community and internationally to further its mission of spreading His word.
“We’re deeply committed to Christ and the authority of His word in our lives as we strive to make disciples and disciple-makers,” says Pastor Huffman. “We hope that with this new space we can share Jesus with every man, woman and child in South Walton, teaching them to clearly declare and sacrificially display His gospel in their everyday lives.”
Redeemer30A believes that if our church community is both being equipped and equipping, then the larger Santa Rosa Beach community will experience the good news about Jesus, focused on intentional discipleship—a church completely dedicated to its neighbors and co-workers, friends and families.
