REACH

You are part
of our story...

over the last sixteen years, Sandals Church has become a place where the life changing power of the gospel can enter the lives of people who are looking for a fresh start.

You are
invited...

to be a part of writing the next chapter of our collective story as we seek to REACH our world for God's Kingdom.

The Vision

In the book of Acts, Jesus makes this statement, "You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." In saying that, he not only laid out the plan for Christians throughout history, he also laid out the blueprint for the future of Sandals Church.

We call it REACH.

REACH is about community, generosity and shared struggle. We know that, as the Bible says, a cord made of three strands is not easily broken. Now is the time for you to join thousands of others from Sandals Church as we REACH up to God in acts of worship, REACH out to our community in love and REACH deep within ourselves to multiply our effectiveness and influence.

The Plan

The REACH campaign is comprised of five strategic initiatives aimed at reaching our immediate, local and global communities with the love of Christ and the message of authenticity.

Capacity Community University Extend Plant

Increase Capacity

When we moved into our building more than three years ago, our setup was intended to be temporary until we were able to build out a larger, permanent facility according to our master plan. Since 2010, we have grown from 2,000 regular attenders to more than 5,000 and have now overgrown the temporary setup. With more than 2,000 homes being built across the street from our facility, we know that God is calling us to expand our capacity so that the message of hope in Christ can be shared with those who will call our community home.

Since 1997, Sandals Church has been home to normal, everyday people business owners and homemakers, educators and baristas who iterally become the grace of God through their own simple acts of obedience, authenticity and sacrificial generosity. Now, it's time for us to join together and take the vision of being real further than ever before. Are you ready to REACH?

Global Outreach

  • Increase our support for missions efforts worldwide
  • Send out at least 11 missionaries in 2014
  • Provide training for potential cross-cultural workers

Since 1997, Sandals Church has been home to normal, everyday people - business owners and homemakers, educators and baristas - who literally become the grace of God through their own simple acts of obedience, authenticity and sacrificial generosity. Now, it's time for us to join together and take the vision of being real further than ever before.
