Generous Spirit, Full Surrender

The Barnabas Project

The Barnabas Project is a $10 million building expansion project that will add seats to the worship center, create additional classrooms for training, discipleship, and teaching, as well as provide new space for counseling services and administrative offices.

multiply transformed followers of Jesus

Through a generous spirit and a full surrender to God, Barnabas encouraged the body of believers as they learned to embrace the movement of God. We know that this expansion will allow Chapel Pointe further equip the church to, like Barnabas, boldly live a life of faith.

Project Update

Since breaking ground in July 2023, we have been making progress on key components of the project including the updated gym venue, the cafe in the lower gathering area, as well as exterior framing and construction of the admin wing.

Project Update


How will this building project help us reach our community for Christ?

Chapel Pointe believes our kids, students, families, young adults, and the larger church need greater access to unapologetic, biblical teaching. The building expansion will create 39,000 square feet of new space as well as reallocate 5,600 square feet of existing space which will expand the availability of discipleship and support the growing needs of our community.

What are Movement Conversations? How can I attend?

Led by elders and staff, Movement Conversations are 60-minute events occurring throughout May 2024. These events provide opportunities to learn and share about the movement of God at Chapel Pointe and how leadership is responding. Anyone who calls Chapel Pointe their church home is invited to attend.

More information will be available soon.

Will we add stairs to alleviate Sunday morning traffic?

Yes! An alternate plan for adding an additional stairwell is in process.

What about my pledge?

Your pledge is needed! In fact, the administrative wing and the improvements to the gym venue, children’s spaces, and upper lobby will demand continued participation and partnership with the church family to fully accomplish. We want to plan to be able to construct the admin addition, remodel some areas for kids as well as the gym venue and lobby, and pay off all debt within the three-year Barnabas campaign.

What is our financial goal? How are we progressing?

Our goal is to raise $10 million for the Barnabas Project. As of April 1, 2024, we have $6.5 million pledged towards this goal.

When did we break ground?

We broke ground on this project in July 2023.

• Exec office suites

Project Components

Worship Center

Our vision to impact and influence 1,000 churches and see 1,000,000 souls come to Christ starts right here in our West Michigan community. With this change to the worship center, we will provide additional space for people in the community to experience the life-saving power of Jesus.

Project Components

Classroom Spaces

Ensuring room for growing programs so that all cpKids and cpStudents have access to biblical teaching and discipleship on Sunday mornings as well as throughout the week. This includes providing six additional classrooms for cpKids.

Project Components

Counseling Center

Creating offices and a separate entrance for a dedicated biblical counseling center to serve individuals, couples, and families. We have a passion to provide our community with help through life’s struggles and pivotal moments with the Word of God by offering biblically trained counseling services.

God has allowed us to walk alongside individuals, couples, and families in love and wisdom as they encounter various struggles and pains in life. Additional space would mean additional opportunities to share the message of hope and help that is only truly offered through the gospel of Jesus Christ according to Scripture.
